Performing Actions Optimistically

Luke Wroblewski:

Taking this principle further, we can actually create the illusion that your action has taken effect when in reality it hasn’t yet. Instragram co-founder Mike Krieger calls this technique “performing actions optimistically”. As an example, when you like a photo on Instagram, the button changes instantly telling you that your action is complete.

His other examples are very interesting, too. You might want to keep these things in mind.
