    It used to be stuffing envelopes…

    I used to think that certain members were lonely shut-ins with nothing to do, no friends, creating topics with usually comment-less links, equating responses and views to popularity.

    How naive I was.

    Now I'm told they get paid to promote discussions on internet forums to drive traffic to those sites to increase their ad revenue - all from the comfort of their homes.

    Or are in some cases shills for the online versions of newspapers.

    How much do they make? How can we all get in on this action? Who has experience in this?

    You didn't really believe SouthBeach bought the crap he polluted these forums with, did you? All that made up right wing crap posing as headlines.

    And the practice is common. My partner had a prof in grad school (film) who essentially blackmailed his students into spamming discussion boards whenever he had a new film coming out.

    I'd say a majority of comments from FB, blogs, and news sites.. They're all shills. Most people don't give a fuck about current news/politics. They're more concerned about the next iphone or who won this season's survivor.

    Really? I thought my friends and family were just pushing their own political agendas - and cat memes.

    If true, I guess Facebook will NEVER give an option to hide any post with a link from one's newsfeed - too much lost revenue.

    Oddly, my sister LIKES getting her news from her Facebook friends. (Kind of like how some people prefer to get their news from RealJock - including celebrity deaths through RealJock, which is the only conceivable reason I can think of for members to rush to post that sort of stuff.) But that's because she doesn't watch any network or cable news or subscribe to any newspapers.

    I get news from various other sources and read through my RSS feeds. I'll share interesting news with certain friends and acquaintances once in a while. But I'm not a serial news poster. Most of the shit I post is food porn or local events/concerts. Really, FB for me and friends is just a time killer. Not a place to get educated in politics or learn about world events.

    It really is unfortunate that most people get their news from FB. It just becomes one big echo chamber amongst your friend list.
