Chapter 11:  Social Media Marketing

(and not strangling a presenter)

“Good morning, you great big, half-crazed, pill-stealing druggy, controlling, murderous rapist,” was my morning greeting.

You might wonder if this was from a cell mate or a sadistic guard. No, I was not in prison, nor have I been – though all possibilities must be considered in a variable and largely random universe, as I will explore later. No, this was my morning wake-up call to get around to drive to Orlando for the required continuing education that all licensed professionals must attend to renew their licenses. The messenger of this wake-up call being none other than our oldest son, Bryce, whom I instructed to wake me for my meeting.

No great respecter of privacy, or personal space, Bryce had a shift through my collected correspondence and found a copy of his mother’s initial filing for an Order of Protection From Abuse (PFA). He found it such an amusing read that he called up his younger sister, Kaylee, who is studying art in Rhode Island. Being true Lynns, they considered the filing on both its factual and artistic merit and had one hellacious laugh. (more…)

    SOCIAL MEDIA CAN KILL MORE THAN YOUR RELATIONSHIP!

    THE AVERAGE AMERICAN WILL SPEND 57% of THEIR WAKING HOURS

     CONSUMING INTERNET AND TELEVISION

    IF YOU ARE UNDER THE AGE OF 25 YOU SPEND 31 HOURS A WEEK ON THE INTERNET

    IF YOU ARE AN AMERICAN YOU ALSO SPEND 33 HOURS A WEEK WATCHING TELEVISION

    That means in one year you LOSE 139 DAYS of Your LIFE in front of your computer and television.

    In politics they say,” If you want a friend in this world, get a dog.” (Harry Truman) Frankly, if you are sitting in front of the television and computer for more than half your day you don’t even have time for the dog; unless you want it to crap in the house.

    SOCIAL MEDIA RELATIONSHIP MATH MAGIC!

    FACEBOOK IS INVOLVED IN 90% OF ALL DIVORCES *

    (For 2010 that would mean it was involved in just over a quarter of a million divorces in the US alone)

    Let’s do some Social Media Math.   EHarmony we are told has the highest number of marriages among Social Media dating sites; on average, 236 a day.    Guess what?   They are bragging that they are representing 2% of all New Marriages in the United States.    Let’s do the math.  236 x 365 = 86,140 eHarmony marriages.

        Let’s round down and say Facebook was only cited in 225,000 divorces in 2010.

        225,000 Facebook divorces -86,140 EHarmony Marriages = 138,860 Net Social Media Divorces

    138,860 Net Social Media Divorces for 2010 (more…)

    Social Media: The Renaissance of Human Ignorance?

    Cusper Lynn

                    Recently, finding myself besieged by journalists with a range of useless questions, which invariably end with the phrase “and how do you feel about that?” I found myself wondering about the internet and human ignorance.   The web and ever expanding communications once promised to push back the limitations of the human intellect and expand the term “intelligence” in ways previously never before conceived of.   Back in those early and heady days of free data access I can well remember perusing libraries collections of ancient text, fragments of all but missing manuscript online and connecting with people worldwide on a broad range of topics.    When that all came to a screeching halt I am not entirely certain.

    It has been speculated that the ever narrowing range of internet experiences the average user finds are part of a conspiracy by government or industry, to limit and commoditize the web’s capacity.    Often advocates of these theories will point to individual countries and sometimes collections of countries whose policies appear to choke off or at least attempt to achieve a strangle hold on the web.

    My personal theory is quite the opposite.   While in the early day of the web, when quality information was readily transferable, and pornography was extremely slow to download, intellect advanced ahead of ignorance.   But with the migration of news media to the web, true and unadulterated ignorance gained its first serious foot hold.    Later, with the advent of social media network systems ignorance entered into a renaissance.
