Why I Won’t Be Joining Thruzt

Let’s start with what Thruzt is: it’s a social bookmarking site. At first glance, it looks great. The layout is styled after Pinterest, but it’s not just for photos. You can share articles too. In fact, most of the content appears to be shared articles.

Just look at this screenshot, and you’ll see why Thruzt is so appealing:

It looks great, right? So what’s the problem? Here it is, from the Thruzt FAQ:

Let me get this straight: By submitting content to Thruzt, I am dedicating it to the public domain? WHAT?! You have got to be kidding me. There is no way I am dedicating my content to the public domain.

In case you’re not sure just what that means, here is a screenshot of the definition of the Creative Commons Public Domain Zero license:

And that is why I won’t be posting anything on Thruzt. Unless, of course, they change their terms.
