Create Comprehensive Views That Play Off One Another

We’ve discussed the importance of views when you’re building out social applications. The best current social applications utilize all possible views to the maximum degree possible. Don’t simply provide all your content in every view, but rather, use the different views to complement one another.

For example, use the canvas view to configure the content of the smaller views. Offering dynamic views that a user can customize to suit his viewing needs will go a long way toward building an active user base for your application.
