Like many in the Blogosphere, I use a collection of tools to help publicize this blog and other interesting information I find online. One of those tools is paper.li. Some folks seem to like paper.li and others don't.
For: It's a nice collection of stuff that ___ reads. I can read it all at once. I don't have to click the link to see what it is about.
Against: Too many ____ Daily's tweets and retweets just add junk tweets to twitter.
The most recent complaint goes a bit deeper. It's about how paper.li redirects ad revenue to paper.li's ad content instead of the original publisher.
I like to use paper.li because it automatically aggregates what the people I'm following are reading and I read my own front page that it creates for me every day. I see stuff I wouldn't otherwise see because I don't have time to click on the tweeter's link that was posted.
It also organizes the tweets by topic, although that clearly needs more work. I find it rather odd what gets put where some days. Organization of tweets and links by hashtag are the most valuable to me. Other tabs are not clearly as good.
I don't like the tabs, because I'd rather scroll through one long page than use tabs (it's quicker or at least feels that way).
I don't worry about ad content. Paper.li provides a valuable service, and for that, I'm willing to put up with their ads. They are at least pertinent. Also, if I want all the details on an article, when I click through, I'll get the original ads that were posted with the article. Paper.li doesn't usually include the full content of a post unless its mostly a graphic or video. In that case, I suppose there might be an issue for creators of rich media content, but that's not typically an issue for most of what I read.
I like what Paper.li does for this blog-site, for my twitter presence, and for my readers. What do you think about it?
