“Listen to users too much, you build a bad product,” believes Scribd’s Trip Adler. While analytics data can provide helpful information, he cautions that if you listen only to feedback from the most vocal users, you risk building a product that will appeal to a small niche market. Accuray founder John Adler agrees — listen to your users, but base your decisions on your own vision for your product.
