Hash Tag

A little kerfuffle took place this week between Hashable CEO Michael Yavonditte and Betabeat columnist Mike Taylor. It’s been a PR nightmare for the company.

What’s the fuss about Hashable? It’s supposed to be the “ultimate networking app”, but I feel that Bob’s take on panel 4 is more inline with how most people view it.

Do you use Hashable? Think Mike Taylor’s column is on the money or out of line? Sound off in the comments below!

    I pretty much with Taylor on this.

    I played around with Twitter for a bit. It was fun for awhile, but the novelty quickly wore off.

    I generally prefer to be able to communicate something of substance, and keeping track of hashes really seems to be a waste of time in a day that too short for me already :) IMHO.

    You should change your URL to this:
    http://www.betabeat.com/2011/03/17/hashable-is-worthless/
    The one you have is a tag page

      Fixed. Thanks for the heads-up, James.

Tell me what you think!
