The nature of social media? Bullshit. The nature of social media doesn’t have much to do with good business practice obviously in this instance. With modern technology one would expect good open and clear communication with your customers instead of the silence, excuse laden explanations (only provided as a bandage when the bleeding gets too much to bear). Poor business practice, running too lean and financial pressure or problems is more likely to be the truth. I feel like we are being lied to and that this is the beginning of the end. I don’t really want that to be true however the longer this goes on the less confidence I have to believe otherwise. The $ I would be out for the lifetime subscription (at the premium I paid for it and shipping being in Canada) wouldn’t break me however I would miss sitting down to hold the latest issue and experience what a good magazine is like. A lot of us grew up with the many car magazines that we would buy from the newsstand and eagerly waited for the next issue. Now they’re all gone and all we have are these electronic devices that don’t have the same feel. So here we sit still listening to the crickets and watching for the mailman.
