The GSME: Back in Time

On March 14th I decided, after a fair amount of consideration, to sign up for Twitter's Promote Mode beta. I've spoken about this in previous GSME articles, that it could be a great idea for someone like me in order to advertise myself without having to worry about micromanaging a bunch of stuff through often … Continue reading The GSME: Back in Time

#GSME18 :: Forget You

I did wonder at the end of last year whether Twitter would have a relevance for me in 2018. As it transpires, there's more than ever to discuss in the world of Social media.  https://twitter.com/Rich_Harris/status/957304681000251393 It's rather satisfying to see that the Real World [TM] is finally catching up with a truth many hardcore Twitter … Continue reading #GSME18 :: Forget You

GSME #26 :: End Game

The Great Social Media Experiment is taking a rest until December. There are a number of reasons: the most significant one remains the most important.

This is what happens when you systematically remove the elements that exist within Social media whose sole purpose … Continue reading GSME #23 :: Big Log

GSME #22 :: Too Much

Apologies, it's been a few weeks, and I've not been giving Social media the attention it once had, at least in terms of numbers. There's a couple of reasons for this, and it is probably not a bad idea at this point to break those issues down. After what was eight months of pretty much … Continue reading GSME #22 :: Too Much

GSME #21 :: Secret

Today's story is about how a portion of the Internet really is a secret society, run by a select few individuals who know the rules for success. If you choose to enter their world, you might become 'rich' beyond your wildest dreams. The problem is, that success grants no guarantee that you'll survive outside Cyberspace. … Continue reading GSME #21 :: Secret
