Internet content rating systems
The truth is that humans are influenced by product, video and any type of 5 star rating system associated with internet content. The problem is that most systems require an account to be created to vote. The truth lies in a the systems that don’t require an account and double opt-in. The real question or reason for accounts and double opt-in is control of these systems. Don’t believe the rating you see unless they don’t require multiple cycles of interaction to vote.
Have a great American Labor Day Weekend!
