Of course it would be foolhardy to not include a sort of reference to how popular someone may be, especially if you are host to. To know the future of pricing and promotion, is not so difficult to imagine. The old push market system that will certainly die a slow death, possesses such low conversion rates it’s hardly worth doing. Word of mouth and individual networks are yielding higher rates.

It may not be long before one’s popularity upon the web may dictate the final price. If you scored high for influence on Klout or other rating sites, your value to a product provider is and will continue to be immense. Such high rates of influence one day may get you a host of products for free, that’s right the most popular win again.

Now to say “begin to strengthen your network” is to become the understatement of what will be the century, please hear me loud and clear. “Strengthen and broaden the reach of your online networks”. I guarantee not only from our own perspective (and offerings), but many others who influence the web as well. You will pay higher prices in the future if you do not have a sizable network to share it with.

What most experience now on the Internet  is what happens when profit  importance exceeds service. Fortunately, Only one has the ability to serve the other.

Facebook’s update, the so-called super charged open graph and semantic web experience are here. Not a big surprise, any who are involved in research of the Internet could have predicted this and more. Up to this point, they appear to be doing what Microsoft had done for years with various “new” versions of windows. We were inched along slowly just enough to impress but nowhere near their real capacity.

The open graph is here to stay for those who take part (which are aplenty). The offering & service monitors user activity and intentions (‘using’, ‘searching’, ‘wanting’, ‘shopping’, ‘watching’, ‘playing’, ‘reading’ and listening’) to the Open Graph via app integration. Every action you take will be noted, examined and acted upon like no other. It’s official, the internet has turned into an interactive television. The only difference is this TV knows everything you do, Internet privacy is forever gone.

Why is this all being done? What need(s) does it solve? The 1st. and primary reason is to create advertising and marketing revenue. I can see (or hear) the Facebook sales pitch on this already, but don’t blame me for telling you “It’s all about the money”.

So how will it work? It’s pretty simple really. You show (by your behavior online) an interest in (for example) “Digital Camera’s”, and presto magico offerings and ads begin showing up in a whole bunch of creative ways. Why?, because Facebook told some camera provider that they (for a fee) will be given a “Chance” to capture your attention.

While thinking more of this and other forms of tactics like. I walked within about 5 to 6 feet of my front door, the dog (a very ambitious lab) jumps up and blazes a path to the door. Due to past behavior (Facebook open graph) he thought I was going outside where he very much desired to go. He (as many advertisers discover) was disappointed to realize (after his energy investment) that I was actually navigating towards the bathroom. This and many other fun little exercises comically take place often. Walk near the dog food and get ready to be greeted by a galloping, panting, happy bundle of joy with a waggly tail. Drive by any Dairy Queen and soon discover almost every child apparently must work for, loud proclamations in favor of are advertised (painstakingly so) for what some may call an eternity. So I could go on more with this but I’m sure you all get the picture, these conditioned responses are nothing new and have been applied since the dawn of time (especially to animals).

Now as you can imagine, we here at About2Buy are overjoyed as to the “all about the money” direction Facebook has taken with. For even though there is a whole bunch of creative math associated with the execution of, the strategy is no more intuitive than ancient man hiding behind a bush in close proximity to a “wild game path” anticipating dinner may walk by at any moment.

So as this “offensive” dumbing down of our intellect continues, Facebook (Mans best friend) in one fell swoop just “removed the Fourth of July from the calendar”. Now that’s impressive!

In coding theory error detection and correction or error control are techniques that enable reliable delivery of digital data over unreliable communication channels. Many communication channels are subject to Channel Noise, and thus errors may be introduced during transmission from the source to a receiver. Error detection techniques allow detecting such errors, while error correction enables reconstruction of the original data. Source:

Ok so what is the error?

Answer: Consumers Fragmented Pursuits.

So what is a commerce pursuit?

Answer: Random searching, review reading, discussions and the various acts associated with the certain acquisition of a product or service.

So what is the proposed error control?

Answer: A process by which random, fragmented (commerce) pursuits are harnessed and redirected to establish reliable organization.

