#Google is trying again to convince you, YES YOU, to contribute for free to Google Maps.
Please don't.
It is 100% #proprietary, Google has full control over the data you added and people can only access Google Maps over proprietary channels where Google dictates the rules. This gives them too much power.

Contribute to #OpenStreetMap instead, it's a project by the community, for the community.

Comparto por aquí para alcanzar más difusión. Mi amigo Fuego Fatuo Art es escultor y creador de criaturas (podéis ver su trabajo aquí )
Hace un par de días ha descubierto que en Etsy hay dos tiendas que han robado fotos originales de sus piezas y están timando a clientes haciéndoles creer que les venden esas piezas. Es todo un fraude. Ha intentado comunicarse con Etsy y denunciar pero no es posible hacerlo. Os pido difusión para que esta escoria no siga robando a gente. Gracias.

From the best search in history to a #spam-and-#scam graveyard - the #enshittification of Google Search


Search and spam have always been at war. In the Altavista days, “search engine optimization” consisted of ending every page with seven paragraphs of white-on-white keywords (“keyword stuffing”).

Today, the SEO industry uses much more sophisticated techniques, locking horns with Google. Of course: Google’s the first — and often the last — place we go to for answers, so snagging top billing in a Google search results page is, approximately speaking, equivalent to being “true.”

Google is losing. Search for your local restaurant — a verified Google merchant, no less! — and the top result will be a scammer that cloned their website, jacked up their prices by 15 percent, who’ll take your order, cream off that sweet 15, and then pretend to be you and place the order with the restaurant.

Getting rooked for 15 percent on your takeout meal is one thing, but that’s strictly smalltime: the big money is in switching out the phone numbers Google gives for every major US airline, substituting numbers for boiler-rooms where scammers will take your credit card and rip you off for all you’re worth.

How did Google get this enshittified? And more to the point, why do we keep using it?

Would you fall for this? My youngest kiddo thought she was getting a special #kitten. They just stole $550 of her money and then blocked her on #PayPal without providing the kitten. She spent all of yesterday crying over her lost savings. I didn’t know about it until it was too late. Turns out they have similar sites for #puppies, #birds #reptiles -all #scammer sites.

Caveat emptor. Do not buy #pets from unverified online sellers!
