For the sake of everyone else, say why
24th May 2014
A trend I see these days is people not liking a new site or thing but not really offering any reasons why. I’ve been thinking for a while now that isn’t really constructive for everyone reading or the industry itself. First off, the said owner of the site might be reading and wants to know what people think, gathering feedback. It might be a fellow peer who is finding their way in the world of web and wants to know what people are thinking.
I know Twitter is probably not the best place to give indepth critique on things but I think we should be more descriptive for everyone’s sakes. It engages better conversation than the usual pitch fork mentality where people just agree with the original poster without really offering any valuable insight into why.
More often than not, the reasons for not agreeing or not liking something are obvious but we really must think about what we write. For the sake of everyone else.
