But my complaint is the complaint of most small businesses. And we now know it is a typical complaint because iContact.com did a survey recently about it recently. (http://blog.icontact.com/blog/icontact-survey-uncovers-love-affair-with-facebook/). They are also running a contest for the best video submission that tells why you love or hate social media (http://social.icontact.com/icontactPeople.) People have all kinds of different reasons to praise or complain. If you’re interested in making a submission, you’ve got until December 5, 2011. Considering that you stand to win $10,000 for a first place (1 prize for “love,” 1 prize for “hate”) you might want to send in your opinion.
I discovered this stuff earlier today while I was researching for an article I wanted to write on the difficulties of social media for small businesses. I got sidetracked by finding the contest and then clicking on one of the submissions out of curiosity. I know better, but I just couldn’t help myself. Distractions like this are like catnip to the ADD brain.
Nevertheless, I found the wonderfully funny video I’ve embedded for you below. I’m a bit late in the day getting to blog about it. First I had to put it on Facebook, Twitter and Google+. Then I had to email it to my brother and my sister. Oh, please, don’t get me started on complaining about email. I still have to write that article on small business and social media.
Enjoy the video: “Social Media is for Loosers.”
