Having been born into a family which facilitated buyer/seller exchanges by the hundreds of thousands, it is beyond amazing what insight is collected. Also one develops a unique but informed perspective on what could be skillfully introduced into the commerce system.  Now before I get started, it should be made clear that we through our venture are not out to eliminate jobs in marketing, advertising, lead generation and all that is associated. To the contrary we feel that if our methods are embraced and this hybrid industry takes hold, we strongly feel employment will increase substantially. The opportunities and employment will just look a little different.

Now while humanity proves time and again, the nearest and most efficient path is not always the best one. Over the last century there are all kinds of inventions that  made more sense on paper than the real world was ready for. So how does one know something is going to work and is right for it’s time? Plenty a theory has tackled just this for a very long time, the educated guess is as far as it goes.

So to know where we are to arrive must be propelled by something, the why to our madness. You see every idea has that which empowers, a moment possessing sufficient energy to propel beyond. Ours from that moment has been in the works for some time now, a tribute to all who brought forth the lessons of commerce over many generations to where we are now.

The energy to propel was created by many thoughts and concerns, poor stewardship of the commerce system is one. Lack of attention to true service by the investment banking industry and many portions of our government may be the other. But more-so how we as a society are going through very rough times due to some outdated structures which remain in place, commerce being one of them.

So here we are, developing our well researched and superbly experienced venture into a more direct alignment of consumer and seller. The efficiencies are sound, the execution is amazing, but who will embrace it? In my opinion, all who possess the same energy that began this venture. Those who know well beyond any other time before, the recent past has not served us as well as the future is about to.

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.

Watching all the social internet noise my mind can assimilate, many a thing become clear. One consideration is to imagine the social compared to marriages, friendships and relationships. I’m sure psycho Therapists and alike are having great fun as of late, especially when observing the environments provided. More like ecosystems than any, they structure themselves as to create the actions and behaviors to sustain.

When said ecosystems reach a level of influence upon their users, many become bored and seek to deepen their relationship with. Now normally this is done to expand population and to comfort the financial bottom line through exploitation of. Don’t get me wrong the sites and tools of which I refer are quite attractive and useful to those who frequent. But as stated in earlier posts, many expansions enacted have but one fiscal purpose.

As some expansions of service are well intended, it is very important to balance the offerings and not to “Smother” the relationship. This as mentioned may describe the actions of many who are no longer. Users basically disengage (divorce) from overwhelming feelings like that of a smothered relationship.

Now while the Tech press, bloggers, social media, etc. have glorified the many and much released by Facebook (F8) recently, I have this strange feeling the relationship Facebook just adjusted may have initiated the “smothering” process of which does not usually go well. It’s kinda interesting how a certain type of personality when absent of  healthy relationship experience acquires this habit to smother. Internal feelings that speak “I want so much for this to work out”, I want you so very much”, “please don’t leave me” persist to destroy what may have been a perfectly good relationship.

OK, so we all are aware of (from our own life’s experiences) or been at the giving or receiving end of, but could such notion be applied toward an Internet social enterprise? If from this point of view one considers, it is not unthinkable to notice? Everyone loved the relationship they had in the beginning, what we have now is too much to handle.

As we learn, observe and prepare this extraordinary service called About2Buy.com, It is certain we will leave all guests alone to venture, discover and participate as they will. We will be here to share it with and careful not to push it upon.

“Living free” is unrivaled, Cheers!

 NEWS FLASH: It’s official, there are now more ways to capture a consumer than there are actual consumers. The only way to redirect is for consumers to begin selling access to themselves. Live Free Change Everything at About2Buy.com

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: http://www.wikipedia.org/

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?

Thanks

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.
