How Participation Trophy Mentality Has Stalled Topnteworkersgroup and MLM: When i started up TNG in 2010, it was mostly all ‘concept’ – I knew what I wanted to do, but had to work through how to do it; along the way, things came together and the 1 mlm system was born; Some people didn’t like the name….
It had MLM in it – and it’s unfortunate that the industry has such a bad reputation; but that’s precisely why I put MLM in the name; b/c I’ve always envisioned TNG as a team that does MLM “the right way” – however, I just have not attracted ‘the right people” into the fold…. Yet.
So with total honesty, most of 2017 has been a MLM Break for me; I’m still ‘in’ companies I was in before; TNG is still sailing the seas; The 1 MLM System is still operational; just needs a few tweaks, and a few more of the right people to board the ship.
The challenge though, is I live in the Participation Trophy Generation; so everyone assumes everyone is equally the same – and that makes things difficult in business. The ‘leaders’ I set things up with, wanted to be leaders too. They didn’t want to follow me, they wanted to Co-lead. All that does, is confuse people, which Austin Rivers recently talked about. You know we cover the correlation of Sports and Business here. Austin Rivers, currently the starting point guard for the Los Angeles Clippers spoke about his former Teammate Chris Paul and current teammate Blake Griffin’s relationship. He said that no one ‘really knew who the leader was’. This led to dysfunction on a team that was supposed to do, much better than they did.
This mindset infects the team, and those who ‘could have’ been integral parts of the network you’re seeking to grow.
People come to you for help; but due to this Participation Trophy Mindset people have; eventually THEY feel they’re just as much an expert as You are – and ignore all the help you provide; only to say you did not help them — rather than admit they didn’t accept the help — same way people are no longer able to accept that their Performance wasn’t good enough for 1st place – but now they get to ‘decide’ that it was, even if it wasn’t.
That’s the world I’m in. I’m thankful that I heard about bitcoin …. who knows where I’d be right now if I was fully depending on MLM.
I love the business model, but the people in the industry – are plagued with society’s lack of evolved ideas; People bring their Employee mindset to the Group; their Individualistic mentality to the Group; and never adopt ‘Group mentality” — they’re literally useless…… and so as 1,000 more MLM’s sprang up this year; they’re all simply recycling the same people over and over; and it’s a shame none of them seem to see what’s happening.
Now Everyone thinks they can do what I did; and make their own teams; build their own sites; teach things the way they wanna teach it; b/c they don’t ‘know’ I’m teaching Old School stuff that’s been around for 40+ years :: they think I made it all up on my own; b/c … participation trophy mindsets are lazy.
They Assume first place, won first place, because of any reason other than first place worked harder than second place did. I can show people the door; but they gotta walk through it…. I can give people that Red Pill; but they gotta accept truth, and not wish they had taken the Blue one after a visit to the Desert of the real; after they come to grips with the reality that their reality isn’t reality.
I’ve had several people come to me, who Used to work with TNG – or more accurately; who Signed up for programs TNG promoted – and they say to me “Al, I just can’t get people to follow me….”
They never wanna hear the reason why; The reason is, in MLM what YOU do duplicates.
You can’t get people to follow you – because you don’t follow ….
There were books you were told to read; that you did not read. There were videos you were told to watch; that you chose not to watch; You decided you heard it all, knew it all, and that you didn’t need to hear anymore – and That Duplicates …..
When YOU talk to people about a program; they don’t look – they don’t listen – they assume – because that’s how you are. They won’t watch videos, b/c You won’t watch videos either; They won’t follow your lead; because You Aren’t Following Your own Sponsor. Your Sponsor hosts a Webinar, you find a reason to miss it; Then wonder why people you Invite to Webinars, find reasons to miss those too – people do what you DO not what you say.
Sometimes, people still won’t do what you do, even when you’re doing it. Yet, you’ll never get anyone to do anything you’re not already doing. I shouldn’t even have to cover this, but the participation trophy mentality, makes people expect success in MLM regardless. People really think, all they have to do is sign up, and ‘get’ others to sign up.
