What do you call SPAM in social media?

If you come to the show, you’ll hear my rant about the new SPAM in social media.  We know what it is.  My question is – what do we call it and what can we do about it?

Oct 29th – Thursday after the show….

I was popping around when I should have been working and saw tidyTWEET – a spam and clutter filter for twitter.  I haven’t checked it out yet.  I’ll do that when I get some time.  But if any of you want to check it and get back to me, all the listeners will appreciate it, I’m sure.

Or let me know of any other spam filters you’ve found for social media.

In the spirit of Doc’s idea that in the VRM world we should be able to put our needs out on the web and have someone find them and fill them, here’s my dream.  I’d love a spam filter that caught all those linked in requests that ask me to recommend people that I barely know, or in some cases, people I know but really don’t want to recommend.  More on that at a later time….

Game Changing

As fresh faced little kids we were all told … “It’s not whether you win or lose, it’s how you play the game.” Then we went out there and found out it really did matter.

More than that, we found out that life wasn’t always fair. You didn’t always get the breaks. Sometimes the game didn’t go your way.

There’s a lot of things in life you can’t change. You can always change the game.

We’re fascinated by people, ideas and events that do just that – change the game.

Join us every Monday night at 5 pm Pacific/8 pm Eastern and prepare to look at business, collaboration and the real time internet in a totally new way.
