Blogspot.com, a popular blogging service, has stepped up its vigilance against offensive content in their servers.
Blogspot is a widely used blogging service owned by Google. Blogspot has added a feature called “Flags” on their Blogger Navbar which appears on the topside of Blogspot pages.
The “Flag?” button allows the blogging community to easily note questionable content, which in turn helps us take action when needed. So we’re relying on you, the users, to be our eyes on the web, and to let us know of potential issues that are important to you.
This reminds me of the feature on Friendster that says something like “report this user”. Although I felt that some of my friends’ photos were just tooooo vulgar for public consumption (…”mahiya ka naman!”), I never reported a user. I guess because I wasn’t sure if the person would know that I reported.
Blogspot Flags appears to be anonymous so far.
But wait. Doesn’t this mean the Blogspot will install a cookie in my PC and that it will have a way of telling where I, the anonymous me, have been to lately?
Am just being careful about this Google company, Blogspot, where I house my personal blogs. Hmmmm… I wonder.
