Wes Donehue Hits A Nail On The Head

If You Have A Website, You’re Out of Date” FJ
I’ve been saying for a while now that, “If you have a website, you’re out of date.” Ok, ok…I admit this phrase is a tad extreme but I’m trying to make a point. A more accurate line may be, “If ALL you have is a website, you are out of date.”

What prompted this post is when I saw my friend Wesley’s video about the subject. Wesley hits the nail on the head in a lot of ways. If you watch it you’ll notice he’s in the political arena so you may not recognize the names he mentions. Nevertheless, you’ll get the idea.

I agree with him that the public has chosen where it wants to be. Facebook is where everyone is “set up” and comfortable. These days having a Facebook account is not far from having a drivers license…everyone has one. I’ve dabbled in other social networking sites too and they just don’t seem to have legs. For example, the general population just isn’t interested in setting up a Ning account.

Further, Facebook provides folks with a captive audience. You don’t have to fight for Google placement for attention like you do with a website.
To be quite frank about it blogs may not be far behind websites in terms of going the way of the dodo bird. However, the difference here is that websites are “static” and sit there whereas a blog is a person’s frequent candid thoughts that can go viral….via Facebook.

The reason I even blurt the words, “If you have a website, you’re out of date” is because people are sometimes adamant about not opening a Facebook account. When I say it, folks think of Facebook in a different manner. The phrase works…and they hop on (and love it).
Good for Wesley for throwing this video out there. It’s pretty much right on…
