I recently uncovered an incident where Burrp seems to have deleted a user review. Nishith, founder of Pune based True Sparrow Systems (team behind SocialMedian – acquired by Xing), wrote a review for a Pune based burger joint, which he tweets was deleted by Burrp.
While I havent seen this as frequently occurring scenario, I am wondering if there are other similar instances that simply go unreported.
Burrp’s Terms of Service do state that they have the right to delete any content, including user posted reviews:
You understand and agree that Burrp may review and delete any Content, entertainment listings, business listings (including business name, address, phone, fax, distance, reviews, rating, reviews) that in the sole judgment of Burrp violates these Terms of Service or which might be offensive, illegal, or that might violate the rights of, harm, or threaten the safety of other users or members of the Burrp Site and/or other website users.
Its unclear why Burrp deleted Nishith’s comment and whether it violated Burrp’s ToS or it was deleted simply for building relationships with the biz – aka, financial gain.
If you have encountered a similar experience, do leave a comment and let me know.
