Social Spitballing

Larry Brauner is the Hudson Valley King of Social Networking Strategies

Americans spend nearly a quarter of their time online on social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube – there are others, like the scrappy Tumblr, but they have a long hill to climb to catch up to the big three. Twitter is celebrating its 20 billionth tweet, and not long ago Facebook notched up its 500 millionth member.

Will adding your twitter feed to your blog or website increase your PR? Ann Liu investigates... ...and here's what Ann thinks of bloggers, blogs and blogging:
" Most blogs are small potatoes. The vast majority are online journals where teenagers talk about their lives to a readership made up of their closest friends. A growing minority, however, are businesses in and of themselves. They balance costs and income; they purposely seek out content providers, advertisers, and paying customers. They make a profit. They are, in fact, blog empires, ruling over a reader-defined section of the blogosphere as the go-to site for millions who come to get the news, buy promotional merchandise, and donate money to keep their favorite bloggers fed and happy. That's where you come in."
Fast forward to the bottom of Ann's article - "Rant blogs are generally 'brain dump' blogs, where the blogger simply writes what's on her mind, tells about her day, or whines about her boss..." HEY, THAT SOUNDS LIKE TWITTER! (Return to top of post and begin reading again. You'll be chasing your tail for days with these articles!)

Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
