Brandon - I think Linkedin *can be engaging if the groups that you are a member of have managers and members who help create the environment of discussion vs. self promotion. . . . and love that analogy Katt!
I think what we are seeing is a bunch of folks in denial that G+ has a lot to offer as far as conversation goes. They came, created circles, made fun of it, and have not come back to see the true value. I love this platform, but feel like I am waiting for everyone to get to the party.
Found this interesting :: hivemind :: Scientists at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have found that when just 10% of the population holds an unshakable belief, their belief will always be adopted by the majority of the society. -- thoughts?
See, that's why I get so pissed off at the media for offering opinions designed as news. They are trying to get that 10% and when you combine it with our thirst as Americans for picking a winner, having the right answer, etc etc it really gives a lot of power to media.
