Engage or Die: Why You Might Be Missing Out

Kyle Reed // @kylereed

Every morning you wake up you start to engage in something. Whether that be a conversation with a family member, the radio, a television show, or a social media outlet or possible God, as soon as your eyes open you start to engage.

    Some social media experts say that over the next 10 years a “gaming layer” will become more prominent in social media. Obviously, foursquare has already tapped into this with people competing for Mayorship of a particular location. Thus, the more a person wants to become Mayor of a business, the more times they will go there. Win, Win.
