Football in Africa – how quickly they forget!

Football in Africa - how quickly they forget!
So much for footballing legacy! During this week’s South Africa – Ghana game I wasn’t able to find coverage on any major UK news website. I tried the BBC, The Independent and The Telegraph and no mention of the game anywhere. It’s just a month since the World Cup ended and already African football is ...

Basically, it’s a jargonny way of saying that we try to use familiar pieces of user interface so that new users don’t feel there is a massive learning curve when getting their heads around a new service.
