Reasons LM5 Is Way Better Than Ehow

Introduction:In case you haven't heard yet, ehow is implementing some drastic changes as of February 1, 2011. I won't go into all the details here as I am still digesting what I've read in the ehow forums. I suggest you go there immediately to read and interpret things for yourself before the changes take effect on 2/1/2011.

    LM5 Does Not Require Us to Login Thru Facebook

    Ehow will be requiring us to login thru our facebook accounts. WHAT? What if I don't have a facebook you ask? Well, you better make one quickly if you want to have full use of the ehow site. Does this mean that other ehow users will know my real name and be able to find me on facebook and creep on my family pics, status updates, etc? Ummmm....yes, that's what it sounds like.

    LM5 Provides Us With a Forum

    Ehow will also be shutting down the forums and will expect us to communicate with each other on facebook. Yup, say goodbye to your pen name and family's privacy. They are expecting us to merge our ehow friends with our facebook friends and I can't help but feel weird about that. I adore my ehow friends but do I really want them to see my personal pics and comments made by my real life friends? Not so much.

    The LM5 Support Team Actually Responds to Our Concerns

    The ehow forums were always humming with complaints and concerns that went mostly unanswered. Here at LM5 it's refreshing to see relatively quick responses and answers to our questions. Can it be that LM5 site managers actually appreciate us? Sure seems that way!

  • 04

    LM5 Provides Us With a Profile Page

    Ehow will also be deleting our profile pages. Just think of all the backlinks you've created to your ehow profile page. Gone, bye-bye, see ya! LM5 would never, ever, ever do that to us, right?

    LM5 Gives Us Pretty Accolades

    Ehow never gave us such pretty awards and accolades to dress up our profile pages. This alone should prove that LM5 is way better than ehow. Bribe us with fancy graphics of jewels for now and the monetary rewards will come later.




Final Thoughts

I guess the big question is "to facebook" or "not to facebook" when it comes to ehow. What do you think? Are you ready and willing to merge your facebook friends with your ehow friends? LM5 would never force us to do this, right?

    Ehow just announced they are ending the WCP as of 5/5/2011. If you haven't received an email about this, log in to your ehow account to see if they made you an offer to buy your articles.

    Yes, and I love my pretty accolades. I am trying really, super hard to get the Featured Member accolade in my first two weeks here! :D Please, stand back everyone... Get out of my way... H5!

    Change is inevitable, I like LM5 and think it has nice potential, but eHow's international rank is 110 and LM5's international rank is 79,173 (there are over 300 million websites & growing) LM5 is new, & growing .. my eHow pay for the month of Jan will exceed $600 so for ME to speak ill about eHow would be tantamount to "biting the hand that feeds me" .. as long as the changes don't affect my residual, I still have to lean toward ehow .. and that's no offense to you, or LM5 ..
