A while ago I mentioned I abandoned my activity from Netscape mainly due to my own burnout on it and the direction the site was taking. The demographics are of older folks who enjoy discussing politics. Looking at the page now, it is composed of 90% politics, and 9% Celebrities, and maybe .5% tech related. This is disappointing because I wanted Netscape to have a variety of topics actively being discussed. A short while after their Beta stage, it was that way. I suppose their users declined due to Calacanis’ unwavering methods to improve the site. I was only critical on Calacanis because he held the power to change and was accessible.
Either way, I doubt you’ll see much of me on Netscape simply due to the parade of Politics on there. If they can showcase more of a variety of stories, I’ll be happy to come back. Not everyone wants to talk about politics, it is just their demographic (older folks) discuss it.
What do you think of Netscape and the fact 90% of their stories are politics-related?
