I’m struggling a bit to find the right balance with public vs private these days. I’m a performer and leader and have always been comfortable in the public spotlight but I’m also concerned about responsibly setting an example.
FB is a vast echo chamber which makes money with me as the product.
Twitter is an epically vast rant platform. Again the money flows using ME as the product.
1x1 messaging device tools are awesome but don’t easily allow me to see what my friends and acquaintances just think about things.
There are niche group tools but so far adoption is anemic and the old rule still applies. Value of the network is directly correlated to number of nodes.
I’ve gone Public on FB as part of a social test of sorts. I despise the regulatory bots and surveillance censorship there but I will try to use it as a front door to promote my opinion platform and maintain my occasional links to a wide group of interested followers. I have no real desire to be famous or popular but I would love to be able to monetize my messaging and maintain connections “someday” That is how all consultants think. Count me in. Public... might work.
The echo chamber is not useful except as a means to an end.
Intersection of principles and practices...
