drbubb Posted October 14, 2010 Report Share Posted October 14, 2010 Explaining GEI's appeal ... to someone under 30 y.o. Why a Facebook user might want to look at this site ================================== Maybe someone here can help me out - I am not a Facebook user. I had a chat with some intelligent young people who are regular users of Facebook and Twitter. These seem to be the two most important "pipes" or channels through which they view the world. When I tried to explain to them that GEI was a chatboard, which attracted people who are interested in discussing their investments, and also a wider range of issues, they seemed very confused by that. They common reaction of the two was; + Chatboards are very old fashioned, and not much worth visiting, although: + They got the idea of DrBubb's Diary - they said, "oh, its like a blog then." I tried explaining it was far better and more interesting than a one-way Blog, since "people can introduce their own ideas... and I am not involved in every discussion." "Why should you want that?" - they asked, "Don't you want every discussion under your name and branding?" Of course not, how would I find out what other people really think? == == Maybe it is a generational thing, but I think younger people do not really understand the concept of an investor related chatboard. Can someone help me to figure out how to describe the "appeal" of GEI to younger folk? == == Later, I caved in - taking the suggestions here, and created this: GEI on Facebook: a blank sheet? : http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001689102135 Am I breaking a Rule with this?
