Sphinn Announces Spam and Bury, Search Engine Watch Adds Social Media Forum

As you may know, the highly popular Sphinn Internet Marketing Forum is looking for ways to get better. So they're proposing a Desphinn button which will work much like a "Bury" button that you see on other social networks. If you think a post doesn't deserve to be frontpaged, you can downvote it using Desphinn, or so that's the goal.

But is it worth it? The current proposal suggests that when you downvote something, you need to give your reasons why -- and the information will be public. I have to agree that this is a good way of using it, but t here are other forum members who find that this can polarize the community and cause animosity. Honestly, though, if your reasons are compelling enough, you can agree to disagree -- or so we'd hope that the community would be open to criticisms from their peers.

I think it's going to be a wait-and-see type deal. As Maki says:

I'm looking forward to the depshinn button. I understand the reservations of others, but its good to just launch it, monitor how the community uses it and then make the necessary adjustments from the feedback or actions.

On that note, there is also a "Report as Spam" button on Sphinn. This is for blatant spam, not for posts you disagree with.

Finally, Search Engine Watch Forums has come out with a Social Media category. If you're in love with social media like me, this is where you should be posting.

Forum discussion continues at Sphinn, Sphinn, and Search Engine Watch Forums.
