Research gamification and why companies are applying it to their business practices.
I'll give you an example.
Back in 2007 - 2008 Internet marketing was easy to gain referrals building a real home based business.
Today, traffic exchanges has killed network marketing, MLM home based business building.
Today, it's gamification, keep you entertained, mindless silly badges, stickers, it's brain washing.
Unfortunately Rod, you are correct. I don't really like to go down that road because we're old.
I don't know about the 'brainwashing' end of things but I am mostly concerned about the where the end
of the road is. I doubt we'll see it and even if we do, we probably won't know our head from a hole in the
ground by that time. Then again, things move mighty fast these days. Personally, I find it rather sad and
disappointing. It's just not interesting any more. You know what I mean.
In regards to ClixSense and the grid, well I suppose its mostly about the advertisers. Ya can't have
people purchasing grid ads and no one viewing their ads. That would be senseless. So I suppose they
have the numbers down pact with the number of ad purchases for the grid and the number of members
that actually use it.
Buy 100 ad views
Only 1 person viewing the ad each day
= 100 days for the ad to run out
It would be nice if there was an alternative, however. You might think of something and present it in
the feature request. For example, a choice of viewing 20 grid ads or completing two more offers...some
such as that.
