Pay Per Boom
may created a Dumb Ass Marketing to Boomers Award. DAMBA.
And the DAMBA goes to…
This is laughable. Another “new social network” launched. Boomersnetwork.com. How many is this now Savvy Boomer?
Here’s the really funny part: they want Boomers to PAY $19 to join.
Of course, this was done for our “comfort” and to protect us from nasty comments, ads and spammers. Boy, we sure do need help with that. After all, we just can hardly figger out this internets. All those tubes and everything.
So far the over 40 crowd has not caught the big wave of social networking. The creators of Boomers Network feel one reason for this is the commercialization of the free sites and the fact that this group of people are not interested in all of the applications that draw the younger crowds.
Never mind the pictures that are stretched, the grammatical errors, the punctuation errors, and the typos. These people win the award just on their sheer ignorance of the marketplace.
“How many is this now Savvy Boomer?”
I’ve given up counting-it’s well over 20 though.
Let me get this straight.
Sign up-pay $29 or $19 but you can cancel in the 1st 30 days. But they still want my credit card # or paypal #. And I’m supposed to sign up and there is nothing to tell me who they are or even let me look around without giving my financial info?
“That’s right folks. Sign up, give us your financial info and just trust us-after all, you’re just another dumb boomer who has a lot of money that you can’t wait to spend.”
This is either a scam or, as you stated, an attempt to start a website by people who have no clue.
Thanks Savvy. You said what I was thinking about scam. It’s such a poorly done site, looks like it was done in an afternoon.
Say what you will, but I checked out boomersnetwork.com myself and found it to be a great site. There are not all these ads blinking in your face trying to sell you something. On most sites a person can hardly tell what is part of the site and what is an ad. On this site everything is arranged so a person can easily navigate. I like that! It is also very pleasing to the eye, unlike others I’ve visited. Keep in mind that this site is new so I’m sure there will be some changes. There always is when something is first starting out. Quit dogging and wait and watch. Good things come to those who wait!
@Didd: I’ll dog a website that goes live with typos and grammatical errors. I’ll dog a website that wants to charge access without giving me a sample. I’ll dog a website that may be nothing more than a phishing site to grab financial information.
Dog away! To each his own. Obviously everyone is not as perfect and grammatically correct as you. I would venture to say most people are not. It takes all kinds to make the world go round! Oh yeah, ’tis the season, Merry Christmas!
I never held myself out as perfect: by the same token, I’m not trying to collect $19 from you to visit here.
BTW: I’m muslim.
And I’m not trying to collect $19 from you to visit there. And I’m Christian! It’s just my nature to be friendly to all no matter what their religion or belief, hence the Merry Christmas. Not meant to offend.
@didd: and I’m a bullshitter! 🙂
