New Gmail Tabs – Friend or Foe?
Google has decided they want to “help us” organize our email with a new filtering system using four tabs they have incorporated into Gmail. The intent of the new tabs is to be helpful, to ensure that you only get your “important” messages in your main inbox. All other messages will get sorted into the other tabs…Promotions, Updates, Social, and Forums.
This may sound like a good idea but it has some features that should cause you to start asking questions.
Who is deciding which of your emails are most important?
How is that decision being made?”
