Today’s subject is one that I am actually very reluctant to touch upon, as I sometimes feel like I may play a part in the phenomenon in the first place, yet as the saying goes, even online it aint easy, and I will have to take theÂ initiativeÂ to give a clear mindedÂ analysisÂ of the matter, to bring greater awareness to it, and offer effective remedies for the greater good as we move into a new decade of growth and expansion here at

Speaking from a purely economical reasoning standpoint, I will be as bold to say that the concept of whoring is one that has always existed in society, for better or worse, and the specific emphasis of this post in regards to the actual payoffs that come with the style of whoring known as attention whoreing.
I am aware of the increasing desire for self reliance in society, and believe it is actually one of the greatest by products of the Internet and its ability to empower those who wish to strive for success on their own terms.
The dangers that result from what I can see, is when you have a blind leading the blind scenario, in which individuals are seen behaving like the rest of the group, without any reflection on the hows and whys, and only have the reason of everyone is doing it, as a means to explain their own behavior, known as a herd mentality.
With that said, lets just focus on supply and demand, which even the most novice of business person can comprehend.
One day, you went out into the world to earn some money to be able to afford the things that you like, and you decided to go out and have a meal at a restaurant that you thought you might enjoy.
As you were waiting in line to be seated, you got the feeling that the attendants at the establishment were there to have you come to the location and make them feel important.
When the time came for you to be seated, the hostess began to talk about all of the things that were going on in her life outside of the workplace, and placed the responsibility of consoling her unto you, as the paying customer.
After finishing with that duty, the waitress came to your table, and instead of asking you about what you wereÂ interestedÂ in having, she began ask you about how her hair and makeup looked, and sat with you at the table so that she could listen to your comments, all the while neglecting to take your order, or even let you know what was available by offering you a menu as she was preoccupied with more important matters like the back and forth conversation that she was having on Twitter via a cool smart phone.
You finally figured out a way to get your order in, and you finished your meal, the waitress came to your table, and requested some more of your time and attention , to reassure her that she was better looking than all of the other waitresses in the restaurant, and in closing, requested that you leave a generous tip for her, for the excellent job of serving her own needs for some attention and praise which again, was provided by you as the paying customer.
Even if you did pay for the meal and left a tip, chances are, you would not return again, and would tell your friends and associates about the extremely unpleasant experience that you had, so that they would be sure to not patronize the establishment as well, which could possibly lead to an increase in the current unemployment rate in America.
The moral of theÂ storyÂ rests in the question of who’s needs are of the higher priority, the server, or the paying customer that seeks to be served, and is willing to compensate the server and establishment for excellent service ?
I am confident enough in the fact that you can put together the proper order of operations in business, that I will simply leave the answer in your hands to answer for yourself, and simply state that it is most likeley the same for everyone else, and if you are an individual who is seeking some form ofÂ successÂ in any business venture in which you expect to be compensated, you would simply follow the steps of how you yourself would wish for things to be, as the person who is offering the compensation for the services rendered, or even more simply put, do unto others as you would have them due unto you.
If your self esteem is somewhat low, follow what they in the business world call the platinum rule, which is to treat others BETTER than you would have them treat you.
Anything less is a by product of poor management, and a lack of sound pimpformation, which would usually result in an individual having to settle for a lonely life on the internet social curcuit which does not usually cost any money to use, while at the same time, also does not pay any money to you for the time andÂ energyÂ spent there other than some emotional gratification from comments and kudos, so that you can not enjoy the things that youÂ ordinarilyÂ buy or do , if you had theÂ monetaryÂ means which can only come through serving the needs of paying customers effectively.
Now for some educational and thought provoking humor.
Here is some interesting dialouge that I aquired today from my

Jerry Butler I’ve been kind of embarassed lately at some of the comments some of my female friends get. It’s like “use your head, dumbass. Yeah, she’s real impressed by the fact you can drop the f-bomb several times in a posting.” Just delete the jerks. But I guess if you think it would be for the best to leave, we’d hate to see you go.

James Potter I like Facebook for the fact you choose who you accept as a friend and the amount of information given out. If someone says something inappropiate then you can delete them, if it was just that easy in real life !
