UGNN : What’s hot and what’s not in the user group community this week 1611-21

InfoManager : what's new online I’m happy and sad this week. Happy because we had some fun discovering things posted by Mugs and Mug friends. However I’m sad because stupid fake, and rude posts far out-numbered real content. Even more disturbing is that it appears to be a trend. UG members who used to find real treasures that we were proud to share now just propagate junk and crap. Some of the best known MUGS in the world, known for their hugely beneficial sites and pages now dwindle to one or two real contributors. The leaders in our field and industry now tweeting dominos and media pander. Social media has proven itself as a remarkably powerful medium — for good or for bad. But it’s discouraging when it seems to be moving toward deep, snoring, mediocrity*, and that’s sad.
