Exploitation?

7 posts in this topic

I was reading a thread at another site (forum) where, it appears, several members are upset that the host site (?) is tweeting links and sometimes click bait images (such as wrinkled hands for grandparents) that leads to threads in their forum- Granted info offered on forums is public, but do you think the practice I described above is a form of exploitation?

Sounds like the hosts are trying to attract more people to their forums. I'm guessing their goal is to keep the site alive and thriving, which would benefit both the site and the members. So IDK if we can call that "exploitation." I understand if some of the members are upset that their conversations are being linked on twitter, etc., where they never intended them to be. But hopefully, they're careful not to use their real names as screennames of give out identifying details, as they should be, anyway.

I don't see it being exploitation, but another form of advertising.

I didn't think anything that was ever posted of the internet could be considered totally private and unaccessible.

Google your own user name on this site and see where it takes you.
