When I wrote recently about Filterstream, it was to tell you about how it allowed hotels to show you only those TripAdvisor reviews that made them look good. The problem is, that entirely subverted TripAdvisor’s integrity.
At the time, I checked with our contact at TripAdvisor, who said: “We have no comment for now on the Filter Stream widget.”
On checking now, however, I find:
- The widget is unavailable
- All reference to TripAdvisor has been removed from the Filterstream site
- Filterstream’s YouTube video has been taken down
Therefore, I assume that the product was not in accordance with TripAdvisor’s wishes. I’ll let you know if I learn anything more.
