Are humans next?
Each Social Media Network has different strengths and completely different audiences.
Here are a few examples of correctly shareing financial articles on different networks. Using posts from the popular financial crowdsourcing site SeekingAlpha.
Linkedin - Evaluating a company using the CAN SLIM method. This example analyzes the current overall value of Facebook: http://bit.ly/1dlUmx2
There isn’t much need to create discussion on LinkedIn. The audience is generally has a bit of spare time but they want to gain something with it. Perhaps even learn something.
Twitter - Is $Tsla stealing pages from $Aapl’s playbook?: http://bit.ly/18yd47b
2 Dollar tags in one short tweet should ensure a finance savvy crowd. The word ‘stealing’ makes it scandalous and attractive.
Facebook - Video adds are coming to your news feed. How much money is Facebook about to make on them?: http://bit.ly/1fFJnAN
Here people are liking for stuff that affects them directly or that affects people, products, & companies they care about.
Always look before you post. If there’s some trending topic, go with it. If there’s a large event, post about it. Being a traffic director requires an understanding of where people want to go.
This question has been floating around the Internet lately so I’d like to answer it here once and for all in a few simple words.
Of course, nobody has mistaken the new digital currency for a flower.
What people really want to know is: Will Bitcoin sustain it’s new $1,000 level, will it grow, our will it crash?
The reference comes from Holland. About 400 years ago when the Tulips were first introduced, they quickly became very valuable.
"At the peak of tulip mania, in March 1637, some single tulip bulbs sold for more than 10 times the annual income of a skilled craftsman."
Today, the term Tulip Mania is used as the classic example of an asset bubble.
1. Supply - Tulips can be grown. So over time, they are able to increase in order to meet the market’s demand. The amount of Bitcoins in the world will never exceed 21 million. So supply will remain limited.
2. Liquidity - Tulips are an asset, whereas Bitcoin is a form of money.
One of the requirements to be considered money is liquidity. A flower that costs as much as a house is not an easy thing to trade. It cannot be split into smaller pieces for smaller transactions without losing it’s value.
Bitcoin can be divided to the 8th decimal making it liquid for trade.
3. Decay - Very simple… flowers cannot be used as a way to store value because they will quickly wilt and be worthless.
In conclusion, Bitcoins are not Tulips.
Will it there be rapid rises and falls in price as confidence shifts? Certainly!!
It’s up to us, the global Internet community, to decide weather we want this new coin or not. The sooner we do that, the quicker the price will stabilize.

The similar pattern here does not seem to be a coincidence at all. The same fundamentals are being represented as the moneyness of each is considered by investors.
The difference is the speed in which changes are factored by the market between the old form of money and the new.

Bill Nye, the harmless children’s edu-tainer known as The Science Guy, managed to offend a select group of adults in Waco, Texas at a presentation, when he…
Politicalprof: As Mrs. Prof noted, we have been to the moon (probably!) and did not catch on fire. So, I’m going with Bill Nye here …
That’s hilarious politicalproof.
Though, this dilemma was resolved for me in Jewish grade school. The verse says that G-d created two great lights, then says one is larger than the other.
The great commentator, Rashi, teaches us that the reason for this strange language is because G-d originally created both the sun and the moon as equals. The moon then complained and said to G-d that one of the lights should be diminished.
This all happened behind the scenes. So when the verse said 2 great lights, they were indeed both great, but then something happened to make one of them larger than the other.
In any case, the people of Waco always have and will always be Wakko. Not sure what Bill was doing there in the first place.
Here’s an excellent visualization of the global currency exchange system. Notice the US Dollar is no longer in the middle of the mechanism. The world stands on 3 major exchanges which interact with each other in a triangle.
This movie coming out in a few days. Will definitely be watching it.
