What Do Triberr & A Drunk Moose Have In Common

What do Triberr and a drunk moose have in common? The answer is nothing other than I happen to use them together in a headline. But because I am a social media guru and master of social media platforms I will provide the connection you now demand.

Let’s start with the story of the drunken moose that got stuck in a tree. I really feel for that moose. I have had a few nights like that. If I had more time and the inclination not to mention a bunch of cash I’d hire Joe Cocker to sing a different version of With A Little Help From My Friends. It would be epic and better than this version:

Alas my dreams of producing the next great viral video starring Joe Cocker singing about a drunk moose who got stuck in a tree are going to have to wait for a new day to come. The smarter readers will stick close to this blog because you never want to miss out on the opportunity to be on the ground floor of something special.

What? Do you really think that a man who blogs about flying clowns and used pumps would always be serious. How many of you have been interviewed by James Lipton or written posts that didn’t win awards but should have like The Problem With Blogging. Very few I am sure.

Moving on to the next topic a number of people have asked me to answer questions about Triberr. Since I am short on time let me say that Triberr is a tool that if used properly can be a very effective way to extend your reach and to meet really interesting people. Use it poorly and it can turn you and your Twitter stream into something you’d rather not be.

I don’t know about you but it has been a long week so your old friend Jack is ready to grab a beer and enjoy some down time. But before I do let me share a quick wrap up of the posts that I published this week:

    Dude that shot of the moose brought on a flash back of my ex husband. who happens to be blind (when he’s drunk). Which is a lot so I don’t know who the heck he paid at the DMV for a license but i look both ways twice when crossing the street.

    I happen to think triberr is wicked if used the right way. it all depends on the chief and who he/she picks to be their tribesman.

      Oy, Vanita he sounds like a heck of a guy. 😉

      I agree with you. The most important part of Triberr is picking the right people to be part of your Tribe. If you do that correctly there is real opportunity.

    I couldn’t resist a drunk moose. My favorite moose story is about a moose that decided to trespass into some people’s yard and to take a break in their kiddie pool. Awesome photo.

    I haven’t used Triberr. Most of the people I’ve met, such as you, Bill, and Nancy, have been via Spin Sucks. I’ve also been able to meet some interesting people through Twitter.

    I am in one tribe. I don’t know if anyone there actually reads my posts. I read theirs. I don’t know if it matters./ I never get my posts “thumbed-up” by anyone on Triberr. I fear it may be too “cliquey” for me. Maybe I just don’t get it.

      @NancyD68 Nancy, I pay very little attention to the karma points. I don’t think that they are used very effectively. I think that it really depends on the people in the tribe and the reasons they are using it.

    Our Social Dads tribe rules! So glad to be a part of it!

    I’ve had mixed results w/ Triberr. I’m in one that is very active and two that it’s letting my automated tweets go out and nothing more; no engagement among the tribe mates. I even saw a tribe mate get kicked out of one for boorish behavior; that was interesting.

    Going to see the Rays tonight play for the wildcard spot nobody wanted; lovely.

    Have a good one.

      @bdorman264 Bill, I understand. There have been moments where I have scratched my head and asked if I am really getting as much out of it as I have put in. It is really a question of the people and as I continue to say, the people make it worthwhile.

      Triberr is how I found you and so many others. Quite a few of the commenters here are here because of Triberr and I am grateful for the introduction to so many good people.

    I LOVE Triberr and OUR Tribe, JB!
