Deja Adding Links Within Posts
from the trying-to-make-more-money dept
People are upset that Deja.com is now starting to automatically add links to product information if the name of the product is mentioned within a posting on their site. Some people feel that it’s changing the content of what they post, while others (especially Deja) consider it a value-added service. It’s obviously designed to help Deja make a little more money. I’m a bit torn on this issue, but in the end, I think I side with Deja. They are allowing people the opportunity to set it up so their posts don’t have the links, or to view all posts without links. Also, if it really bothers you, then don’t use Deja.
