Social Media as a Game

IS it me, or do Empire Avenue and Klout seem like they were developed by Zynga? I think of them as Linkedinville.

Anyway, I am dabbling with them because I’d like to really grok the concepts before I decide they are a waste of time. All it costs is time, and since I’m on a Reddit diet, I have a lot more of that now.

Here’s something that I think we can all relate to. My local Wendy’s has these signs – multiples of them – in their drive-through lane saying “No Cell Phone Use, Turn Your Car Radio Off When Ordering”.
These were not hand scrawled on poster-board but professionally made on sheet metal by a sign-maker.

Is this really the side of you by which you want your customers to judge you?
