Personally, I think the ClixGrid is or at least was, a unique strategy. I wouldn't go so far
as to call it ingenious but simply a very good idea that someone came up with.
I use Facebook. Mostly, its about the Facebook user in regards to how much information
they want to share. There is also the option to set your Facebook account to private so
that only those you deem to see your postings, can.
Recently, I was discussing Facebook with someone and telling them how I wished we had
the internet when I was in grade school. All the friends I grew up with.....well, very few
do I have any idea where they are now. IF we had the net and Facebook when I was a
kid, I'd probably still be in touch with many of my old childhood friends. There's good and
bad in most things but I think overall, Facebook has given an easy way for friends/families
to connect easily, stay connected easily, post their selfies, baby pics, etc. The bad part is,
the people themselves that use Facebook, many seem to relay way too much information.
Still, that is the 'peoples choice' to relay info or not, to post pics of themselves and their
families or not.
'Old' as meaning both ways. Not just age. I was trying to recall exactly what year it was
I started using the internet and I can't remember. I guess it was the late 80's. It was at
a time when the only way you accessed the internet was through dial up and it was slow
as syrup. Once online, it was fascinating but there was not much to see. In the early to
mid 90's I began seeing money making opportunities which consisted of many HYIP shams.
There was also many of the mail shams. I do recall one mail sham I joined in the 90's
called 'Show Me The Money' and a dot com at that. You'd mail your 5 upline each a $20
dollar bill. I did! I sent them each 20 bucks.
Then there were programs that were
very primitive such as 'Bravenet' that gave you free website counters. HAHA! He made
a fortune! The big deal came along with 'GoingPlatinum' early in 1999. He was going to
'change the internet'. In the year 2000, that started the masses, I think. More people
online, more websites, ideas from all around, and failing could hurt if you didn't play your
hand right but at least it was interesting and fun.
I think of sites like Facebook and Twitter, as very simplistic ideas that probably unknowingly,
targeted lazy. Lazy like AOL. If you can give people a very easy way to do something,
they are certainly more likely to do it than a complicated way to do something. An example
is an elderly aunt of mine.....she doesn't know squat about computers or online stuff, but
she has a Facebook account. She can type enough to stay in contact with family, see
images of her grandchildren, etc.
Look at 'AlertPay' started by the Patel's. I don't know if you remember them but the
younger Patel was the original software creator of my coffee program. Horrible software
it was which did aide hugely in losses but what I am saying is, he had some goofy old
programs that were not about much. I think it was more so him, not his brother, that
came up with AlertPay. I'm positive of it. He had my web designer design it and he
contacted me to join it.....I was the first to join so I could test it......and so I could help
him promote it....which I did not do, by the way. I was still peeved about the crappy
software he sold me.
Bottomline, lots of ideas of which most fell to the wayside but it was fun, interesting,
and all led to the growth of the internet. Even MLM lawyers arose out of no where and
some laws were introduced.
So in regards to your original topic, you do the 20 if you want the daily bonus and if
you think it's too many, present an alternative in the Feature request forum. Some
-Third account option. Instead of only free and premium, add a Platinum membership.
Platinum members may earn the daily checklist bonus with a minimum of viewing only
5 ads. Other incentives such as higher ref earnings, especially on other platinum members.
-Alternative daily completion. Do an extra offer or task and only need to click 10 ads
in the grid.
In regards to 'gamification' and brainwashing, well I don't know totally what the heck
you are talking about exactly. I have a couple of grandkids that most every time I see
them, I have to bend way down to see their face. Not because they are young and
short but because their face is glued to either mom's cell phone or their DS gamer.
Mom's use to give their kids coloring books or books. You'd go to the doctors office
or out most any where and you'd see a child with their doll, football, coloring book,
book, etc. Now, you see them with gamers. I think with the problem with society is
with every generation, new things come into play but also old things are cast away.