MLM’ers with this participation trophy mindset hop from one company to the next because they think it’s the company. They think it’s their sponsor’s fault, or the founders of the company. These people come to believe if they sell a different product more people will buy from ‘them’. They never change who THEY are though.
The participation trophy mentality, stops a person from working on themselves.
It’s very possible that Bitconnect will go down as the ZeekREwards of the cryptocurrency space. Right now, it’s a very hot program and people are making a lot of money. It’s even starting to gain ‘legitimacy’ as news spread of it’s recent inclusion on a major exchange. But, still too many questions remain about whether or not BitConnect will be able to pay everyone. That was the problem with ZeekRewards, and is always the challenge of ‘actual’ pyramids. They cannot sustain themselves forever.
We’ve been here before – Bitconnect is the Next ZeekRewards
I know there are a lot of people making money with Bitconnect. One of my favorite ‘personalities’ in the Cryptocurrency space being one of them. Unfortunately he seems to feel that people are unsure of the opportunity just because he is involved. I get that, but that isn’t the case here. The problem is that people do make money in scams all the time. Just because a person is making money does not mean it’s legit. That becomes a problem, when the scheme collapses, not during it’s run.
That’s my main concern with the opportunity, and others like it. It reminds me too much of ZeekRewards. When that opportunity got hot in MLM everyone I knew gave up on everything in MLM. I lost several relationships over that one, because the people involved swore I was crazy, or ignorant not to be involved too. Several of them told me, they’d never have to do anything else again, thanks to ZeekRewards. It was a narrow, unfortunate mindset that really reared it’s ugly head when ZeekRewards was shut down by the SEC.
People have an ‘addiction to new’, that we as business owners need to GROW out of.
We cannot afford to be like the rest of mindless society, the consumers who follow ‘trends’. We instead, should be the ones focused on setting trends. This means making sure we, as a team do not fall for the addiction to getting into the latest, or hottest. Instead, we need to align ourselves with opportunities that have stood the tests of time. Below, I go into this conversation, in a series of Conversations on Multiple Streams of Income –
I was eating while filming these ‘thoughts’ – so please ignore that, and pay attention to the message.
Cryptocurrency cannot be shut down by the SEC, so that’s unlikely to happen here. What is likely to happen is what’s known as an “Exit”. Some day, the owners of Bitconnect can decide to shut down operations and exit. Whoever made money made it, and whoever had money on the books, will lose that money. This is going to hurt poeple’s confidence in this ‘space’, because they didn’t take time to understand the space they were in.
I saw this with Network Marketing. Had people really understood network marketing or even the message of TopnetworkersGroup, they never would’ve put all their ‘eggs’ into the ONE zeekRewards basket. With blockchain technology, the one thing we are seeing every single day is that no ‘one’ coin will rule them all. Each will have different uses, and values. That’s going to mean that those of you who’ve only put your money into “ONE” coin, are going to wish you had listened!
I won’t tell you what to do with your time and money, but I’ve seen this show before. Proceed with caution should you decide to ‘continue’ with your involvement in Bitconnect. Just know, this very well could end up going the same way as ZeekRewards did. So will other platforms like it.
I don’t want to beat around the bush. I’m going to tell you Why people say no to network marketing. Are you ready …. ? The answer is … Conditioning. It’s that simple, and that is why you are never going to get ‘through’ to some people. In network marketing, if you are in a company with professional training, you will be taught to Sort. Too many people in network marketing however, are not in good MLM Companies, and do not work with well trained teams. So unfortunately they are being taught to ‘sell’… which does not work, with the MLM business model.
