Mashable releases report that trashes cities with people living below poverty line

Today Mashable released a report, “Top 100 Socially Networked Cities in the U.S.” They took the the percentage of households that use social media to determine “which city has the bragging rights to calling itself The Capital of Social Networking.” Chicago ranks at #39. New York City at #53.

Cities rank low are because they have more people living below the poverty line. This report is pure junk. Helping these people are more important than some pure junk “socially networked ranked list.”

Mashable also welcomes people to “See how your city ranks, and feel free to trash-talk those other lesser bergs in the comments.” This phrase infuriates me. So cities with more people living below the poverty line are “lesser bergs.”
