Lured By Sammy Simpson's Great Ideas
Like these: People are brought together through a variety of shared interests through social-networking sites like LinkedIn, Twitter, Bebo, Facebook, and Myspace. Such sites promote the person and the relationships they have with friends who are connected with them.
Some people have hundreds, even thousands of connections linked to them. However, experts believe that about 150 “friends” is as far as our capacities can take us. Gen Y research has shown that 1 in 5 even say they have "best friends" through these sites which they have never met!
Solicit listeners with 150 friends or more to participate in a Social NetWORTH contest/promotion.
Have them make you a friend for their page, so you can view all of their connections. Randomly choose someone from their list and put the two "friends" together on the phone.
Now, have them participate in a "How well do you know me?" quiz. For each answer the friend can answer, they win cash or a prize.
