Hey Cody, it’s fascinating to read about our social-proof tendency. You’ve shown how important it is to be aware of how we respond and to be careful of how others overuse it — so we don’t do the same.

Great to know what works best to get action in an emergency situation: people will get into action when they’re told what to do.

I can’t stand MLM and how they use social media. I’ve had a few people use it with me. It’s so obvious what they’re doing and it feels insincere and a betrayal of trust, especially when they’re an acquaintance or friend. It makes me want to avoid them.

Cheers for sharing very useful info about this topic Cody :)
