This weeks summery in the Friday Review talking about the latest happening on Adlandpro and other interesting topics.
Today’s Friday review starts out with a topic that Bill Vanderbilt talked about on Adlanders in FaceBook, where he talked about Adlandpro and the different messages he receives, questioning why he would talk about topics other than business. As was said to him “whats that got to do with business people here on Adland ?”
While many people replied to his post, I would like to clear the air ( so to speak) and the position of Adlandpro. Yes Adlandpro is indeed a business site, but it is also a social network where people can talk about a variety of topics.
Every social community offers options to engage others, like inviting to be friends, contacting and posting on their timelines. In addition to this you are also given ways to control who can contact you and also disable future contacts with a person who is not respecting your wishes like not to be sent offers in the future.
We can’t tell people not to contact others when we offer a means to do that. If we disable such an options, then we will defeat the purpose of social community.
So there has to be a balance.
You can set your profile settings to be accessible only to friends or entirely private.
You can block any person from further contacts by clicking “block this person” button below the message they contacted you with.
You can make your forums only accessible to your friends or only invited individuals.
You can set your forum that it doesn’t allow others to start new threads in it.
Just to let you know I’m always open to suggestions if they can help with creating better experience here.

The Star Fish
Based on the story by Loren Eisley…
I awoke early, as I often did, just before sunrise to walk by the ocean’s edge and greet the new day. As I moved through the misty dawn, I focused on a faint, far away motion. I saw a youth, bending and reaching and flailing arms, dancing on the beach, no doubt in celebration of the perfect day soon to begin.
As I approached, I sadly realized that the youth was not dancing to the bay, but rather bending to sift through the debris left by the night’s tide, stopping now and then to pick up a starfish and then standing, to heave it back into the sea. I asked the youth the purpose of the effort. “The tide has washed the starfish onto the beach and they cannot return to the sea by themselves,” the youth replied. “When the sun rises, they will die, unless I throw them back to the sea.”
As the youth explained, I surveyed the vast expanse of beach, strectching in both directions beyond my sight. Starfish littered the shore in numbers beyond calculation. The hopelessness of the youth’s plan became clear to me and I countered, “But there are more starfish on this beach than you can ever save before the sun is up. Surely you cannot expect to make a difference.”
The youth paused briefly to consider my words, bent to pick up a starfish and threw it as far as possible. Turning to me he simply said, “I made a difference to that one.”
I left the boy and went home, deep in thought of what the boy had said. I returned to the beach and spent the rest of the day helping the boy throw starfish in to the sea.