That’s where people start talking about being scammed by network marketing. They’re ‘sold a dream’ instead of reality, and ‘sold’ into buying tools to build a house of cards. It’s because someone, decided to sell rather than sort. When you are sorting, you are going into the ‘process of recruiting’ without getting emotional over who says yes, or no. You’ll find people who are ‘looking for’ what you are offering to them. You aren’t in the convincing business, and aren’t getting your feelings hurt by rejection. This is a mental level that people have to work to reach. It does not come natural to most people. (See our 1mlmsystem Training Information now)
Especially for anyone who’s like me, and has competitive fire burning inside. When someone says no, or makes ‘fun’ of your income opportunity the instinct is to ‘win’ that encounter. You won’t ‘overcome’ conditioning…
That too, is why people say No to Network Marketing. The people who are making fun of your opportunity are ‘also’ trying to win that encounter. Instead of recruiting, you’ve gotten yourself into a contest. Unfortunately because of the conditioning I mentioned earlier, nothing you ‘say’ is going to ‘win’ them over. Let me give you an even more insightful understanding of what I mean by conditioning.
I’ll summarize this : The other day I shared a ‘well known example’ on my facebook…. which I put in quotes in case it isn’t well known, to you.
4 monkeys in a cage:a Ladder with a Banana at the Top;
Every time the Monkeys climb the ladder they get a Tremendous SHOCK!
After all 4 have been SHOCKED several times, they learn to stop climbing the ladder.
1 monkey is replaced with a New monkey who’s never been shocked; but when ever he attempts to climb the ladder the other 3 stop him!
Eventually that monkey stops trying, and another monkey is replaced – once again the New monkey attempts to climb, and all 3 monkeys (even the one who’s never been SHOCKED) stop him until, the new monkey no longer tries to climb.
As it turns out there were five monkeys, but you’ll get the drift.
This is why people say No to network marketing. They’ve been conditioned to look for a job, and not to own the job. SO many people throughout our society have been trained to associate ‘pain’ with recruiting. Even the idea of being rejected, is something people have ‘learned’ to identify as a bad experience. Truth is, rejection is a great experience. It helps you identify who you can make money with, and who is just a distraction.
When people say No to your network marketing opportunity, let them go.
Twitter False Flags: The ‘improvements’ to Twitter only make it easier for Cyber bullies to false flag profiles they don’t like and get them punished! This really empowers bullies and does not help any of the challenges Twitter’s change in ‘community guidelines’ are supposed to fix. It doesn’t stop trolls, or cyberbullies, but instead makes it easier for them to silence any one who might ‘make a fool’ out of them. Bullying requires ‘numbers’. One person cannot ‘bully’ another. A Bully in the traditional sense is ‘bigger and stronger’ than the person they like to pick on. In today’s world, bullies are ‘groups’ of people online – usually groups of white people with mob mentality. They are very aggressive, angry and problematic – and make discussions nearly impossible. The only point of view that matters is ‘theirs’ and they use ‘numbers’ to get their points across. Or, to simply false flag people they don’t like, so there can be no (or little) opposition to their point of view.
These bullies just want to get their way. Twitter False Flags flaw allows bullying to happen…..
Yes, My twitter is currently suspended ….
My account was false flagged by a group of MLM Twitter Bully Trolls. Apparently I accidentally got into it with the wrong person, but that wasn’t my intent. I was scrolling the #MLM hashtag on twitter and came across a tweet. The tweet was asking for ‘stories’ from people who’ve been ‘duped’ by MLM companies.
I asked this person to elaborate on how they were scammed … and instead of simply elaborate, they decided to attack.
As you see, the first thing She did was Tag Three other people who all Hate MLM. (Setting me up for twitter false flags algorithms to strike)
Who are they and why did she tag them? Next thing she did was attempt to misdirect the conversation with semantics. She used the word ‘duped’ and I used the word ‘scammed’. So rather than, elaborate on how she was scam/duped, she wanted to make it about ‘the words’.
Apparently (as I found out after) that is this person’s entire mission. Them and their ‘gang of I hate MLM trolls’ are all just using twitter to harm other people using false flagging. She must have known that she would not be able to actually explain how she was scammed, or duped. So instead, she called for back up.
Naturally she worded it differently here after I asked her why she was tagging people I wasn’t talking to, instead of elaborating on how she was Scammed by MLM.
These ‘people of interest’ were people that I’ve never spoken to in my entire life. There was no reason to include them in our conversation other than to start a fight. Naturally she denied it, because that is the kinda person she is. That is what’s wrong with most people that hate MLM’s this much, to create entire twitter accounts Just to attack the industry.
