Would have been more impressive had he worn his t-shirt

Zuckerberg hot seat
So is Mark Zuckerberg’s message, “Only dress up when you’re in the hot seat?”


Would have been more impressive (to me) had he worn his signature t-shirt.

That’s his brand statement.

Why deviate?

Sure, there’s a time and a place for everything.

Yet there’s literally an exception to every rule.

Facebook work

Disney Customer Service Speaker jeff noel
Does anyone care about last week’s closing keynote speech to 600 International Guests – and the standing ovation? No.

Does anyone care that i had an all-expenses-paid trip to Montreal and got to run through the city before flying home? No.


Facebook work, also known as our job or our career.

Is Facebook a hack (a “short-cut cheat” for avoiding the hard work, and risk, of creating our own platform – owning and managing a domain name – on our very own piece of digital real estate?

Do we really want to rely on our Facebook friends to become better informed about our world? (Because some of our friends have the time to act as curators, and they post what they think their “audience” will appreciate and enjoy)

Do we really want to push our world view on our friends without ever having their permission (because we never ask, “Would you like to hear what i think about ______?)?

Do we have any idea why we use Facebook, or have we just been swept up in the socially popular current and never creating our own personal vision of how and why we use Facebook (versus our own domain/website)?

And what about all our friends who we are not (for whatever reason) connected with? Does that mean we aren’t friends, or does it mean that we are not good friends?

Who is personal Facebook for?

Business meeting at Publix
A colleague and a close friend.


Personal Facebook was designed for close friends to stay connected. A brilliant way to maximize the potential of social media.

Unfortunately, humans, generally speaking, are needy people. Few people would turn down the opportunity to be popular and liked by lots of people.

This led to the Friending of more people than we can manage.

Over time, we also realize that no one really cares about our intimate details.

No one that is, except our friends.

We get friends and aquintences and colleagues mixed up, thinking it’s all the same.

If you’ve ever made excuses that have cost you, and have caused you deep regret

Facebook Fan Page under-developed marketing
How do we feel when we are asked to do something and the only reason is because it will benefit someone else?


under-developed marketing often is the only standard many know (and use)
Would even a small amount of backstory, or description help us understand why we should act?


If you’ve ever made excuses that have cost you, and have caused you deep regret, and yet you still hold onto hope that it’s not over yet, and if you have been searching for a long time for the permission to change – to act differently than in your past life…

PS. Excuses, regrets, opportunity, and permission? Story of my life.

Toughen Up Children

Are you on Facebook? One of my friends, blessed with a higher education and a serious career, just joined Facebook a few days ago. This morning, she had 8 Friends.

Not everyone is on Facebook. That is, not everyone over 30. Nearly everyone under 30 is.

This update came through last night and and I followed a comment link to 11 rules kids will not learn in school, but should.

We often hear adults complain about the younger generations, and that children need to toughen up.

Well guess who influenced these children?

Maybe we should be saying, “Toughen up adults. Lead the way, don’t get in the way.”

What do you think?

Think about it. I’m heading over to jeffnoel.com

PS. Rule #1 – Life is not fair.
