Great article. I find creating media partnerships offer exponential returns at a fraction of the cost. Great for SMEs.

Are you an acronymphomaniac?
Thanks Bob. True indeed but 'abbreviomaniac' doesn't have quite the same ring to it. And not fair, made-up abbreviations don't count.

Social media vs email: Guess who wins?
Excellent article Scott. You are basically saying what most people are afraid to say. The stats don't lie, but people and businesses are often forced to ride a wave they don't need to even when it's clear there are no results.

Your article is reminiscent of the Y2K bug that drove the entire world insane about nothing and made a lot of people money that they didn't earn. In my view, it's the "cool effect" of being on the bandwagon regardless of knowing better.

The thing with technology is that it has to constantly show evolution even when there isn't necessarily any....Windows Vista comes to mind, and more recently, Windows 8. As you correctly pointed out, ICQ and mIRC are the godfathers of social media. I don't have the stats, but what I can say is that these apps were extremely busy and chatrooms were big back in the 90s. They were, as now, more important for social networking rather than business networking. ICQ launched a corporate version of their software, which died in beta mode, but actually worked.

In the end, email has stood the test of time in business. I will acknowledge that a lot of money has been invested by business and governments in the social media frenzy. Who wants to look foolish and pull out now, even if it cuts the losses? You look and sound too retro otherwise.

Great article Scott, very frank, but you are likely to have rubbed a few people up the wrong way!

Strictly speaking, they're not acronyms at all; they're merely abbreviations. MYTDI?

Where do all the writers go?
Hi Marion

I'm delighted (if a little frightened) to have come across this article. This is exactly what I'm going through right now as I attempt to re-start a freelance writing career after taking a break for a couple of years to do other things that didn't involve sitting in front of a computer all day. Well, here I am doing it again. 'Working' from 8am, only 90% is technically not working - it's trying to find work. On the one hand I'm glad I'm not alone; I was beginning to think there was something wrong with me. On the other hand, it’s a little scary to consider the possibility that I might be wasting my time...

Sbu 'slips up' again
...Palesa: you're correct. Even him saying he was extremely disappointed at Forbes saying the cover was fake was also disappointing.

If he continues like this Sbu will destroy himself. Him saying he does not conform to the means he can or will do anything for money. He must be careful he may find himself selling drugs.

Portable Event Advertising Bin
Nowadays people are always looking for new and fresh ideas that can provide even more convenience to them. In this case, this portable event bin is one of many very flexible storage solutions for event organisers to tweak according to their needs. They can design their own artwork, choose the fabric, and carry it around to different events of theirs. I think with flexibility, a product can be high in demand.

Sbu 'slips up' again
This goes to show that no matter how influential one may be, no one is above the law. Sbusiso Leope is an incredible business man and it's very disappointing to read about the poor decisions he has made and sadly, this controversy might hinder the success of his new business venture, MoFaya.
