Two blog posts made headlines on Techmeme over the past few days and I don’t agree with either of them.
First Erick Schonfeld complains that there’s just too much noise coming from social media.
…I don’t have time to sift through thousands of Tweets and Friendfeed messages and blog posts and emails and IMs a day to find the five things that I really need to know…So where is the startup that is going to be my information filter?
Erick’s basically complaining there’s too much output from social media, and he can’t keep up.
Second, Scott Karp. He suggests that it’s not an output problem, but an input problem.
How do you reduce noise on the web? Simple.
Produce less content.