This is one of several ways that twitter false flags are a flaw twitter needs to fix, but probably won’t. Just like with YouTube, they are the ‘king of their space’ and are making too much money to change their ways.
At this point, this Twitter bully knows her ‘plan’ is working. Start a fight, frustrate, tag friends and let them report all your responses. IF enough reports come in it automatically triggers a Suspension.
Twitter’s “robot” algorithm is thinking – “This many people can’t be reporting this tweet if it’s not in violation…. so it must be in violation”. It doesn’t see, “Oh, this account is taunting them, and has tagged others to go around false flagging other users”.
But naturally she never ‘put her experiences into 144 characters; nor did she add a link. Instead of saying ‘check out this link where I did elaborate’, she decided to play semantics, and tag her Bully Tribe. Twitter False Flags, do your thing!
In a nutshell, this twitter troll called me unintelligent for insulting them. Nevermind the fact they’ve already insulted me by dragging this out as far as it went. Of course, any insult to a person who is insulting you is not translated by twitters automated robot algorithms. The false flag flaw, that is all too common with these huge social network platforms, allows for bullies to silence anyone in a ‘minority’.
One person asking for someone to elaborate on how they were scammed, cannot out flag a person who’s got a troll army that can’t wait to silence anyone challenging their ‘position’. I’m the guy who wrote about the ‘valid criticism’ levied against the MLM industry in #ThisIsAPyramidScheme (John Oliver rips network marketing).
Manhun? Twitter’s algorithm isn’t ready to read this as an Insult, when it is. Meanwhile this person who’s been disrespectful (insulting) throughout continues to talk as if they are the actual victim – while being dishonest about not being asked Clear, straight questions.
In this tweet she reveals that she was, indeed ‘afraid’ that she’d have to actually Prove she was scammed, or duped. Rather than do that, she proactively tagged other people who would attack me She had no intention to prove she was scammed, and that is important
For people who think MLM’s are scams, or pyramid schemes, please mind the messenger. Yes, I called this person a few names, they called me a few names too. So what. None of that has anything to do with ‘business’. Business is about Transactions. It’s about delivering on promises, and doing what you say you’re going to do.
Calling someone a dumb bitch, for being rude and disrespectful is human nature.
This is why Dr. Boyce Watkins Facebook was banned, and other outspoken black people. The ‘experience of the minority’ is what I’m getting at here. Because even if I were a white man, I would have been suspended in this situation. I would be outnumbered, and that’s the key. Twitter false flags are possible, because of numbers. It’s possible to get people’s pages on platforms ‘we don’t own’ suspended, because the numbers trolls have are greater.
Naturally it’s okay for her ‘celebrity-worhip-i-hate-mlm-heror’ to insult people and call them Manhuns. She can insult people’s intelligence and dodge answering questions. But her argument isn’t weak. Only the person that calls her a name for employing those tactics. This is how people think, in our society right now. Especially those who often lend themselves to ‘mob mentality’.
This was a lie. She did not happily want to have a convo with me. Instead she wanted to tag other people to bully me, report my page, dodge my straight questions, and play ‘victim’. These are not decent people…..
Corporate America rewards you for your time. You can be a shitty person, but if you clock in for a certain amount of hours, you’ll be paid for that time. MLM does not reward you for your time. So shitty people have a tough time making money. They resort to bashing the industry.
That’s so much easier to do.
Plenty of shitty people who’ve failed at MLM and don’t want to admit the problem is them, not the industry are ready to show them support. A person like Elle, they’ll justify, is a good person just like they are. MLM has to be the bad guy, not their work ethic. It isn’t their sheer lack of respect for other people that stands in their way of making money. It’s gotta be something else!
Woah! Explains why he was booted. Completely uncalled for. I'm sorry, @ElleBeauBlog. He was just looking for a fight.
This isn’t ironic. A person who, apparently as I found out after I got suspended, created it’s account to start fights with people in MLM, is getting support from a person who accuses ‘others’ of wanting that. I wanted her to tell me how she was duped .. or scammed. She wanted to debate over whether or not she said the word scam; whether I was intelligent, or whether or not she was attempting to bully me by tagging several people I wasn’t talking to.
