The Yelp Effect

The Yelp Effect: When people behave as if they are experts because someone profiting from that belief tells them so, but they lack the background, wherewithal, or incentives to produce anything except a high volume of content, resulting in an extremely noisy environment in which any objective value is obscured.

As The Dude once said, “Well, that just like, your opinion, man.”
