The Social Media Echo Chamber Isn’t Really Important

This is really just a preview for a coming post in which we’ll talk about the myth of the social media echo chamber.

    Sort of like telling someone not to breathe when you tell them not to express themselves. I was a silent child. It was all in my head unexpressed. A lot of people are like that. It’s funny that the same message or story can be told by millions, but I will only connect with a few, so those few had better be talking!
    Thanks, Jack!

      How is my favorite Olympian? Ok, I have to be honest you are the only one that I know, but a favorite is a favorite. 😉

      Here is to passion and personality!

    Who was giving you support in the background; Fido?

    I have’t thought of it like that but your comparison to Time & Newsweek makes sense. Some people will praise and some will disappear. I used to wonder why and used to think it was because I didn’t have an elevated enough status, which might or might not come into play; but ultimately you can’t be all things to all people. That’s just the way it is….

    I will be looking for your post………

      Hi Bill,

      No sarcasm or silliness here. People respond to different things. I am sure you see it in your office. Some people like the person that approaches them with a soft sell and others need someone to come tell them what to do.

      It is not always substance that dictates how people respond.