This Twitter false flags flaw is a problem, like so many sites. Facebook has it, YouTube has it It’ll only be fixed when the masses demand networks that aren’t moderated by snowflake algorithms. We can use alternative social networks, like Steemit although it’s clearly not ready to compete with Twitter. There are rumors of a steem-based twitter site on the horizon however. The question however, is will it be ‘mass appealing’ or not?
*Update from 9/10/17 – I wrote this last night and already you’ll see Twitter Trolls from her Army of Shitty people in the Comments below. They are all proving my entire point. This woman is a troll and has an army of trolls ready to falsely report anyone who disagrees with their Hate for MLM. None of them are rational or intelligent people. They most likely rejected any pleas from uplines to read books (as many had trouble Reading this blog post; and don’t realize I got suspended, hence the reason my tweets are missing) – It speaks volumes to proving everything I said about them. None of them are smart enough to realize they’re making my case for me. Always mind your messenger – People like this fail at everything they attempt to do in life. Most of them are barely qualified to hold down a job. That’s who mostly levies criticism against MLM. This problem with people, lends itself to the Twitter False Flags flaw; that you’ll find in many social media outlets. Mob Mentality can be used for good or evil. As always the choice is yours.
P.S. – for all you haters in My comment section; Please know I Own This platform. You cannot suspend me from here. You cannot silence what I have to say; Wait till I make a video about all of you 🙂
Again, this one thinks I “Left my tweets out” — because she isn’t intelligent enough to know My account was Suspended, over the false flagging her troll army conducted. You’ll see other morons with the same point of view in the comment section. Low intelligent people Come together – (hence how we elected who we elected in November 2016.)
I don't think he understands the meaning of the phrase "false flag". What an odd wee man.
That moron, thinks I don’t know the ‘meaning of false flags’ — Racist white people are quick to assume black people are not Educated. I’m well aware of the ‘traditional meaning’ of false flags (war) – where a nation like the USA will hit a country like Cuba while waiving Cuban flags; So that people ‘think’ the attack was from Cuba – when it was under the USA using a ‘false flag’ — and this is what also makes MLM difficult; People bring their racist bullshit into this way of doing business. So they constantly ‘doubt’ that black people know the meaning of words. False Flagging ‘also’ refers to how TROLLS use social media sites to FLAG(report) people who are NOT in violation (False Flagging) — and yet again this is more evidence of the ‘kinda people’ that agree with the “I hate MLM” crowd.
I particularly missed the bit where he assumes to know Elle's ethnicity from a stock image and claims she has a "whitevictimhood mentality"
The idea of “White Victimhood” has been around for some time. I’m not the only black man who notices it. Just the other day Tariq Nasheed was covering an interview with Tabitha Soren (below). She defamed the memory of Tupac in that interview, and acted as if she was a ‘victim’ of black sexual advances. White people are always doing this – always starting shit and playing victim. So I didn’t have to assume her ethnicity over stock photos. I can tell what she is from how she acts, and who comes around her. Only one race of people behave in that manner with Mob Mentality.
P.P.S — notice all these Trolls with Elle are Hiding Their Real Identity. They are not showing their faces as they bash MLM, and anyone not on ‘their side’. It speaks volumes to how right I am about them. They are so mad they’re Trolling my blog now. They’re frustrated they cannot stop me from talking. I’m exposing how little credibility they have. They’re now all on Elle’s page lying about the things they ‘would have done’. We all see what she ACTUALLY Did though. None of them are Credible sources – While they hide like cowards behind Anonymity.
When I first asked her to tell me how she was scammed; she should have Linked me to her Blog; As it was explained I had NO idea she already wrote one when I asked her the question. She ‘could’ have respectfully told me she had already expounded in a blog; and gave me a link which I would have read. She did not do that. Instead she got rude, and tagged others to start a fight. She never wanted to have a discussion. I did.
