Social media gurus (insert the level of snark you wish) will tell you that “hashtags are all the rage” and “retweet everything so people know what you believe in.”
They’ll also tell you that the kindest thing you can do to the lovely people who have taken the time and effort to find your site is to trap you there with links that only open external windows and tabs.
But why? I ask. What rationale, other than vanity, is suitable to compel visitors to never “leave” your website?
