While working on the Blog I am posting for +Bob Hendershot on the Advantages of Google+, I made a stop off at all of the social spaces I am still present to view how things are going.

I noticed that there are a large number of people in those other social streams who are just posting a ton of content and are getting absolutely no response to it.  

What a waste since one of the advantages to Google+ is that even if you do not respond to to this post it still will be found on the Google Search..where as that is not the case with the content posted in the other social spaces.

So why do they bother?  Why are they not on G+?  and the ????? just keep going on.

I know right!!

Did you see yesterday evening when I scolded Arlington about no road crews? We were at TGIFs (girls and I) on S Cooper just S of I 20. I was watching cars come over the bridge sliding because it was icy. So I yelled at the city. I mean the schools closed early, malls, businesses, etc. Not 1 road crew all day long because I was out there. All day. Stuff to do.

Exactly 10 minutes later, the road crews were out in force exactly where I pointed out. So Im obviously posting content that people are paying attention to and Im interacting just as some mentors have taught, ;-)
because they are listening.

Is typing posts in ALL CAPS still considered a social media visual ad that attracts readers?

If so ,it is not working...has never worked.

I am seeing people on LinkedIn use all caps for their Name and Titles they put in the name field of their profiles.  I remember back in the late 90's when LinkedIn came out I went to a seminar on how to effectively gain attention on LinkedIn and one of the 'experts' presenting the workshop said he highly recommended the use of all caps for the person's name and to make sure to include their full tile in the name field.  This kind of thinking is still being carried on today in all social spaces...it really needs to stop.

Did a Pinterest Drive-BY;

Pros: No .gifs
Cons: Photos are way to jammed together...lots of lost soles posting and getting no interaction.

Really can't see why all those Pinners are using G+.

The Ultimate Google+ Fan! Let Me Know How I Can Help!
Introduction

Hi! I'm Scot — nice to meet you!  I'm Director of Operations for SyncLab Media..a video centric digital marketing agency.

I am available to interact with you on G+ just about anytime, but realize, I do have a life and do other things..so Give it a Break if I don't respond immediately..but don't be surprised if I ping you RIGHT BACK..

SORRY!!..My policy has been from the beginning that if you have NO Headshot PHOTO in your avatar: I'll not place you in My Circles and Will Not Interact with you.

If I circled you it more than likely is due to you posting something of interest... or someone you know has influenced me to put you in my network.  

If You circle me I'll ONLY circle you back if you have a Headshot and make a comment on one of my post.  

Yes..I don't play the number game.  I am out for quality, not quantity!

******************************************************

I'm here to share the 35 years of professional and business experience I gained from working in the trenches of the real world corporate America.  

I have been working in the social media and blogging for more than 10 years. I also work with global brands and leaders in the social media sphere every day. I'll share tips and tricks, provide positive inspiration and answer social media questions through the content I create on my blog and Google+.

Let’s get this straight..I am not a Marketing or Sales Director...I am an Operation Manager which means I determine what is to be marketed or sold for businesses...huge difference since I have to know more about the businesses product or services than the marketers or sales people.  

I’m the person who listens to the client as well as the consumer..most of the time more to the consumer since if they are not interested in what the client is selling I need to know that as well.

I am currently the Director of Operations for SyncLab Media, a Videocentric Digital Marketing Agency which I find totally fascinating with what we can do in the state of the art video and audio recording studio we built.

We work with people to enhance their online professionalism and image.  That is why you will never see me promoting or sharing a .gif or autoawesome..they are killers of any attempt to portray a serious or professional image online.

I pass on information I receive from Google concerning Google+ and I support the direction Google is taking G+.

To me, It's All About Being Social

Like I said, I have been studying social networking and media since before social media was social media.  I know how it works, and how it does not work.

Read more on www.scotduke.com

I'd fit great in these circles:

  • Video Marketing/Operations

  • Social media

  • Google+ Evangelist

  • Writers or bloggers

  • Positive people :)

  • Geek/Tech tools

  • Golf

  • Business Insider

I am on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest and over 25 other social spaces, but ONLY am active on Google+..which is why I know so much about how G+ works and how it does not.

I am the Co-Founder of the Dallas Plussers Network, a G+ users group formed to help people in Dallas gain a better understanding of G+ and socialize with others who are just as enthusiastic as they are about finally finding a social space worth being active in.

Tonight was the second time this month I have watched a movie and ate at this Studio Movie Grill. Both times the food was cold when I got it. Tasted OK, but I am not a fan of a COLD Hamburger or Pizza. Seems there were some other problems going on in other theaters both evenings since when I asked to speak to the manager to let him know the food was cold I was told both times....You'll have to Get In Line. I'll probably go back but when I order I will insist on my food be brought to me HOT!

Golf course is in fair shape for a very dry Texas summer. Looked like the course superintendent may had been trying to cut costs by not trimming the edges of the fairway and the limbs overhanging the cart paths. It was obvious they had a nature area all around the course. However having thick, thick undergrowth right up to the edge of the course made each hole look Woolly. The price was right for a weekday twilight fee. The greens were interesting. Other than that it was just OK Didn't get to go into the clubhouse due to their being a large tournament being held. Not an overwhelming experience.

Great FOOD! Out of the way location but was worth the Groupon! I'll check it out again if I am back up that way. Ample pour on the Wine Glass as well. The Chicken was awesome and the Pork was very tender and tasty.

The rooms are great, the price is OK, the amenities are above average and the breakfast...well..it's an express breakfast...could work on the omelets. The BIG BIG BIG negative, was the tobacco smoke smell. Seems they have problems with people obeying the No Smoking in the room policy. That was a huge turn off for me not just for the smell of the cigarette smoke in the room and hallways, but with the chemicals they attempted to cover the smell up with. Maybe they will get this under control by the next time I am in Glen Rose for Golf.
