Marketplaces / Spot Fake Reviews With Fakespot
« on: July 15, 2019, 12:55:14 PM »

Plug in a url and it will gauge reviews on retailers: Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, Steam, Sephora

Also works on Yelp and Tripadvisor.

Here is what they thought of the seller of the screen protector I posted a few weeks back which listings reviews and questions didn't match the product (listing is now fixed):

Seller rated D, reviews rating now shows B since this product reviews are now fixed. It was F. Seller rating has remained D.

Needed a new screen protector. Here's one that looks good by review count/stars:

Except, the first 3 reviews talk about a throw, makeup brushes, and LED flashlight:

And the first three Q&A are about a bluetooth keyboard, solar viewing glasses, and some stackable thing

Any ideas what is going on with product listings like this?

Good article from Chris Carter. A bit fluff and I don't agree with everything he says, but good points and he is putting some language and perspective on traffic trends that I have been thinking/feeling. I didn't realize it was this extreme, so this is timely for me.

Marketing / Quitting Facebook is Easy

When you cannot log in to their busted platform.

My profile gets a blank pages and has for days now. I can log into business manager and any other account, but not mine. Finally get a warm body on support - "these things usually fix themselves!" with no help whatsoever.

So, looks like I'm quitting fb after all!

I've been grandfathered on the original 35/month and have no interest in the new discovery channels.

We're out.

I am in lust with this monitor. Dell 38" widescreen with a slight curve. 3840x1600 is just about perfect for me at this size. Absolutely beautiful screen that is well calibrated from the factory, the slightest amount of anti glare coating. Only complaints I've read are about weak-ish black level which affects me none.

I've been using one in the home office since August. Just ordered another to upgrade the 34" lil brother to this model at the main office. There's a coupon on the page for another 50 off. I opted for free shipping and they sent it 2day anyway.

So I got tired of being fatter, poor sleep, a bit lethargic, etc. and got back in the gym last Friday.

Another 3 days in this week and already starting to feel better. Shooting for 5 total by Friday.

Who's with me?
