Anyone who has read my past blog know I am a big, no huge, champion of social media, but also one of privacy and ethics. That I rail against Facebook for it’s weaselly treatment of its users and how they try so hard to exploit them for monetary gain, vs investing in them and charging them for use of a great network. I have also explained the horrible business model they have, and lastly the fact that another network will arise that takes them down eventually.
So I ask you. What if tomorrow everyone jumped ship to a private network that excluded brands? No fan pages. Nothing public. Every comment, photo etc is private within a network that is closed to even Google and Bing searches?
What would Brands do? Would it affect Brands in any way in terms of sales, customers etc? What would happen to Agencies that only do Social, and Community Building? What about all the Journalists? If Facebook was gone tomorrow what would you do? Not personally, I mean for Business. You? You just join the new network and get comfy with your friends and family again.
I have my thoughts I want yours.
