I guess they want to fool us. “Hey! This blog post could have been written yesterday… …or, 3 years ago!” They don’t want us to look at the post date and immediately leave for more current information.
Why should you care? Why do I care?
I care because, if I want to know how to do something that’s a little bit technical, say on my Facebook company page, it matters to me if the information is current. A Facebook how-to written 3 years ago could be completely obsolete today, because Facebook has made a lot of changes.
So come on, B2B marketers! How about a little transparency? Show us the date! If we use the information we find on your blog post and then find out that it is outdated anyway, you’ve already wasted our time and lost our trust.
