Registrations forms are a pain in the backside, if its not forcing me to enter a password twice and it not asking me for information that you don’t need then it’s probably that stupid squinty captcha text that is either really easy (and a waste of time) or its so complicated that actually even with all the might of Google servers you couldn’t solve it. Either way you can probably see that I hate registration forms, and forms in general, which are long – complicated – annoying – unhelpful – meaningless and well, insert more adjectives here.
But the challenge with registration forms doesn’t stop there, and thats where Customer Profile Based Solutions company Janrain excel hugely. Whilst looking around their blog to see what i could learn I found this great infographic on registration forms and the reality of them. Some of the figures are amazing.
