Quechup dating dating of stock option

At some point in the not-so-distant future, the dust will settle and there will be winners and losers (Quechup anyone?

) when it comes to the networks most of us leverage.

This means avoiding the temptation to hyper fixate on one venue thinking it's a replacement for another.

But what's becoming increasingly clear to most of us—is that like the original media fragmentation, the social version of it will be no less challenging to initiate, maintain and nurture.

We're all going to have to get used to multiplicity—or simply having a few more pebbles in the pond.

Now, invites pour in from Yahoo360, Facebook, and others. The newest—and, apparently, the most onerous—is Quechup, a dating site that morphed into a social network run by i Date out of England.

Successful personal and corporate brands alike will be the ones who take a holistic view when creating, maintaining and amplifying their ripples.

But you don't have to be a mega brand to appreciate what's going on in this space.
