Thing #25 Letterpop

Letterpop was a complete and utter waste of time. I have enjoyed most of the Learning 2.0 and 2.1 programme, but why anyone would waste their time with this piece of crap when it is easier to make up newsletters and announcements with a word processor is beyond me. The fact that you seemed forced to take images from Flickr is also very, very annoying especially as more people use Facebook rather than Flickr for photo sharing#. The Letterpop users are also constrained by inflexible goofy templates, and an interface that is more sizzle than substance. Logging in Letterpop it assured me “You're gonna love it!” Frankly, I’d rather chew rusty razer blades while swimming through toxic sludge. If anyone has to rely on Letterpop to create a half-decent newsletter, they shouldn’t be allowed to do a newsletter in the first place. If this was Eurovision, it would be "zéro pointes" for Letterpop.

# According to Techcrunch in November 2007 Facebook hosted 4.1 billion photos to Flickr's 2 billion. For details see:
