Listen: Pamela Hughes, Google, Sydney discussed on Bruce St. James and Pamela Hughes
"News on ninety two three FM. Get some perspective Bruce St James and Pamela Hughes We've gotten, conditioned as people now that you kinda rate, everything apps are always, asking, me, to you like this output you. Like to rate us you go to. Restaurants yelp Facebook Google wants you. To rate these you can do a one to five you. Can write something about it so the idea, that we rate everything is not necessarily unusual. If, you use ride sharing services like Uber it asks you? To. Rate your ride afterwards yeah, but did you know that your. Drivers also rating you okay so I heard about I. But I thought it was secret the drivers gave you on the one to five scale now. You can see it and how I. Became aware of this is I, read this article we gotta go. Down under for this when we, gotta go to Sydney we meet care Carrozza, journalist Yuzu she wrote this piece that says. I like to think of a nice person but my, Uber rating tells a different, story, so, she, talks about how She hands out five star, ratings to her driver's left and? Right right me something really terrible for her to dock, a driver and. So. When she was able to find out what her rating was she was shocked to find out you, can do so right now if you go, to your Uber app, okay, you, load it and then on the. Top left hand side you're going to. See these three little lines you. Click on that and it brings up your account your name. Will be up at the top and then, you'll have a rating below it her rating. Four, point two three stars four point two three stars out? Of. Five it's not so bad, I mean how often do you. Take Uber care okay great think it was so bad either until she started talking to friends and family members and colleagues defined out everybody had like. A four point eight or higher so are we setting the threshold at, four point I just want to. Know before we get into the, discussion what is the threshold of good she, has it at."
