Our Week In The Web: August 21, 2015

This isn't the first time we've wondered this, but we had to wonder it again if you click links we share, both on Twitter and on Facebook. The responses from some of our followers suggest you don't, which is totally fine, but the often angry and accusatory reactions and comments to posted links — both internal show postings and external article links — leads us to believe that you mostly comment first, and click later, if at all. We wouldn't bother to wonder, but the strong and occasionally outraged tone of some of your reactions makes us question our web practices. Do you skim first, comment second, and read and / or click later? Or are you just looking to be angry at somebody, and our disembodied web voice provided that outlet? Let us know here, or respond on Facebook, Tumblr and @OnPointRadio (which we know you'll probably do, anyway!)
