A well-designed website should be clear, above all. No flashing GIFs (we miss you, 90s!), no obnoxious flash menus, no overwhelming lists of links. And heads up, WaPo website: it shouldn't be blanketed in insanely redundant Facebook sharing buttons.
SHARE ME! LIKE ME! LINK ME! We get it. Enough. One or two buttons should suffice. We know how to put things on Facebook if we want to.
