The Social Consumer and #InfluencerNetworking.

The highly recommended app, Status.People has a nice blog that’s worth a read.

One fine article is entitled,

“Disruptive Capitalism: The Rise of the Social Consumer

and most definitely worth a read.

You see, Keith Gill, AKA Digital Keith seems to think people are powerless and beholden to corporations.



It’s such servile people as Keith Gill that would leave you readily abused by people like himself and the other abusive people at EmpireKred, Nance Larson, Chris Sandys and Gareth Davies.

Consumers aren’t helpless.

EmpireKred leadership should have known this, and simply not tried to keep abuse of their customers “off the record.”

They should have never allowed the abuse, and once reported they should have immediately stopped it.

That they didn’t, and still continue to engage in retaliatory acts speaks volumes of their lack of social media business acumen.

Avoid Empirekred until such abusive leadership is removed, Nance Larson is off staff, and their management is reformed.

Avoid EmpireKred until someone acknowledges past misdeeds and can honestly say the perpetrators have no formal or informal role with EmpireKred and they have been removed from the virtual premises.

The CA DoJ opened an inquiry into Twitter when the abusive leaders of Empire Avenue (now Empirekred) exported their trolling, threats and doxing onto Twitter.

There is a consequence for being known as having a “Goon Squad“, after all.

Over 5 posts on my blogs I documented issues with Empire Avenue, from their rogue volunteers, running a “wall of shame” on Brands, attacking Brands reputations online, not answering complaints, having a “goon squad” of endorsed volunteers attacking customers who complained, refusing to discipline internally thereby encouraging more attacks on Brands, etc. What I witnessed was the worst travesty in the annals of customer service I have ever seen. After a month of private discussions with EA to change things, I went public. Only then did they begin to change, but the attacks on me and others grew by their “goon squad.” In the end, I went to EA’s Angel Investor and EA had to shut down its Chat Room and Chat Mod “goons squad.” EA shamelessly has never apologized or produced it damning chat logs as promised by their CEO. This is one of those posts, you can read the rest by Search in the upper right for ‘Empire.’ Don’t play EA or if you do save your REAL money.
