In this hyper partisan world we live in there is an endless stream of conflict and misinformation. And many are marketing the theory that banning speech from some online platforms is an encroachment on the First Amendment Rights of individuals.

Take Alex Jones: I’m going to be brutally honest here. I think he is a cretin whose sole purpose in this world is to create more conflict and promote aggression (verbal and physical) against others, because there is a market for it. Espousing theories like factual events with real-life ramifications never happened, like the school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary, or the shooting in south Florida? Come off it man.

There’s so much more that can be said about individuals like him, David Duke (former Grand Wizard of the KKK), Richard Spencer (proponent of the alt-right and Nazism) and so many others. But how many of these big names, that lack common decency to the whole extent of humankind are behind bars or have been persecuted for their speech.

Screw that.

How many of them have been prevented from speaking at all?

Many people are angry and calling on a mob against Apple, YouTube, Spotify and other web hosting platforms for kicking certain videos, podcasts and in the rare example an entire library off publication.

Some are calling it an abrogation of the First Amendment Rights of the individual.

And they are wrong. Categorically.

No one is saying Alex Jones, David Duke, Richard Spencer et al cannot say the hateful, disgusting and inflammatory things they do on a regular basis.

These companies and publication platforms are saying, you cannot say them here.

Is that a violation of one’s First Amendment Rights? No.

How so? Simple. These are private and corporate entities that have the right to control the media and publication material published on their platforms. Much like a newspaper Chief Editor has the right to decide between publishing a piece of news in their paper or not publishing it, web content platforms have the right to publish, remove or otherwise prevent material from invading their space. Regardless of who presents it or why.

This is not a violation of one’s First Amendment Rights. It is however a control on what certain organizations would to be related to.

Be honest with yourself. I know I have my own prejudices, but would you really want someone saying that 20 or so kids who are dead, and parents in mourning is a lie on your website? Would you want white supremacists posting Nazi propaganda all over your Facebook page, saying you endorse the viewpoint that Jews, Muslims, Catholics and anyone not white skinned deserves to die? Maybe you’re OK marketing such ideas to the public as a whole.

I could be wrong here. Maybe you are totally ok with that.

I however am not.

I am also very glad that Apple, YouTube, Spotify etc.… are finally putting their money where their mouths are. It’s great to say that one holds no prejudice to religious, political extremist viewpoint and in an ideal world, none would. But this is not an ideal world and sometimes the noise on the air does need to be turned off.

This is what is happening with Alex Jones.

And I support it all the way.

Want To Do Web Design?

So, you are interested in web design and you work or live in Clearwater, right?  Well one of the great things about it is that there are so many programs that you can use to learn how to do web design on your own without paying the vast amounts of money needed to go to college for it.

 

There are two sources that are really good for those who want to learn on their own.  Youtube has millions of such videos and Lynda.com is my personal favorite.

There are dozens of companies around as well that can do it for you to, and we are one of them at Buzzazz Business Solutions.  However, the reason that you want an aesthetic looking site is important.  Beauty keeps visitors paying attention.  So does content, what is on the site, to a lesser extent.  But it’s really about the aesthetics. If you have a good looking site then you are going to retain more traffic than you are going to lose, and that is invaluable.

web design

One of the factors that must be mentioned in relation to web design is that a responsive site now counts a large deal in this regard. A responsive site means that if you have a smart phone you can use any given site on it the same way you would operate it on a computer.  Make sense? You have probably visited some sites on your phone that didn’t operate properly and you didn’t like trying to use them.  That’s what we call old and outdated.

If you haven’t upgraded yet, do it!

So, what is web design?  It is more than aesthetics.  It is function and keeping your site’s visitors engaged and interested.

SEO Agencies in Clearwater – Why We Work

This is going to be a short and sweet article about SEO from a Clearwater based Advertising and Business Development company.

Why?  Because SEO, or Search Engine Optimization is a complex field that doesn’t make sense in terms of how it works for most.  Personally, I think that is exactly the way Google designed it, so they don’t have to be forthright about the ever changing criteria one needs to follow in order to ensure that they are doing it properly.

So, what is SEO and why should you bother with it?

SEO

This is essentially the engine that makes your car run, and if you don’t have a running engine, there is no way you are getting anywhere in a hurry.  That’s the basic reason why you should hire someone who can do it properly, or learn how to do it yourself from places like Moz.com or Google Webmaster Tools.

These are two of the most authoritative sources for everything about Search Engine Optimization.  Now, bear in mind that it is likely in your best interest as a business owner to hire an Advertising Agency to do it for you, because you will run into countless ideas and theories that have little substantiation and may very easily become confused.  Oh, and it is a long process doing current and previous research.

Do you really have that sort of time on your hands?

Give Buzzazz a call, and we will happily help you understand as much of why this is important as is possible, and what you can do for yourself.
