Allow for greater social interconnectedness in your designs so that people can go to each other for guidance and advice within your application, such as with ratings, reviews, news and forums. Allow users to forge helpful relationships, be it with similar users or with customer support.

The term user experience seems to be a popular trend recently, but how can we describe user experience and how can we make sure to offer enough of it on our websites?
