Just curious to ask.
Why O'reilly put the word "Your account" words on the right top portion, instead of "My account" or other, for member log-in purpose?
As a user point of view, I am logging into my account, not I am logging into "Your account". In term of UX design, would it be weird for the words of "Your account"?
Maybe there is the reason behind. Hope you could share...
I am just curious.
At one time we did call the account page "My Account", but we switched over to "Your Account" to be more consistent with other messaging on the website, where we're addressing "You", the user of the website.
Either option can work but we feel "Your Account" is better as our site uses "your" such as "sign in to your account to access your ebooks" which then melds with using "Your Account".
We found some discussions on this topic here:
I hope this helps some clarification to this, and have a great day!
