So Howard’s entirely accurate observations notwithstanding, I have created a few more “lenses” on Squidoo, including one on great books that didn’t have the shelf life they deserved.
To a newcomer’s eye, Squidoo pages are mostly read by other Squidoo users – and at that, mostly because they’re there to promote pages of their own.
But perhaps my cynicism gets the better of me.
Or, alternatively, that’s what makes it a social media site. It’s people interacting by saying “look at my stuff!” to each other over and over. One notch above “Malkovich malkovich!”
