Politicians and big companies are frightened by Social Networks Boom

Although it were expected and many people and I have already announced it too isn’t less grate: Politicians and the elites of Spain are losing control over information (finally!), thanks to Social Networks.

In Spain we have moved for many years as a mass, as a ‘herd’. We believed everything that: mass media, on TV especially but also newspapers, that is to say all what politicians told us. Depends on newspaper what you could read you are leftist or rightist. There was no room for improvisation, room to change anything… and that’s the reason we have reached such a corruption degree.

Why do I hardly ever tweet in Spain?

I was tweeting in Spain, in Spanish, for 4 years. At the beginning of 2013 I began to move away from Spain and I continue tweeting abroad yet. Tweeting with Spanish people brought me quite little to my Networks profit.

Without taking into account Spanish FRIENDS, I’m still being in contact with them and most of them I have met in person, the rest of Spanish tweeters has given me very few spoken relatively, much less if we consider the long period of 4 years. In Spain people provide a little support, almost never they share knowledge. Very few people offer help and all of this is very shocking because Spaniards are completely the opposite in other things. Professionals: because they are afraid you take their work out, ‘famous ones’ because they are on a pedestal and they do not want to stoop to our level and our peers, because there is not a true collaborationist.

Why do I often use Klout and Kred?

There are many people who despise these two Social Media-Influence Tools and I think they’re wrong a lot. Their arguments are correct but they don’t know the true value that they can bring both Networks.

KloutThere is no doubt that both are tools of influence, which ultimately give you a number (Score) which supposedly tells you if you are more influential or less on networks. ‘Critics’ with influence tools, say that this number is not representative, that it could be distorted easily and that there are incomprehensible imbalances, and so that, these tools are completely useless. They are in the right way about the score part but I did not use only them by the final number (score) I reach, although I have it very high now. At first maybe the number ‘excites you’ a little. When you start and you have the score very very low because you haven’t connected all networks yet, because you haven’t ever logged in,… but in the end, you subtract importance to the score issue. Most of people don’t mind their score. This is very usual, not only to me.
