I just realized I don't seen (what we once called) hyperlinks much anymore. Oh, you see lots of URL's but linking from a word or phrase doesn't happen on social media sites. Does it?

I miss that. With a little effort you could use the context of the text to clue the reader to where the link would take them.

Oh sure, you still see it on websites, but...


@smays it took 30 years but we succeeded in removing all the hypertext from HTML!

... I think that observation is at the heart of my unhappiness with the state of Apps and Social Media.
