    • sounds easy, but it isn’t
    • focus on individuals
    • understand the needs of a community
    • that’s totally challenging
    • the 8 commandments of receiving feedback
    • 1. Get advice and input from experts but design for the broader community 2. Respond to all feedback, even when you respond by saying, “No thanks.” 3. Do not take negative feedback personally; remember that when people give feedback, they are doing so because they care and have taken the time to improve their experience. 4. Give credit to those whose ideas you implement; nothing says “we are open to conversation” better.
    • 5. When you a implement new idea, make sure that you highlight it, and ask for feedback. 6. Make small, continuous changes rather than waiting to implement everything at once. 7. Don’t just wait for feedback to come to you, go out and find it; people are probably talking about your product elsewhere. 8. No matter how many people like you, you will always have someone who doesn’t - mind the haters.
