Once again proving the top 80% of posters on WW are completely clueless as to what social media even is. If you think you know SEO don't you even look at your server logs?
- Changing and incorporating social media may be the way to go. Personally I see it as either a fad, or undefined (don't know where its going, but it's not there yet) and wouldn't chase it because when social media becomes irrelevant, then the site becomes irrelevant. But I don't have a good handle on it.
- Changing but not incorporating social media. Personally I like the idea of a more updated forum with more features plus some ads, a directory, classifieds. Let me rephrase that - quit screwing around with social media because it does nothing - focus on stuff that matters to us from a business perspective. give me more resources
Social media is a fad? Do you still believe that Google is a fad? No way, you call them a leader in the Internet world, you call them the leading search engine. Well WAKE UP and smell the coffee...
Facebook passes Google as the #1 site visited in the US in March 2010: [weblogs.hitwise.com...]
Fad? <rolls eyes> Please... this is just absurd. Social media isn't irrelevant. This discussion board is social media. Social media is just communication.
Is the telephone a fad? YES, because there is a better solution that does the same thing and MORE, it WAS called a cellphone, now it's a Smartphone.
Quit screwing around with social media because it does nothing?
Yeah, you're right. It only drives users, you know the humans with beating hearts that forums needs to survive! It is nothing but a pipeline diversion to add creeks and rivers of traffic INTO WW. No they won't all be muppets. They're are people just as intelligent in social media as there are here at WW.
Seriously? Hearing this continued rehashed mindless babble is just proving to me why Brett's email brought so many people back to the site.
They saw hope, sniffed change, got excited (I sure did) but the "Elite" Members are asleep at the wheel pounding away at their superior code. I'm sure most of these elite guys still have an early model Motorola Razor... better yet, you most likely have the Jitterbug because you miss your precious rotary dial. Give me a break. I'll leave now and let you continue your mainframe code in COBOL.
