I figure its about time I set up the WordPress Jetpack thing and automatically connect to the various social networks. Without having to click an extra button to do the same job.
I was using the EMailit sharing system but that seems to have gotten a tad “bloaty” recently and as the Jetpack service is offered freely with WordPress I figure give it a go and let it connect to all the social networks I am connected too for Pre-Tech.
Today I took a break from Business Plans and Cash Flows to work on that other thing.
Now this blog serves purpose. Telling everyone what I am up to to begin forming that word of mouth. Idea being that people will hopefully share. More or less every post I make goes out over Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Linkedin with that sole purpose in mind. Just get myself out there.
Social Media is now so ingrained into everything Facebook is now getting used as a verb. “I’ll ring you…” is slowly being replaced with “I’ll facebook you…” gives an idea how widespread it really is.
Personally I dislike the idea and concept behind Facebook. Too many people seem willing to show their entire life to just about anyone takes away those few precious moments we have as once they go on Facebook etc they aren’t yours anymore. They belong to everyone in a sense. For some stuff okay but for everything?
It amazes me the amount of people who click Like on just about anything. Those prize draw things for example. Its generally accepted that most of these aren’t prize draws and yet everyone “Shares” their chance to win to something when in reality its doing nothing more than free advertising for the ones hosting the “prize draw”.
Coke Cola have this down to a fine art with their name thing on the side of bottles. Why pay millions for advertising when people will gladly take a picture of their name on the side of a Coke bottle and upload to it to Facebook.
I am possibly having a rant…
I am still trying to finish my Linkedin profile…
