Perhaps this just annoys me because I have satellite service and don't instantly zoom from one page to another on the Internet.
Maybe I'm just being a cranky old woman today, but all the steps it sometimes takes to read an article really annoy me.
Just now I got an email from the Active Rainers group on LinkedIn. One of the articles looked interesting, so I clicked. Of course it led me to a LinkedIn entry with a link to click. OK - click again.
THAT click led me to yet another page with another list of articles - and finally that 4th click led to the article. The only reason I clicked that last time was curiositiy. I wondered if it would lead the the whole article or be like so many that have just a couple of paragraphs and then a "more" link.
By that time I didn't care about reading the article, so I left.
I think... if we're going to offer a link to something we want to share - that link should lead directly to the article.
What do you think?
