Do we really want a World Wide Web without helpful websites?

As social media encroaches ever further into the structure and fabric of the WWW the fate of the small personal, social and services websites becomes a cause for growing concern. Searching for the more obscure, once the raison d’etre of Google, Bing & Yahoo now returns page after page of advertised items and unrelated promotions marring access to those useful websites originally sought. Facebook & Twitter, Snapchat & Dropbox have much to offer but their fluidity is also their “Achilles heel”, as they do not provide a fixed point around which detailed or particular information can be anchored to aid those searching for specific subject matter. So support your local websites or very soon they may not be there when you really need them.
