This photo is of an article found in Cosmopolitan magazine (February 2013 Issue).
As described in the Table of Contents, this article is about: "Manthropology: Decoding his sheets and dreams". However, when you turn to the corresponding page, there is an overload of information. On the first page, the desired information is only on the left-hand side of the page. Because the desired information isn't the first thing your eyes are directed to, you become overwhelmed with random information, whose purpose is to fill up the page. By the time I read about men's fragrances, cologne origins and mixtures, and his obsession with women and beer, I have lost interest in the primary information provided on the page. Then, when I turn to the next page for the other half of the Table of Contents description of the article, I am overwhelmed with anticipated effort I will have to put forth in order to find the desired information. On this page, the desired information only takes up a small part of the middle of the page. All around it you will find random, silly information about a guy in a bathtub, confessions of a athlete, a therapist analysis of sex, six women that make him laugh, a radio show that burns guy's dating habits, the new release of a golf club, and movies that have bromances. This information doesn't remotely relate to the topic of the primary article! This overwhelms me, and I usually end up turning the page because magazines should provide entertainment and should be an easy-read. Because it is not easy to read, an issue of usability arises--the purpose of entertainment is not fulfilled. Sometimes magazines shouldn't focus on the visual (by trying to fill all the space on the page), rather they should ask themselves the question provided in Chapter 3: "Would you rather have your audience read all of less, or none of more?" (Katz 79).
