Amazon's at it again -- no more tags.

Thursday, January 24, 2013
Well, Amazon apparently is continuing along their "if it's not broke, let's break it!" course of action.

The latest victim? Tags. Yep. If you go look at book pages, tags are gone. Which means it's more difficult than ever to find similar books, or get into the discussion boards (because why on EARTH would a company want to make it EASY to actually ACCESS one of their features??).

Yes, tags were prone to abuse, just like nearly every other user-involved feature on Amazon (reviews, community discussions, etc) but at least they HELPED.

Pphhttttp!
