Snap’s Previews – A revolt brewing?

Many prominent bloggers, including some of my favorites like Robert Scoble’s Scobleizer and Thomas Hawk’s Digital Connection are reomving Snap’s previews from their blog.

It looks like I wasn’t the only one that found Snap’s pop-up link previews can be quite annoying. To their credit have options to disable these, but it is not really easy to find how. Now, who will be the next bloggers to kill Snap’s previews? Since WordPress has activated this feature on their hosted blogs, it looks like it is only a start.

    Jerome,

    I like the Snap’s popup link because it gives me an idea of what the blog looks like. But it seems that some folks are afraid of this feature. I read some funny stories on some blogs. Thus, to not deter their readers bloggers have turned it down.

  2. Thomas Hawk put them back again.

    To Snap.com ‘s credit, they made some improvements and have made it easier to disable the previews.
