Free source software (or what is known as Open Source) has created an atmosphere of creativity and innovation by providing the opportunity to modify it, if by producing derived software or redistributing code, based on the different level of insight among people, as each person has his own vision, and thus numerous software are created Impressive due to the skill of programmers in the absence of any specification of areas of use.

It is the other side of the coin that transforms the web from a mere source of ready-made information to a festival of interactive information. For example, the average user finds a place for his opinion in most of the sites he visits, an easy way to assess and share what others read, moreover to some small but influential details such as the opportunity of changing the shape of the page or colors or arrange content.

It may be reasonable to say that the tree of the Web’s interest in user humanity dates back to its first roots between 1928-1932, and although the history seems illogical, it has a unusual tale: George Elton Mayo, a psychologist and professor of industrial research at Harvard University at the time was known from his social research and studies conducted at the Hawthorne plant of ESTERN ELECTRIC CO. in Chicago in the USA.

The purpose of these studies was to determine the effect of a number of fabric variables such as lighting, working conditions and rest periods on the productivity of individuals. Among the most important results of his experiments: The morale of the workers rises regardless of the physical changes that occur, and this is due to the individuals’ feeling of satisfaction caused by caring for them as individuals only ( sense of their humanity.

possibly Mayo did not know at the time that he was the reason for a brilliant discovery, as he was the first to address the interest in the humanity of individuals, which is the passport to gain their loyalty, and this discovery led to other similar discoveries throughout the different eras of history.

Let’s take, for example: Google Answers Service, a service that is known to be not guaranteed, meaning that the answer you get is not necessarily correct, yet the demand for it is amazing (due to people’s sense of their ability to ask any question that occupies their minds) to the point that it required Google to set up a system To assess according to reputation, number of points, number of followers, and other metrics, as is the case in the evaluation system for sellers of the famous site eBay, and examples of Google’s certainty of the importance of the user’s humanity is the box titled Something I still can’t find using Google and its meaning: Something I have not found yet on Google , which is an invitation from Google to inform its users of the importance of their opinions, but users often give funny answers such as: wife, my keys, happiness, … etc. These answers add a pleasant atmosphere to users’ accounts and raise their morale, even for a moment.

Commercial companies pay immense amounts (deals in millions of dollars) to advertise and conclude partnership contracts between them and the sites that have the largest number of users. Commercial companies and moral gain through individuals and users.

Provided you own a blog or a website, try to supply simple services to visitors to ensure their loyalty and frequent return to your site, and over time, commercial companies will come to you instead of you looking for them, perfect your work and make your focus all towards satisfying your customers.

Hamsa: Fortunately, the insane acceleration in the sites trying to attract users to them offers numerous options to suit all tastes. The general picture of the moment generation of the web today is similar to the gathering of users in a free coffee carnival, in which sites compete and innovate in providing various types of coffee and sweets, and the user only has to feel well-being.
