Google Sidewiki: the abuse of UK newspapers begins

September 24, 2009 9 Comments

I just tweeted that I was finding it hard to resist the temptation to be the first to sidewiki the home page of UK newspapers. (Sidewiki is Google's new way to let you see what other users have said about a page while you look at it).

The first sidewiki entry on the Mail homepage

It looks like I'm too late as the Mail already has been sidewikied as this picture shows.

Why??

..would you read this sad toss? Don't you have more important things to do? Seriously.. you'll find better/proper news here: http://www.guardian.co.uk

Have a great day! : )

I can't imagine the Mail will be impressed by this sort of thing. It'll be interesting - worrying for the brands in question - how google and websites end up dealing with this sort of issue ...

This one will probably get reported as 'abuse' - but other negative comments will probably end up staying on some sites. They've already started slagging off Microsoft.
