Is there no escape?by Arthur Webster Just plain honesty
There was a time that social networks were just that.
They were places to go to discuss with like-minded or totally contrary people the subjects of the day. People, in other words, would socialise!
I don't know how long you have been in such networks as this, but I wonder if you, like me, miss the fact that very little socialising goes on. Everything seems to be aimed at using the latest gormless guru ideas on using these networks to 'promote' your business. In reality, what this means is slam-dunking adverts into the mail boxes of all those in your network.
JUST HOW SAD IS THAT?
Imagine going to a party at a friends house and all of the 200 people there did nothing but expound upon their latest, greatest, can't fail to make a million by lunch time tomorrow plan. (Oh, and you couldn't lend me the taxi fare home could you? I didn't bring my wallet and I have had a couple of drinks.)
The internet has become, in the rarified reaches inhabited by those who love to call themselves 'Internet Marketers', something akin to a canibals hors douvres tray. The unwary will be gobbled up by the latest team schemes and carried along on a wave of artificially generated euphoria.
There are very few social sites that I have retained my membership in. It seems that everywhere I go I see the same faces, read the same rubbish, fall across the same vain self agrandisement of people not fit to breathe the same air as my dogs.
As long as Internet Marketers continue to promote scams, programmes, matrices and any other fly-blown scheme doomed to collapse within months because they have this naÃ¯ve idea that this is the way to go.... As long as they scratch around in the dirt like demented chickens looking for the last wood louse.... As long as they actually believe that it is, somehow, OK to rip off the people they claim to know as friends.... As long as they continue to believe in a cyber world where the rules of commerce are suspended.... they will continue to, in the main part, be programme hoppers and losers. BIG TIME LOSERS!
99% of internet users are not marketers.
Over 40% of people on line at any one time are looking for something to buy.
Aren't THEY the people we should be looking at and, within our social network, discussing ways to attract?
Or am I really stupid thinking that there is no future in a vomitous, triple decked, stroked to death, overflowing, strangulated matrix?
