An interesting post from usability expert Jakob Nielsen on the usability of tweets, RSS feeds, etc.

Summary is at the end: 

“The good news is that we can only go up. Users do want these messages. In moderation. If they’re good.”

  1. Hi,thanks for the link. I don’t know whether I support the ‘wrong usage’ of social networks or not. In business terms, yeah I must do that. Because when everybody else is making use of that, to survive in the battle, I also go there. But not even the support of 1000 Reasons gonna make a wrong thing good. Its true that Social networking sites had lost their soul.I’d be honored if you have a look at my blog, where I have a post about the ‘new strategies of social networking‘Thanks.Flek.”
