Hey Baby… You Come Here Often?

Social networking is pretty interesting when it comes to other general stuff of interest. But when it comes to Forex… I feel that it is kind of dry. Don’t you think?

I mean take Twitter for instances… Just recently I got like a bunch of ‘people’ followed me after my previous posts. I was like wow… interesting… but somehow or rather something was not quite right.

If you get username like Forex ______ it kind of raise some curiosity.

So I check out their profiles… These fu(kers are actually promoting their product via twitter. I mean it’s all fair and equal in the ground of what one wants to use a platform for… but what surprises me most is this…

It is a twitter ‘courtesy’ to follow back someone who is following you… with that in mind… some fu(kers starts to exploit this kind courtesy and start following anything and everything that has a hint of the word forex…

I mean check out their followings and followers…

I really pity these followers… 20k tweets…. what is it all about?! Pushing this one product…

This is just crazy… every few minutes… he will put on a header… then if you look at it closely… same link over and over and over again…

My gawd!! Same shit, different way of putting it… Tell me how this is not spamming?

Well… I should say all these twitter user belongs to one fu(ker… (except for Forex OverDrive I can’t verify that it is the same guy). How I know this? Well… I just follow the link and I see the same clickbank affiliate ID… CBTOP

And honestly speaking… I can only guess that tactic works… Why?

Because this fu(ker is doing over and over and over again… It must work… if not… he would stop at ‘Hello…’

Now I read the book Twitter Power by Joel Comm… if you don’t know him he is one of the top internet marketeer around…  Good book if you want to know what twitter is all about and how to use it properly…

In his book he also did mention about the courtesy to follow back… but a few weeks after that… I believe he started to do some spring cleaning… and told everyone that he will only follow who he though was interesting and will not do the courtesy to follow back those who wants to follow him.

It was that incident that I too started to follow his suit. It makes more sense to only follow people I care or want to know about especially with forex.

But here is the problem… do a search for forex… or any other forex key word and you will see tons of junk!!! Finding someone to really follow and learn and build some kind of social network is totally impossible with twitter… I guess this is one of the reason why I do not want to do any twitting…

As Joel says (or kind of said it)… Twitter is a great place to build your business and relationship with people… and I believe he does not necessarily mean to try to push your products to your followers.

This guys is really trying to pick-up as many followers as he can and trying to score…

Well… he ain’t going to score with me… I’m straight…
