Infinite Scrolling: To Use or Not to Use?

I have found myself frustrated many times in the past by a page with infinite scrolling because I cannot get to the footer. I have also found myself in the opposite situation; frustrated by a page that will not scroll further when I know there is more content.

To use infinite scrolling or not to use infinite scrolling? That is the question. The answer, as with many things, is it depends on the situation. Recently, I came across a great article on PowerToFly's blog that offers some suggestions on how to decide whether or not to use infinite scrolling for a website or application.

I hope you find it as helpful as I have! Thanks for reading!
