URL Shortener Bitly Announces Big Update (Unfortunately, It Sucks, And Everybody Hates It)

Here’s the thing: people don’t like change.

This has always been true. Whenever an adjustment is made to something popular, irrespective of how significant it is, most people, at first, won’t like. A certain percentage will vocalise their dismay. Others will join in. For a while, it will be nasty.

Sure, you’ll always get a minority of endless whingers, constantly threatening to quit and so on. But most of the time, most of us will, eventually, roll with it.

Again, if the changes actually improve the service. This is the absolute key part.

Yesterday, URL shortener of choice Bitly, which has generated more than 25 billion shortened links since inception, announced a change to their platform. A big change. New Bitly, they’re calling it.

Great. There’s only one small problem: everybody, and I mean everybody*, hates it.

Twitter Campaign Wants Female Visitors To Respect UAE Dress Code In Malls

When visiting another country, it’s only good manners to read up on and observe that country’s customs. But for some reason, that isn’t happening when folks visit the United Arab Emirates (UAE) – and it’s causing a bit of an uproar.

If you only read this intro, remember this little tidbit: If you’re a woman and you’re planning a visit to Dubai any time soon, be sure to pack appropriate items alongside your toothbrush and pajamas – namely, Capris and short-sleeved t-shirts. And you would do well to just leave the tank tops and short shorts at home.
