Title: Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products |Nir Eyal, Ryan Hoover


User's Notes:
Highly recommended for anyone working on a B2C online product. The 4 key stages of each loop: 1. Trigger: How does the loop initiate? 2. Action: Once the user is aware they need to use your product (through the trigger), what it the simplest action they can perform to get some kind of reward. 3. Variable reward: How are they rewarded for this behavior? 4. Investment: Finally, the user needs to put something back in to increase the chance of repeating the loop.
