A December, 2011 story about Samantha Goldberg trashing Wedding Wire is trending, boosted by an event in New Jersey last week with the United Way. New eWedNewz followers sent the story back up the charts, as more disgruntled vendors say they’re not happy with how Wedding Wire manages its reviews. The ongoing story sent readers back in the archives, getting some up to speed.
Round two for Wedding Wire, as Samantha Goldberg takes up her fight again.
In a statement responding to the coverage, Samantha Goldberg wrote:
“Finally I can now share hundreds of unhappy customers…It’s not opinion, I am not a bitch I am only protecting my friends and those who may not be my friends but don’t deserve this…”
Goldberg told eWedNewz she’s taken up the fight again after being forced to regroup and for personal health reasons. Since the Goldberg trash, Martha Stewart sold their interest in Wedding Wire to a company called Catalyst. Through the winter both sides went to their neutral corners but with last week’s event, the bell may again sounded.
Some objection from less-than open-minded members of the Wedding Water Cooler expressed their concern for dredging up the past. The comments led to some name-calling and usual childish antics in a place that has no rules. The exchange prompted respected wedding analyst, Christine Boulton, founder of the group, to say the following:
“The reason something from the past would suddenly trend has to do with the way his site is set up. eWedNewz runs a plug in called Related posts. At the end of each post the plugin post a list of 4 post that in some way relate to the days post. An algorithm controls it. Now, having said that, just because a post shows up in the “related post” section is not enough to make it trend. What makes it trend is people clicking on it. Consequently, this old post trended because it is still of interest.”
Despite the objections the Wedding Wire story is again exploding. eWedNewz is there to cover the facts.
