Being A Bully Is Being An Idiot In A Social / Mobile / Connected Time

Being A Bully Is Being An Idiot In A Social / Mobile /  Connected Time | Collaborative Revolution | Scoop.it
I just received an email from a woman who had a bad experience with a photographer in Myrtle Beach, SC and left him a 2 star review. He is now threatening… - Martin W. Smith - Google+
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Two Kinds of Brands / Companies
There are 2 kinds of companies, brands and people these days.

*Those who GET IT.
* Those who don't.

Get it means understanding how butterfly wings flapping in China impacts your brand here and now thanks to the social / mobile web. In this post someone threatens to sue someone who placed a factual review on Google.

The threat immediately makes the person who placed the review correct. As I wrote for @Kelly Hungerford on the Paper.li blog - there are SAFETY tips any company, brand or person needs to be aware of such as don't threaten customers with lawyres when they "damaged" your "pefect review" record  online. 

Want to see some damages? Keep being an idiot. As I noted in the post on G+, the crazy clueless person who threatens their customers starts living in the "red zone".

The online "red zone" is waiting for a mob related tipping point. BTW, nothing creates a tipping point faster than porn, humor and controversy. Once that tipping point is reached any attempt to undo the damage only makes it worse. Any protest simply confirms the opposition.

CONTENT IS A WEAPON now and God help those who forget how powerful a weapon.

G+ The Most Disruptive Social Net: 20 Reasons Why You Should Be Using Google Plus [Infographic]

G+ The Most Disruptive Social Net: 20 Reasons Why You Should Be Using Google Plus [Infographic] | Collaborative Revolution | Scoop.it

Via Gust MEES, Thomas Faltin
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

If you only have time to learn and interact on one social network make it G+. Google Plus is the most disruptive of the social nets. More a suite of powerful tools than a social network, G+ is derided but don't let critics fool you. Great web marketing is, at its core, a contrarian pursuit. When you are in a room and people laugh when something is mentioned, laughing in a way that says they would NEVER use that thing, then that becomes what you want to do :).

G+ is catching up big time for many reasons.  Among these reasons is the Hangout integration.  

 

We just facilitated a remote 1.5 day leadership development session with Hangouts and it was fantastic.  

 

Google is sticking to their strategy and their value is starting to win people over.  I was never a fan and, through valuable features, I am changing my perspective on the suite of offerings.

 

This is a relevant infographic.

Cool example from John of collaborative competition. See my very painfully created How To Become A Power Tweeter analysis (painful becuase I had to do it all by hand).

Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, March 4, 2013 4:31 PM

Why give away a million dollar idea? Why not? I learned this idea from friends, lost it and found it again from other friends this last Saturday. The idea ties browsers (Chrome, IE, whatever) to the Search Engine Results Pages (SERPs) via a simple App that uses schema Google makes available to anyone. 

The net impact of this simple idea is Google becomes your partner in your company's search engine marketing. You get YOUR logo on Google when a "logged in member" is searching. 

Three years ago there was too much "login friction", friction now solved by Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus "create an account with social" APIs. What do you owe me if you use Search Engine Gamification to make millions? Nothing but a donation to cancer research would be nice. 

I also stand ready to help anyone create this tool FREE and bet I can enlist some of my friends too. Why give away a million dollar idea? SOT, Sign of the Times and not worth anything locked up in my head :).
