The Drastic Change Of Bubblews. Good or bad?
Bubblews has recently undertaken an extreme makeover. Are the changes good or bad?
So far, I am enjoying the changes. They have encouraged me to write a few more bubbles as I had pretty much stopped doing so. The most beneficial change is the ability to delete comments on our posts. Now we can put an end to those who try to pick fights, who leave meaningless comments, and spam the comment section. This is similar to HubPages and makes HP a better place to write.
The worst change is the lag time for payments. It has now increased from the original 3 day wait to "up to 30 days"! So, I wish they would improve that for sure.
There are still a couple of features they are working on and some bugs to iron out, but overall, I see the change as positive.
I'm finding it confusing to navigate. I can't find my recent notifications, and the front page only has a few bubbles, as opposed to the many they used to have. But I like the fact that I can type in someone's name in the search engine and easily find them. Doing that in the previous site used to result in errors.
The new look is a little drastic and I find it very similar to Twitter. Initially it was a little difficult to navigate but you get used to it in a few days. I saw the earnings go down quite a bit as some people didn't know how to like a post, not everyone looks for a yellow star
Some of the notifications keep disappearing after a while. I guess the team is working on that, hope to see it fixed soon. Good thing is that they got rid of the dislike button. But the minimum 40 character limit on comments, which we thought would reduce spamming, isn't all that effective. Spammers are now using longer comments
People are saying that the new look is very professional and sleek, I agree to it. But for me, Bubblews was more about fun while earning. I really miss all the colorful pages, the pink and blue bubbles
Haven't been there in a long, long time except to cash out accumulated earnings. I don't plan on returning for any other reason. Haven't been here for even longer
Wow, it looks totally different! And no controversial dislike button. The main reason for the upgrade was to fix the numerous bugs the previous version was riddled with, so I guess we'll see how it works out.

Looks or Brains? A drastic change in the recruitment of job candidates.

The process used to be simple and fair - the candidate with the right qualifications and experience would get the job. These days, however, the process has become a lot more complex. Employers/Recruiters have become extremely demanding and the astonishing fact now is that looks and appearance are...

Starting this Saturday the new minimum for redemption will be $50. That pretty much kills my already waning interest in the site. The level of activity to get to $50 is more than daunting; it's depressing. I might try to reach one more redemption before Saturday, and then let it...

This seems to be a recurring issue with editorial corrections. The Editbot wants to replace the word "and" with the word "to." This doesn't work in every case. Here's an example.Someone commented on my hub about emus, "You gave it a try and learned a lesson." The bot...
