Is seamless sharing the wave of the future? You bet it is. The major social networking platforms are all doing it whether you realize it or not. Does seamless sharing ruin sharing? Most would say no, but most don’t have the ability to think it through from a variety of viewpoints. If you are in a position where everything you do is broadcast whether it is your wish for that or not – that is not sharing. There isn’t even implied intimacy in seamless sharing. It’s just scraping data and broadcasting it to the world.
In SEO, the people that do that are the most talentless cellar dwellers that face ostracism in most cases – deserved or not. They are seen as the hacks of hacks – and there is nothing positive about that. In social networking for some reason, they are billionaires. The difference is nothing more than perception. Statistics say most people have no clue just how little of their life is private anymore – unless seamless sharing tells them so on their news feed.
Privacy is a thing of the past, and Facebook despite much posturing, has always been fairly clear in their belief that one day, everything everyone does will be played out online. A few years ago even, that seemed ridiculous. Ask an SMM or SEO however how much they can tell you about someone from what is automatically posted to their networks, and you can see that seamless sharing has brought closer to that prophesized reality than ever before.
