I have a unique site going up. Call it a streamlined version of Nextag with a better search mechanism, and narrow product focus. Let's take Twitter as example:
1) There are only 2 threads you can partake in: one's you join and one's you start. Right?
2) I assume starting one is a longer time out to productivity, right?
3)So you'd pick a conversation and weasel yourself into it somehow, trying not to offend too many people by dropping your website, right?
[For now let's forget about all the tools for doing that.. automation.. other conveniences for pay, not for pay services peripheral to Twitter, etc.]
4) I'll be honest. I don't care about someone else's lifestyle, really. I'm a marketer. I got stuff I have to sell. I've got business founders that have to see a payout and we all have limited time. It's all about money. Marketing is my passion, not socializing..not asking what u up to, etc. We have many income streams and methods to do it..hardly just social networking. Nevertheless, if it works I'll do it.
Is 1-3 above the general approach? Or am I missing something? And what do you all think about someone with such a mercenary outlook getting engaged in social networking?
