Instagram.. I am beside myself how many young women are so insecure they have to post picture after picture after picture of themselves half naked to get attention.. These poor girls have no idea how to really work.. I think most of them don't even know how to learn anything anymore. It's all about what they can get from other people.. And they get it.. It's like feeding ducks at a local pond.. don't even know how to find food for themselves. I am curious to see how this plays out.. When all these young women are older and replaced by younger women.. What is that un employment line going to look like..


This is the story of a girls in general that has been going on since the beginning of time. How many times on a night out do you see girls in super tight dresses (god bless them for it) trying to get attention? Guys and girls approach life differently and it's not a good or bad thing, it's just the nature of the game. From an evolutionary perspective, girls look to attract a mate when they are at their peak (in looks, fertility and ability to foster multiple options). Social Media is another avenue to get the most coveted currency of all: attention and social validation. Girls get to enjoy a quick rocket to the top but where they have to manage it wiseley for the long haul. Guys have a much longer and harder road to get up the social rungs (with only a few exceptions) and so this experience helps us value the long haul. These are complimentary strategies as evidenced by how a vast majority of women are attracted to or will seek out men older. To sum it up, it's like women win the lotto and men climb the corporate ladder. There's nothing wrong with either, both have different strategies at play that they utilize for their own benefit.

Also, when I said:

I only have Facebook and Instagram. Plenty for me and both are PRIVATE. I am not on FB or instagram often but do like the privacy option. We do push a little social media for business but for my business it really does not do much...Instagram for business is ATACSOL and Paradise Greens.

Facebook for business is:
Paradise Greens

Armageddon Tactical Solutions
ATACSOL Precision Rifles
Both of these we do not do much because most of our business is OGA/MIL/LE so we can not post any training on it. We do not do any civilian training unless just one-on-one for friends, etc.

Leveraging mainly Instagram, has been useful in getting bookings for my photography stuff, but aside from that it is all like has been said, faux-rich, the tea that is an mlm and makes you poop, and dreadful motivational shit.

Social media is public masturbation

The members are the best, operationally the forum could do with an update, adding photos is a major PITA and many times the site is offline showing some error IPS or something along those lines if I remember correctly.

If I were to put it in car terms I'd say it's a MY2003 Gallardo, it gets you there, still and exotic but from time to time it has few mechanical issues LOL

Sadly in 20 years I still haven’t seemed to learn how to post a pic. Guess I’m the resident idiot. I can live with that.

I think social media is dangerous.

I love twitter though. But I try not to check it too much and only follow a handful of good accounts.

Pretty much sums up my view, too lazy to type biggrin.gif and Chamath is much better at rationalizing than I am biggrin.gif



Great vid!

The "Oliver Stone Complex" is what I call it because Oliver Stone is that guy who's made millions of dollars by telling people that making money and the people who make money are all bad

This is a nice vent thread about social media. I concur with most on here about all of the garbage relating to social media.

One good thing FB and Twitter have done is give a look at the nature of people that they don't realize they are giving off. You can know people a long time and have a good read on them, then look at their posting nature and see a side of them you didn't know exists.

We are also a part of this too, although the quieter you are on it, the less you will broadcast on it. I've noticed myself and a few others have reduced their FB posting content quite a bit.

FB is nice to have to keep track of what's going on back home when you are halfway across the world. I couldn't imagine living remote without it...

Twitter is good for those people you care to actually follow, and it seems to be a more ideal platform at times than blogs, forums, etc due to its instant nature. For example I will follow numerous insider personalities on Twitter the instant NFL free agency hits in March and follow all of the transactions in real time....

The business side of social media might be its best asset. Gary Vee will swear it's the most important thing ever, but at the very least it's relevant.
