Enjoy this very interesting video on communication and technology. It’s amazing just how much we don’t know. With technology we find out just how different the world out side our immediate surroundings are. With technology, you can go anywhere, but thread softly, as communication is the key.
After all, Google is coming out with their own cell phone designed by HTC. It was reported several years ago that Android was going to be Google’s free cell phone to the masses. There would have been no monthly charges, no data fees as the free service would be supported targeted ads served up to users. The G1 was suppose to be that cell phone, but Google quickly refuted those claims saying that they weren’t making a cell phone, but they were making an open source Linux software that would be available for all cell phone makers.
Tiger Woods was the untouchable golden boy of golf. While some politicians may be off limits for obvious reasons, we now see that celebrities aren’t, after witnessing the media’s character assassination blitz against the worlds #1 Athlete.
In yesteryear, such stars as Michael Jordan and politicians as John F. Kennedy enjoyed the media’s lack of thorough reporting when an incident would negatively affect their image. Not to say Jordan was out there doing the same thing Tiger Woods was, but stuff like punching his teammate in the face, his addiction to gambling, were not thoroughly reported, and probably hardly investigated. In a capitalistic country, this is somewhat understandable when you’re a breathing, walking, and living product known in many living rooms across the country.
Is it a bird, is it a plane? No, its Michael Jordan. Maybe, maybe not. It turns out, social media does work, even when the person using it is straight up lying.
When Michael Jordan gave his Hall of Fame speech he mentioned that Bryon Russel motivated him to come back. He also mentioned he didn’t push off of Bryon Russel when the Bulls beat the Jazz in the NBA Finals in 1998 (He did push off). The two had unsettled business.
I remember when the Dallas Mavericks were the doormat to the NBA. They were horrible, their uniforms sucked, and their players, well, I don’t remember who played for them. The only notable player that I can remember is Derrick Harper. Such records as 11-71, 13-69, they were far from stellar. Then along came Mark Cuban. He made them stellar.
After Mark Cuban took over the Mavericks in 2000, the Mavericks have made the playoffs 9 out of 10 times (very impressive). The Dallas Mavericks are champions for having turned around their team so quickly. There’s no doubt that they should have been the 2006 NBA Champions. They would have been champions if it weren’t for some ludicrous referring. Those refs were possibly working for the same people that Tim donaghy used to work for.
Web Jumpers are going from website to website in a matter of seconds everyday on the Internet Highway, that’s why giving them less is often more.
This concept can be seen in action when reading articles on major news sites, Search Engine results, Google generic homepage, Twitter Tweets, Facebook, Youtube Videos, RSS Feeds, Banners, etc. People tend to glance and skim over information on the Internet, instead of sticking around to read a web page completely. They tend to favor the type of content you’d see on the back of a microwavable product, instead of a long recipe. It’s fast food in contrast to a fine cuisine. They want it quickly, they want it now, and when they find it, they want it easy, if not, they’ll jump to the next website.
Although I’m no dating coach, love doctor, relationship expert, or a big dater for that matter, I’m usually giving advice to my friends about dating and who to date and who to run from. If you were wondering why there’s a page dedicated to the subject matter of relationship on intentcontent.com, there’s your answer, plus I had to give my disclaimer.
For those who are still skeptical about social media, well, the vatican has a myspace page. Yes, I wrote that right, and you read it right. Presently, social media is reminiscent to the time when having a website was not mainstream. Today, every mom and pop store has a website, in fact, a business without web presence is doing themselves and their customers a huge disservice.
Does it matter? Ask most webmasters, web marketers, sales team, upper management if they’d rather have the same 1,000 visitors come back every month or 100,000 unique visitors every month and they’d say 100,000 without the blink of an eye, or even a second of thought. Who wouldn’t? I wouldn’t.
