The Kellogg School of Management has issued a study ( hat tip: Rich Becker ) that shows the more social connections one has, the more likely they are to treat others as less than. We see that big britches are a common by-product of doing well online. So all of the big bloggers who protest, “Not I,” really need to take a serious gut check. Here’s the truth about this phenomena: It is timeless. It’s the stuff of novels and movies. Anyone read Faust lately?

Tell us your thoughts on these changes here on the blog, or over on our Facebook and Twitter pages! Let’s start with a story. Prior to 2008, Google’s indexing happened mostly by robots and computers. As we know, they searched for keywords, meta-information, tags, etc. Google, however, was smart enough to realize that this created a system that could be manipulated by webmasters, bloggers and the like. So in 2008, the company started hiring REAL people, thousands of them, to rate websites. They rated sites on the things that we rate them on – fresh content, easy layout, nice design.

[Twitter] Optimal Post Length: 50 To 200 Words
Facebook, Twitter, and a few social platforms already do this. If a member's contribution is too short, it has no value. Imagine lots of responses along the lines of " great!", " first response!" , " congratulations!" or "good luck" These responses don't add much value to the community. They're often created to boost post counts rather than make any real impact. However, if a contribution is too long, fewer people read it. This feels about the right length to me*.

You need to reach people to get them to do something? And I sure would. Thank you!
