World Wide Web is the place where we openly express our ideas, share opinions and also learn new things. While there are lots of famous blogs all through out the internet, sharing their opinions, I certainly see most of the writers on those blogs have no clue on what they are talking about. Especially I have to mention a couple of those websites that just criticize everything just to get an impact on their articles and get few comments, like TNW, Gizmodo, ZDnet and Kotaku. It’s a good strategy to say wrong things about something to get more impact, but also I see that as a pathetic and desperate strategy.
Just this morning I read an article on TNW about the Microsoft’s Socl social network. They went on and on claiming that “it’s a trap” and there’s no good thing about it. It seems like they have just found about this network today, while I’ve been talking about Socl since the beginning of my blog. I also have to mention that this is the same writer who said that Google+ is not a real social network. Who also uses the same network to promote his own posts. There are many other writers on TNW who claims that Google+ is like a “ghost town” but also you will notice that most of them only have like 50 followers on the network, which shows how active they are on the network.
Another post I found on ZDnet reminds me of a jackass that got killed after annoyingly bark like a dog. This post describes Google’s new augmented reality glasses as some kind of a “total dorky” thing. He also asks “who would buy these things”. Well, that was way before Google started demonstrating this product in real world. And where is this guy now? He’s totally silence. That’s what happens when you predict something before it happens.
Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t have anything against TNW, ZDnet or Gizmodo, I love reading posts on those sites. But these kind of writers are the one’s who uses the website for their own purposes and write things about social networks without even doing any kind of research on the subject. I had my doubt’s about Google+, but that was before I use the network. I used to follow these kinds of trends and parades, blinded by the idiotic posts of these writers. Eventually after I figured the truth about these articles, I got tired of these websites and useless articles and reading all these negativity about the services that clearly make a big difference around the web. In fact I believe that Google+ is making a big impact on the social web. I think of Google+ as a revolutionary concept of social networks and personally I prefer Google+ over Facebook because now Facebook is nothing more than a place where everyone whine about their personal problems. I had too much of that.
I can give as many as examples as you want, sadly it would only make this post too boring for you to read. Everyone has a right to share their opinion. That include’s you too. But that doesn’t mean they have a right to force people into believing something they shouldn’t. I’ve just decided to write this post to let everyone know that, never follow these kinds of trends on famous websites, don’t be too quick to judge and believe what they say. Do your research and experiments first before making a decision about something.
Thank you for reading.
