The Internet certainly affords individuals an unprecedented degree of information and education, as well as the need to decide how and where they get it. An ever-growing network of news sources, blogs, and social networks ring with just as many voices, but determining which to listen to for disparate arenas of our lives proves for a tall order. Certainly, Facebook is the main source for connecting with our colleagues, college friends, and other acquaintances to find out about what matters to them. Websites like the New York Times offer frequently updated stories about issues from business to arts. But what about when we’re deciding which business to patronize for a certain good or service?
Sites like Yelp, and other using similar models, without a doubt provide a wealth of feedback—but is it the type that’s useful? Does one person’s account of a particularly busy happy hour at a local restaurant, when they happened to be in a rush, really serve our purpose? What about a review of a law firm posted by someone who happened to arrive with an extremely weak case, or alternately, a frequent customer of a sporting goods supplier who sings unyielding praises of the place because his uncle owns it? These snippets can lead to a convoluted, hard to navigate environment.
At Dailynewsmug.com, we maintain a commitment to a different source of information. One that collects the facts, reads the news, and aggregates the various materials into straightforward analysis. The site will feature regular updates about companies and entrepreneurs pursuing progress, presenting new services, and more.