What is the error correction?

Answer: Detect the “noise” (fragmented pursuits), organize and re-energize for the production of a successful result.

Why are we addressing this concern?

Because the internet currently may provide more net profit to advertising (and all related) as a whole than product selling. This could cause conversions (in all actuality) to be unattractive. For when a consumer converts, the quest is over and advertising (and related revenue) cease in relationship too.

Clarification: To all that are involved in the advertising and marketing chain (excluding conditional affiliates), it is more profitable when the consumer does not convert for an extended period of time.

So the argument from here can commence, who in the process deserves more of the profit?  The product provider who acquires and provides the item or the advertiser who through various channels produces the consumer?


Isn’t Today The Future You Envisioned Yesterday?


If you use these quotes in any form, remember to quote the source.

Being part of the future is more about aligning yourself with than pursuing to become part of. The future is not a place ahead we are aspiring to reach, but more-so as a forward place formed by inspiration and ideas which is moving toward’s the present.

Wow, inspired and enraged many by way of the last post, The answer contains a question.

When inside how difficult is it to experience the outside?

There is evidence one may advance the other!


Here is one that throughout time has been an eternal challenge.

It is theorized that gold and many (if not all) of the heavy metals may have been formed at the very moment a star had spent all energy and collapses upon itself just prior to supernova creating these metals within this violent occurrence from spent matter remaining.

Now alchemists and scientist (self proclaimed and not) have all been attempting for hundreds of years to create gold as the stars with not much success. I mean really who could produce this kind of gravitational pressure, heat and resulting violence on earth as to reproduce, it’s impossible right?

Well not so fast in our conclusion, gold may be synthesized successfully in the very near future. This by way of nano-particles or possibly in a process developed within a nuclear reactor just to name a few. So hold on because eventually (it seams) most all human challenges are overcome by those with the appropriate (and sometimes complex) experience, background, education and focused attention.

When some invent or create that of which has been known (by those absent of the experience, background, education and focused attention) to not be feasible prior too, the usual critics come out of hibernation as to dispute efforts by soliciting opinion from those who frankly “have not a clue”. I mean really how could an opinion be valid unless it retains the necessary. Just reference the best selling book “Ouliers” and reference the “10,000-Hour Rule” if you have any doubts as too.

So to those who have doubts as to the time administered by it’s founder to this effort, here is the tally:

Direct research, study and experience in all that is B2C Buyer/Seller Exchanges (in the hundreds of thousands): 37,440 hours

Direct research and application into the development of the About2Buy Project: 14,740

If curious as to this “lead into gold projects” feasibility, solicit opinion from those who may know. If in doubt, just check how many hours they have in the “real world” application of, seldom does success materialize without. I would be more confident asking a cosmetics clerk of ten years within a large department store about B2C exchanges then any, this person would not only have accumulated the necessary knowledge but more importantly have applied it on a long term basis.

By the way, we did the work for you and have introduced the About2Buy processes to many (hundreds) of experienced (long term) B2C practitioners over the last seven years. The consensus as to our success is remarkably favorable!

While spending some time with various programmers, consultants and service providers I have come to a very distinctive conclusion. We all have our specialties which when moved outside of causes (for many) delay’s which are either unacceptable or difficult (if not impossible) to overcome.  Take (for instance) commerce and all that it involves. In B2C commerce one would expect that a level of understanding would be the natural course for all because we all have been subjected too for quite some time. But from my experience when speaking with all the aforementioned, it is a specialty of which is greatly misunderstood. Take for example the understanding of someone who has had very few real one on one buyer/seller exchanges under their belt but claims to have an understanding of all that is B2C commerce. I have found this level of understanding challenging to say the least. So when presenting a highly groundbreaking and possibly market changing idea to a programmer, consultant or other folks in the business start-up chain, getting others to fully connect to all that is “experienced” commerce is taking an abundance of time. So to revert back to that of one’s specialty, knowledge and experience accumulated over time from actual and distinctive participation is most certainly priceless.