They’re not bullies; they are ‘Collaborators’ — We’ll see if Twitter acts once they see this updated account showing evidence of what I told them. I wasn’t the one in violation of community guidelines; This cyber-bully gang is though. They have the same mentality as Kek-army, and other white supremacists – the only ones who have time to Mob Mentality together on the internet.
These are not GOOD people. These are dishonest, cowards who hide their faces. They’ll say they are not bullies, but yet you can see they are a gang from reading their interactions. They’ve got facebook groups where they keep in touch and troll-bully others together. They gang up on people and pretend it is Others who are unprofessional. This is why none of them made money in MLM.
MLM does not reward shitty people with money like a job does.
** Final Appendage **
She posted this a few moments ago. Clearly another lie as I’ll prove in a second….
Twitter needs to fix this flaw in their platform; but again, probably won’t, as they don’t have to. People like this, with agendas, who are clearly dishonest with ill intentions, should not be allowed to ‘gang up’ on people by simply reporting tweets they don’t like, en-mass. It should require more than that, to trigger suspensions. (even on accounts without the blue check!) – Twitter False Flags are Possible because of Lazy Moderation.
Notice, she grabbed this tweet from My profile (the first tweet is not @ her), edited out her comment, then showed my reply (notice it now includes @ her) to “Elle’s” lies about me with a link to the ‘full context’ of the conversation. She felt Threatened by the truth; so her and her Troll army had to Twitter False Flag me – to “silence” me on that platform. Again, mind the messenger – Know that the people in the comments are all ‘proving my point’ – Trolls run in Groups, in Mobs, and all repeat themselves. They are like demons. Literally – you must be real careful, about who you listen to.
Gary Vee Cusses. Tony Robbins cusses. Let a black man Say a cuss word and he’s not a professional.
*Update 9/11/2017 :: Twitter False Flags Flaw Exposes MLM Bullies: Troll Leader calls off her Bullies; Tries to continue to pretend she’s Not who I said she is; but realizes this Blog totally proves it; So do the comments.
Because she is the troll Leader, Elle posted more tweets today.
The truth is our views may ‘not’ differ all that much but we never got a chance to discuss our views. Elle made no attempt to have a conversation with me. As demonstrated, the first thing she did was tag her troll army. These cyber bullies are not decent people, and are therefore not good sources to listen to when it comes to making Business decisions. They have exposed themselves by trying to suggest professionalism has to do with whether or not you Cuss out people who are attacking you. They want to make it about me calling Elle a Dumb Bitch, when by definition that’s what she is. She was rude (which is the definition of bitch) from the first Response she typed to me. And I’ll prove that she’s also Dumb. All this fuss she is making about how MLM’s are evil, how they are scamming others and what not, look at what she also wrote to one of her Troll Followers.
Too naive and trusting she calls it. As I stated, she’s dumb. She’s not a business woman who makes business (Logical) Decisions before joining companies. She is nothing more than a bully with a platform, and Twitter has given her power. So have other white people like her, who are also souless trolls that are looking for anyone to blame other than themselves. They are just, ‘too trusting and naive” ….. So she’s willing to admit she’s stupid ‘on her terms’ but not on mine I guess.
Her ‘calling off her troll army’ is just more evidence that she has the “Influence” to have directed a Troll army to Falsely Report My Tweets and get my account suspended; to which she gleefully bragged about – because she and her ilk, are shitty individuals.
(again notice all of them hide their faces…. cowards) If you follow people like this, you’re probably a coward with no real intelligence or an ability to read a business plan either. You’re just another loser, like these people are, and this is your “Losers Anonymous Support Group”. They’ll welcome you in with open arms, so long as you promise to go around Trolling Twitter like they do. They are not good people at all folks. The comments they left, the tweets they’ve put out in public all expose the truth.
It’s obvious, in plain sight, but unfortunately Twitter false flags flaws won’t catch it because algorithms aren’t written that way.
…. Scam and Dupe, actually Do mean the same thing. This, again is why I called her a Dumb Bitch. That’s what she is. Below is even More Evidence that @ElleBeauBlog is a Total Moron ….
