I recently signed up and joined the Telegraph Business Club, it seemed to be a good venue for some online business networking along with a great list of events to attend. The only problem is actually networking.
As per their site “The Telegraph Business Club exists to give readers a forum in which to share their views, insights and challenges with each other. We hope this exchange will help to enhance your business performance.”
Ok, so to use the forum, you must click on one of a list of bullet point titles to view the “post”. I did this, found someone requesting help on growing traffic online and using different marketing tactics. Of course I know an angle there ;). So I started searching for a place to leave a comment, a button some text…nothing?
Clicking back I read the following:-
“All member feedback is valuable – no matter how big or small. If you want to provide any comments, articles or raise any issues that you want to leverage input from your peers, then send an email to Talk Back.
Please note that comments may appear with your name and company. If you prefer your comments to be anonymous, please state this in your email.”
Come on Telegraph what is the point in vetting every comment if you allow anonymous comments, install real forum software and lets get talking.
