On a recent trip to New York, I was lucky enough to be invited to discuss the internets with a most important member of the United Nations, who wanted to find out more about how emailing and websites worked.

One of the things that excited him most was socialist media, and I realised that it was some time since I had provided an authoritative update on this blog.

Socialist Media is one of the hottest things in the online world at the moment:  some would say it is even more important than the proper use of Meta Keywords, although they are wrong.

Getting Socialist Media right might seem complicated, however it is becoming more widely understood by experts and some of them are reporting great success from using Twitting as part of their strategy.

The difference between SOE and Socialist Mediums


  • Is done by computers
  • Uses PageRanks to decide what you want to see
  • Is only available from the Googler
  • Gives more money to few people
  • Costs from £35

Socialist Mediums

  • Is done by people in a room
  • Can be bought from MySpace, Twitting, and The Facebook
  • Uses EgoRank to decide who is best
  • Distributes wealth on an equal basis
  • Costs from £75

How Socialist Media Works

Socialist Mediums all work by voting on the basis of the number of words in a document and the amount of time it took to produce.  Because people in socialist mediums own the means of production, they are awarded an equal share:

How Socialist Media Works

In most socialist media, the content is created by a team of experts who then submit it to the committee as a draft proposal for first stage approval.

Approval is done by a simple voting system of yes and no.  Once a score has been calculated, the initial document can either be passed through to the computer programme, or alternatively passed back to the writers for any required amendments to be made.

Although socialist mediums are based on an equal voting system, members of the inner circle and politburo groups have a slightly higher weighting, and can normally pass documents unamended.

Assuming that the document is passed by the first committee, it is passed onto a computer programme that uses either the EgoRank or AwesomeRank algorithm to give it a final score.

If the score is more than 5, the draft document is made converted into a Diktat, and released to the community.  If the final score is less than 5, the document is discarded.

The final score determines how many people will see the Diktat.  A very popular approval may be read by more than 100 people, whereas a document with limited scope will normally be confined to around 5-10 members.
