Michael Jackson CRASHES Internet



~~~

Social Networking has perhaps, come of age…

CNN has an interesting article by a British fellow CNN Link HERE (http:// www.cnn.com /2009/TECH/06/26 /michael.jackson.internet/)

The article goes into detail about how the Internet practically crashed as the news of Michael Jackson’s passing traversed the globe via Social Networkers. Which is to be expected upon such an event, no doubt… The writer also mentioned how things come in threes but perhaps not (always wondered about that), and how false Internet rumors can spread like wildfire.

An aside: TMZ first broke the story of Michael Jackson’s passing (sad sad sad, love him) and the major news organizations and websites missed the cues waiting for “official” word. TMZ may become “Official Word.” TMZ is a major example of all that’s done right to collect and control the spread of information. Do they even use social networking? In their case, they just have a super-being team of go getters first to get the lead and story. Totally CONTENT DRIVEN. Right? Anyway…

This article was expressing how the new News dynamic runs high octane on the Web. How one monumental story can bring everything crashing down to a mere crawl. And, in my eyes, how the Internet and Social Networking are basically becoming the new communique “mail, television and telephone” of choice.

The world turns, the world changes… we adapt. Yes, so it is, but we all sort of knew that, right? I mean, if you’re not online, you’re missing out on… what? Business?

Oh yes, lots of business it’s true. And, we ALL want to share pictures and talk to our friends, keeping in touch. The Internet just makes it very easy and convenient, push button, and instantaneous.

What’s not to love?

Now, as the marketers turn to social networking as the Hawking Modality of Choice, what will happen with their efforts?

Every time they try to monetize, capitalize and profit from the huge numbers of networkers they hit a few little roadblocks.

Undoubtedly marketers are VERY very smart. They will overcome. I think.

Meanwhile, am seeking solace and aloneness and non-tech. Like growing a plant or something!

  2. According to this post, i see that social networking is becoming a commodity. A money thing, promotion thing, sales tool, monetizing thing, capitalization tool.

    Ugh… that makes me sad. When Facebook added ads, they looked like non ad links. That was clever, until i clicked on them.

    Am getting so sick of being sold to – but buying selling makes the world go round i know.

    That STILL doesn’t make it more endurable.

    If Twitter ads ads, don’t think will like it as much.

    All these ads make me think am just a sponge everyone’s trying to squeeze.

    i hate that… but again, like i said in my previous comment on another topic, what do i know?

    And furthermore, i’m just a tiny nothing in the great ocean of online sochers and consumers. Just a little speck of nothing.

    That’s what all this advertising makes me feel like! :O

    The Internet is getting crazy overwhelming, and i cut my teeth on it. Once it was fun, and now it’s just another telly. Interactive telly. Cool, i guess!

    Can’t wait till everything’s 3D virtual reality, we sit around fuzzy and transparent and talk, do wierd stuff…

    eww. mebbe not. !
