The Many Faces of the Facebook Like Button

Have you liked a post today?I have always studied the human condition since I was a young lad, trying to figure out why people did what they did. People can be strange creatures indeed, and sometimes just weird, but my conclusion was what drives the human condition more than most things about us is the need for self-expression, ergo la facebook. Facebook has become the most popular single website on the search engines, and one of the best outlets to waste my time. I can sit, watch tv, talk on the phone, build websites, and at the same time, get validated that “I just ate a nice bowl of pinto beans”.

One of the features of the facebook website that we’re all familiar with is the “Like” button. The like button is a little benign link that gives us all that small orgasm of “hey, I am somebody”, and makes me feel important that “I just got a coffee at Starbucks!”, or “Whoopie made a LOL on The View”. Taking a closer look at the facebook like button, I can see many facets to why I think people click on that little bitty damn thing, and the results are interesting if not revealing.

5 People that Will Make Your Business Fail

Five People to Wreck your CompanyDuring my travels, I have seen many start-ups for organizations. The best are those that all in the group have the same vision and have a clear path to the goal, but during a start up, often a path is unclear.  When an unclear path happens, “gaps” are filled with not so great things. Here are a few types of those personalities that can rear their ugly head:

The Dreamer– It reminds me of when I was young and smoking pot with friends, and coming up with an idea. “Yeah man, and then we can…”. As you can imagine, no call to action with any of these “brilliant” ideas, and the dreamer loves to spend hours expanding on anything that gets everyone’s attention, Continue reading

The Trololo Video and the Story Behind It.

One of the best youtube videosOne of the best Youtube videos is Trololo. The video has spead like wildfire across the internet for a while but everyone is now posting what some consider almost a parody of performers during the 60’s classic, the  Lawrence Welk show.  To current day internet users, Edward Kril’s hairstyle seems odd and strange as do his facial expressions and gestures.  The ironic thing is that the performance was real, but the words were intentionally removed because the Soviet Censors blocked the content of the song considering it too racy Continue reading

Coffeecup Software – Web Development? It’s not just a breakfast drink(new designers) anymore.

Web Professionals Use Professional SoftwareThis is my story about one web design company I have grown to respect and appreciate over the years.

I didn’t know any HTML or Search Engine Optimization. A friend of mine found Coffeecup. I would go to their forums and ask what I thought was silly questions about web design, but folks like Adam and Inger never belittled me and everyone was always supportive. Continue reading

How do you choose a product to promote on the internet?

Promote your internet products carefullyDon’t mean to be a bigger buzz kill than Buzz Killington, but let me first say, if you believe any of the hype on making riches quick, you’re going down the wrong path. If anyone who sold Internet Marketing products or methods and is making money, in most cases will NOT share it->unless that niche has lost it’s revenue potential.

When looking at a company to promote, these are the factors I look for:

  • 1- Are they a stable company with a track record?(Always Google and research)
  • 2- Do they seem honest(yes, sometimes they don’t pay)? Continue reading
