WebmasterWorld is probably the best site overall when it comes to discussing many topics we all deal with on a daily basis. Why, oh why does WW sport the Google+ button at the end of every thread?
Many here are aware of the power and reach of Google, the sometimes unethical practices that the company has been involved in and the completely mythical nature of Google. Heck, moderators of this very site have hinted at the potential evils and disadvantages of having anything to do with Google.
Why on earth does the Google+ button exist on almost every single page here? It provides virtually no benefit to WebmasterWorld and one can only debate how much data Google uses to build a profile of somebody. (This is a question of how much, not IF).
This is more of a concern for webmasters than anybody else.
What benefit does the G+ button provide users here?
Until this question is answered, I will continue to remain skeptical about which threads I even dare to read. Having this useless button on threads is detrimental to the community here.
