Social media eliminates the need to provide value to anyone

The only TED I have any interest in right now is my friend Shaun’s ailing cat. As for the TED with which you may be familiar, that’s just bollocks put together by preening pseudo-intellectual narcissists. But parodies of TED can be fun, including this one on social media…

“Social media eliminates the need to provide value to anyone.”

Now I found this hugely funny, and at the same time deadly serious in the way that it nails the vacuity of so much social media. Yet real money is made through this nonsense. For how long it will continue I do not know, but for now I tip my hat to the borderline fraudulent creativity of its perpetrators. I just wish I had the nerve to join in and reap the rewards.
