    How? 99% of these posts are pure hypothesis. Very few articles provide real data, and real explanation of the method used to measure success, so no one can debate. For me they're really poor articles in general.

        While they list some good patterns there from a visual perspective, I would be hesitant to just decide that this is a good article. They haven't referenced any research into what makes these patterns successful in their mind.

        The very first line in that article states, "Data is useless without the ability to visualize and act on it", yet they provide no data to show that their examples work. I would think that it's an extremely important thing to have missed in an article concerning displaying data.

        That article show examples. It's ok. What this article lacks is proof this solution works. Because something that does look logically well done doesn't mean it will work or is better than others. That's why data tells us a better reality and we can even replicate it.

        In my humble experience, I've implemented dozens of UX/UI trends, solutions and they don't work as intended or as promoted on these articles.
