This week’s RNC already produced an amazing amount of vitriol on Facebook and Twitter. I tuned out completely during the evenings.
Next week’s DNC promises to add more.
Perhaps you have seen the September issue of Fast Company.
Instead it discusses how the Office screenwriter built a substantial personal brand on Twitter, and garnered a TV sitcom. It’s even got some cool stats on TV social network sharing.
The cover baits men and women who may be interested in Kaling’s sex appeal and how social media embellishes it.
As someone who delivered more than his fair share of snarky, forceful contrarian opinion about people and brands in online conversations, I believe this behavior harms communities.
Having alienated readers, friends and business interests alike with this behavior, I’ve made a concerted effort to change.
But people don’t forget so easily, as a couple of commenters reminded me in response to this week’s Cathryn Sloane post.
My conclusion: It takes a long time to amend “douchebaggery.”
