It has to be true. I read it on CNET.
It still amazes me that this type of stuff is a surprise to anyone.
Why do people assume that “social” media is some sort of utopia, when “society” clearly isn’t?
Would you write a 1,500-word magazine piece on the following topic?
Man Attempts to Sell Me Stolen Speakers From Back of Van!
But the worse part about this article is its naïve condescension towards marketers.
It’s not the content that matters apparently, it’s the intent.
If you intend to get Dugg, you’re a “dubious Internet marketer.”
Doesn’t matter how much work you put into the content, or how compelling it is.
I wish someone would have told me this earlier.
P.S. Anyone with a background in media knows that this CNET article is the journalistic equivalent of Digg bait. And it worked.
