Huffington Post Sideboob Channel: Why Don't We Have One?
HuffPo Has a Sideboob Channel: Why Don't We?!
Huffington Post has a channel dedicated to sideboob. Seriously. HuffPo Sideboob. The only thing more surprising is that NowPublic does not (yet) have a sideboob channel. However, we have:
- Shameless Pandering
- Wardrobe Malfunction
- Porn (articles about it, not actual adult content, so fuhgeddaboudit)
- Azz (?!?)
Actually, it's not that surprising. Most modern content management systems will generate a dedicated page once an editor or contributor defines a taxonomy term, aka tag. Your WordPress blog does this, for example.
The more often-used a term, the more content appears on its tag page. Tags can also be summarily deleted.
In HuffPo's case, though, Sideboob has more front-page-lookin' theming than, say, their Punk channel (just to choose one at random).
Buzzfeed makes a big deal about the HuffPo Sideboob channel, but they know as well as we do that the creation of the channel was handled by the site's architecture, and not by some sideboob-obsessed intern.
However, I bet a sideboob-obsessed designer made sure the page was themed...
