Is 2010 the year of redundant web?
I get up every morning and part of my am ritual is to start my day checking my sites – tech, social media, randomness – I need to know what’s going on. Now if I find something interesting I’ll share it via Facebook, Twitter, Digg, or email.
You still with me? Good!
Here’s where things get dicey…I’ll see that same story another 20-30 times (if it’s a relatively popular story) over the next 2 days via those same sites – Twitter, Facebook, Digg. And there’s no way to filter it out! Aside: Can that be next on my list of filter suggestions for Twitter at least? It’s great that I can filter out hastags that I don’t want to follow (i.e. #bachelorette) but we can’t filter out stories I’ve already seen/read/RT’d?
Welcome to 2010 – the year of redundant web!
I love social media and it’s ability to spread news and information at lightening speed. In fact, I ❤ it. But what is bugging me a bit is the redundancy. My favourite is when people RT stories of interest and add in their own comments/ideas/suggestions.
I love when debate/conversations spark out of information but is there such a thing as information redundancy? Will there ever be? When is it too much?
