The Milgram experiments are a classic example of "appeals to authority," too -- the test subjects would often defer responsibility. Fascinating look into human behavior.

2 weeks ago on SnapChat and Building Community Where Your Audience is
@Eleanor Pierce While the ship has sailed for Facebook to offer an ad-free version, I think there's a place for freemium and premium social networks.
@Eleanor Pierce Actually, this brings up a spinoff question: are there any social networks/apps that, by design, are impervious to brands?
Path comes to mind. Secret. Whisper.
@biggreenpen @Eleanor Pierce SHUSH.
@Eleanor Pierce @biggreenpen See, I'm a Instagram--> Facebook cross-poster. *shrug*
From where I sit, I think apps/platforms like SnapChat are emerging to give an ephemeral social media experience with minimal intrusion from brands. SnapChat won't ever become as ubiquitous as Facebook, but that's not really the point, is it?
It's certainly an uphill battle, but a noble and worthwhile one.

@ginidietrich @makeaner1 Yeah - they saw the value of Google+ early on and got to building out a presence quickly. Interestingly, they're not promoting FB in the CTA at the bottom of the post. Just Google+ and Twitter.

@ginidietrich I have them now and again. #evenabrokenclockisrighttwiceaday
@ginidietrich @creativeoncall I think the difference is you *led* with community. Once it's there, you can't shut it down without serious problems.
@creativeoncall Aye. Like others have noted, the spam reasoning seems to be pretty weak. Copyblogger content is well-written, researched, and useful, but I think it's pretty clear that building a thriving, engaged community was a primary objective. This discussion would be taking on a whole new direction if there were actually a community to speak of.
Diff'rent strokes for diff'rent folks, right?
I've read Copyblogger for years and I've never left a comment on one of their posts. The tone and style of their team's writing style (and guest contributors, for that matter) don't often encourage active participation and dialogue, but Copyblogger content gets distributed far and wide and referenced in new blog posts. Comments aren't central to their business model, IMO, especially as they've moved from a blog into a media and product company.
@chelpixie I think you nailed it.
@RobBiesenbach I have to try that.
