The more I examine Facebook and Twitter, the redundancy of the interaction is unbelievably redundant. To me, this comes off as an easy solution for your users to not get lost. Not get confused, if you simply place your directions in every nook and cranny - they are bound to see it.
I don’t like that direction.
User interaction should be simply a discovery that the user gains through simple use of the product. Don’t assume your user won’t understand. Perhaps, assume that your user’s intentions and act upon them, within the information architecture.
Of course, I emphasize, simple use of the product. Taking “simply a discovery that the user gains” out of context can be a pretty disastrous.
