Pete,

This is a wonderfully thoughtful post. You could also write a follow-up, "Why Do We Accept." FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) would top that list.

In fact, FOMO made me jump into MyBlogLog recently, even though (it turns out) I didn't find it all that useful, now that I'm in.

So in that case, FOMO has given rise to "WWTBD" (What Was the Big Deal?) and has made me shy to pull the trigger on commiting to Twitter.

Pete-
I think we often recommend as a means of validating our own use of a product. If I can persuade others to use it and they have a positive experience, then I'm validated in using it myself.
Plus, then I have bragging rights for having turned them on to it.

        Brands I love. Brands I probably need to stay away from.