Proving that @ElleBeauBlog is a dumb bitch; along with all her followers – scam and dupe mean the same thing
Thing about it is, that’s how all of this started. She was called a Dumb bitch, NOT because I am Unprofessional.
Profession has zero to do with anything when a person asks you ‘why do you say you were scammed?”. Her decision, again was to DENY that she said she had been Scammed (because she used the word Duped) — I know this is complicated for the Stupid people roaming our planet right now, but read it a few times if you need. SHE wanted to ARGUE with me over whether or not SCAM and DUPE mean the same thing.
Only a (uneducated) DUMB (rude) Bitch does that folks. As you can see in her tweets, she’s gleefully bragging like she knows more than the black guy! She swears the two words are not the same. Better not inform her of what ‘synonym’ means. Her Troll army will just blindly follow anyways, which is the sad part. That’s why so few people make money in MLM. Most people in the industry are idiots (I’m on record saying this for years now). I’ve written about how I’m “not a fan of people in MLM right now” years ago. It even had a part 2 – and again this post, mostly about how cowards team up on individuals to silence Resistance to their lies proves it.
*Update September 18, 2017 – In what I am sure WILL Be my “final appendage” to this post – The FUNNIEST thing ever happened. The same group of TROLLS who mass reported me and got me kicked off Twitter, are now complaining that Facebook Shut down one of Their own. Apparently Someone gave them a taste of their own medicine; and if you read their tweets – it proves everything I said about them here. These are foul creatures. It’s all good when they mass report others, but if it happens to one of THEM, then the system is flawed. LOL – Read about it all here @ Cyber Bullies Taste Karma After Running Me Off Twitter
The other day on our YouTube channel we released a brief overview of Ong.Social which is a brand new social network. Unlike several others this one is ‘built on the blockchain’, and has plans to begin paying out in cryptocurrency. In fact, OnG is a cryptocurrency itself and over the weekend their ICO for this coin launched.
Exciting times lay ahead! Specifically for Ong.Social, which potentially could become the Next Facebook.
Then Again, will Ong.Social be the Next TSU?
TSU was an exciting social network that launched about two years ago, but went out of business. We attached ourselves to that network, and believed in the vision. However, there are plenty of reasons for why TSU didn’t make it. So many of these reasons stand as valuable lessons, that Ong.Social will want to avoid if it wants to become the Next Facebook.
That was TSU’s mission afterall, just like so many social networks. They are the granddaddy and so, naturally they are the goal as well. If you’re running a social network and don’t want to become as big as facebook, then what are you doing? Why are you even in the space for, if you aren’t striving to be the best!?
TSU took it’s jab, and did so unsuccessfully. I’ll give you a few reasons why right now.
The $100 minimum payout that TSU established was just far too high! When earnings are based on views, and the value your profile is bringing to the network then those earnings are sure to vary. The way the business model was set up for TSU gave people with the ability to refer others, an advantage over others. It also made it much easier for some to reach the payout, than it did for others.
Being paid in ‘fiat dollars’ may also be a strategy that has exhausted itself. Right alongside the idea of asking people to ‘pay to use a social network’, we have come to discover that no one really wants to be paid in dollars. Getting paid in cryptocurrency though? That’s a much more exciting proposition.
TSU also had too many changes to their compensation model, which I feel was a reaction to yet another failure on their part. They added a report button, and that’s always a huge risk. Whenever websites give the power to the community to regulate others on the community it’s problematic. False flagging is a real challenge in the social network universe, and some companies handle these ‘reports’ better than others. The simple fact is, TSU was not ready to properly handle reports, which often led to people losing their social profiles and all accumulated earnings.
Once the word spread that people were losing their accounts on TSU, activity dropped. With a business model who’s income is based on ads, which are tied to activity, it was a formula for failure. This led to changing the platform several times, and it simply never caught up!
If OnG.Social wants to be the Next Facebook, and avoid being the Next TSU, this is what they’ll want to do.
Don’t change anything from how it is right now.
That’s a major one… because eventually change will have to occur. Nothing ever stays the same and if it does, it usually falls behind the times. But OnG.Social has something good on it’s hands right now. The plans for their future, that I have seen so far look great to me.
