Those who have gone through my jQuery infinite scroll plugins article must know there is always a tug-o-war between two different types of preferences. Some prefers the pagination technique and others support the use of infinite scrolling. Both sides put logic and counter-logic explaining the better one. Well, according to me, pagination or infinite scrolling both comes with their own uniqueness & use. Which one to prefer totally depends on the needs of the website.
For an example, for google using pagination instead of infinite scrolling is much profitable and convenient as they can show more ads in a better way, where as social medias like twitter, facebook will always prefer using infinite scrolling as none likes to click every now and then while scrolling through their news feeds.
