Love +Craig Fifield's take.
 
Where's the best place to buy Twitter followers?
Are you a social media purist or a realist?

I watched the stupidity unfold that my old friend +Tamar Weinberg references in her post and I'm sad to say, it's becoming so common, I wasn't very surprised.

The problem is that purists think that purism is the only way to go and that their opinion  supersedes... well, just about anything... especially rational discussion.

I encourage you to read how Tamar posed her question, then read the replies, then realize that on top of sharing unsolicited opinions repeatedly, an entire community of marketing professionals never even considered answering her question because they were too aghast at the thought of what she was asking.

And, like it or not, what she was asking was a legitimate marketing question.

For the record:

Buying Twitter followers is against TOS, but it's not illegal, and whether it is unethical or not is a matter of opinion. In most cases a real professional wouldn't recommend the practice, but that doesn't mean it isn't a tactic that works and can be useful assuming you understand the risks.

Ten years ago, social media marketing did not exist. There were online communities. People participated on those communities. It became possible, all of the sudden, for marketers to participate wit...

So apparently Mute on G+ doesn't work. 

I muted a guy on July 25.

I got an email from him today.

G+ doesn't want me to mute him again, because "You've already muted XXXX." 

I think it's time to disable G+ notifications, since I don't use G+ anyway. Folks, sorry, if you want/need me for something, you should know how to contact me.

That time when you invited your next door neighbor's kids to your kids' birthday party, only to have her RSVP and say no, and only to see that at the same time as the party, the kids are playing in the backyard as they do every single weekend. #usedtobeaconvenientfrienduntilistooduptobeingused

Really +CloudFlare ? Why are your IP addresses all part of these spammy outreach attempts? 
3 of the 4 emails I got came from these IPs:
108.162.208.145
108.162.223.23
108.162.208.126
See https://plus.google.com/118122556596388698587/posts/D8qir5Gd9FP for more context.

Latest image is here. IP is intact this time.

Seems CloudFlare is the new Tor. :( So disappointing.

+Joshua Pack right, I didn't have mod_cloudflare at all and was getting IPs that were both CloudFlares and that weren't. And that's strange.

But the hiding stuff is not great, as this lets lawbreakers be lawbreakers. :( Thanks for the URL!

We grew our SaaS startup from $30,000 to $100,000 in monthly revenue in 14 months. Here’s what we learned along the way.

Facebook Page Managers: Am I the only one who gets errors like this when someone has commented on a photo or link that was shared by the Facebook Page? It's been happening for about a month now. When I edit the URL, I remove the &mid=XXX line and the problem goes away. So basically, Facebook has created some weird variable that doesn't seem to work when you click on it. Why is this taking so long for FB to fix?! Surely it doens't only affect me, does it?

+Chuck Falzone weird. Different issue then, but maybe the same in that it's an &mid= variable thing.

I got the most strange email late Friday night from a guy who clearly only wanted to make a sale from me, though I wasn't a decision maker. Summary below. It's almost embarrassing to read.

Dean Devon [yup, that's his name]: I was browsing LinkedIn and found your profile. It's so ironic because a guy named Vic contacted me about a role from your company this week!!! Want to learn more about my company?
Me: Who is this Vic guy and what company are you contacting me regarding?
Dean: Sorry, I spelled his name wrong. It's Vic [lastname].
Me: And again, who is this Vic guy? What company is he recruiting for? We're not hiring.
Dean: Actually, I just wanted to speak to you about what you're doing at your company from an IT infrastructure perspective.
Me: So are you telling me this Vic thing was a ruse?
Dean: Yes, I swear it happened! And I'm not a slimeball in sales, I promise! I don't lie!
Me: Curious: did you read my LinkedIn profile? I have quite a few jobs so I don't know what company Vic contacted you about. On that note, what company are you assuming I even have any IT decision making authority?
Dean: I wasn't assuming anything, I was just networking! The company is Pixability. 
Me: You haven't looked at my LinkedIn profile then. I've never heard of Pixability before.

Sheesh, are people that desperate to lie in order to get themselves in the door?!

+Tad Donaghe I'm actually thinking they're legit people desperate for the attention. I get a lot of these among the publications I work with; they don't come all at once. Some start at 9am and then I get another written the same way from the same exact guy at 11am. These are stupid people who really want to guest write. And for what? Google is penalizing morons like them. They're also living under a rock.

I like the internets.
Introduction
The views expressed on my account are mine alone and not those of my employers.

I live and breathe in real time. If you know me, you know I believe it, which is why I started Real Time Email. I have this thing for marketing and social media too. I like strategy games and Indie music.

I'm the author of The New Community Rules: Marketing on the Social Web, a book that was published by O'Reilly Media. I've also worked behind the scenes at Mashable as the Global Advertising Director, a role I took more seriously than sliced bread. And for the right quality of bread, I take that very seriously. I am a foodie too, after all.

These days, I'm doing a lot of awesome things for a lot of awesome people:
I sell a social product I am crazy about.
I sell a retail e-commerce marketing solution that is amazing.
I run global operations for a visitor management system.
I analyze social media data for Converseon, a social agency.
I run community for a great ad technology.
I run the happiness department of CLK.IM, the URL shortener that pays you to share shortened URLs.
I am market an amazing social gifting platform. 
I am a community manager for domain name registrar Namecheap.com. 
And I am the Chief Strategy Officer of Small Business Trends.
I take those roles pretty seriously too.

I currently reside near NYC with the best husband and two awesome children (one of each).
