2012 – The year that social media became exhausted.

But that’s the problem. If social media is ‘the conversation’ then the platforms they are on can’t be.

Facebook is not social media as much as a cave wall is not social media – the painting on it is. Platforms cannot be social media, digital cannot be social media, they can only be a place where social media, at some level, takes place.

Therefore, if 2012 is the year that we become exhausted with social media (platforms), and i hope we do, then what is it people have been doing?

Having a conversation methinks – it just happens that it was on something like facebook or twitter.

But I think facebook and twitter were too ‘wide’ a platform, i.e not niche enough. We know humans herd, and we know humans subscribe to specific uniforms such as golfing or mountain biking. Therefore, what we need are ‘dashboards’ that allow that subscription to be fulfilled.

No different to a car really, to some the protective bubble that is a car gives rise to abuse – something that most people would not even think about doing unless they were in their ‘protective bubble’.

The difference is the ‘delusional’ behaviour of the instigator. The self proclaimed gatherer of the truth. But the reality being that they’re only convincing themselves that they’re right at the cost of their own integrity and the environment around them.

The reality being that in the main no one has made a mistake. They just thought that someone had and, therefore, convinced themselves that it was so.

Help, I’m surrounded by morons.

I am, and this is me venting spleen. I have a property forum called property tribes, it’s a small forum as far as the amount of members but the busiest property forum in the UK as far as alexa is concerned. The trouble is it’s now become apparent that I can’t post on it. Reason: [...]
