The anonymous Twitter account @amandachapel takes great joy in critiquing social media luminaries and serving as a contrarian voice in the echo chamber of social media. While this person can be caustic and take personal shots at people, I find the industry commentary and most of her questions to be of value.
Just this morning she posed four questions on Twitter that I think are worth exploring in greater detail. Since @amandachapel doesn’t maintain an active blog, I’ll take the initiative to host the discussion here. I just ask that everyone maintains a civil discourse here. If you violate that tenet, I’ll remove your comments.
QUESTION: 1. What is the basis of the belief that indiscriminate empowerment is a good thing?
QUESTION: 2. What is the basis of the belief that indiscriminate communications is a good thing?
QUESTION: 3. What’s the basis for the belief that the unleashed unfettered unencumbered social groupings that form online are a good thing?
QUESTION: 4. What are the economic consequences of a society devoid of the ability to produce scale?
Feel free to answer any or all of these.
