First things first, it’s worth clarifying what we mean by user feedback.
According to Hotjar:
“User feedback is information collected from users/customers about their reactions to a product, service, or website experience. Feedback and insight from customers and website visitors is used by UX designers, researchers, and marketers to improve the user experience.”Hotjar
It’s a way of understanding how people perceive your online properties, and identifying pain points and opportunities.
The demo from Mopinion stated that websites & apps have around 8 seconds to make a good impression, so it’s more important than ever to understand if a user has a positive or negative experience on your site.
User feedback platforms typically present short surveys on websites, apps or emails, and then centralise the findings from them.
