Weekend feature testing: linkage tools
Hey, I’ve finally been spurred into action on throwing one of them social media link-o-matic things on the site. I’ll probably test at least two options this weekend, so if you see one, either in the posts or on the sidebar, give it a quick test and let us know how it went. I’ll be watching performance and issues, and if people really like one option (or the concept generally) I’ll integrate it more seriously on Monday.
You kids today, with your social media. When I first got online we didn’t have social media, we called Facebook “Stonehenge” or “Citadel” and you only got there with a modem and there wasn’t any link sharing because we didn’t have links. And we loved it! We invented all those “25 things” memes that have been re-infecting Myspace and Facebook and Overshare. It’s like 2008 was the year the Internet dug up a time capsule from the mid-1980s, cracked it open, stuck its head in, inhaled deeply of all the stored viruses, and said “oh yeah, that’s the stuff.”
And then “Hayes? Who the hell is Hayes, and what are these blinking lights?”
