    Considering all the bots there are and people out there offering 1000's of FB likes and tweets. How much of the internet that actually looks legit is really just a bunch of lies? I would assume quite a bit of it.

    Then I start to think about the offline world. These online tactics dont just work in the digital world. Marketing was created long before computers were conceived. So much of our world is a facade. It seems the people who know this the best are the ones making money off of it.

    Now with so much stuff like this going on you almost have to use the same tactics just to contend with the rest of the competition. Which is fine by me but its just funny how this has all come about.

    I have noticed a lot of people on this site are here trying to find some kind of uber secret that is going to make them a small fortune in a weeks time. They still have not realized that no matter your strategy everything requires work and patience as well as some friggin common sense. Get over your laziness and just do it! They are perfectly fine with spending days and days searching for the uber secret but then when you suggest actually working for days and days their faces solidify into a vision of pure dread and they shove their head into the ground. Whats even funnier than that is that even though they have done this research and learned some of the tricks of the trade I still see them falling for those same tricks. Have they learned nothing?! I guess not

    This is just a rant I couldn't hold back anymore...

    No, you 're looking at it wrong. The world is what it is, it 's your understanding of it that needs to adjust to the world, not the other way around.
