Take Note - I'd rather look at an infographic than read the entire story to get the same result. Visual graphics are the wave of the future, especially with mobile.
Best Advice - Unless you have something meaningful to say....don't say it. There is already too much information out there and you are only adding to the pile and confusion with nonsense. Everyone needs to remember the most import skill in life - listening. This seems to be forgotten when people have a voice to spout off.
All the ads out there have become annoying and I find myself gravitating to sites without ads. My teenage kids pay zero attention to them and despise them.
I like the idea of freemium sites where I can pay a small subscription fee for good content to not have the ads. Ads are for online magazines and for google where I am actually searching for something.
