Continuing the series on the existing Social Networks and how they are being used by the PiercingMetal outlet. This is Trig.com.
TRIG.com: Trig has been a site that goes up and down and for the last few months it seems that “down” is the side that is winning. It might be safe to assume that this site for music networking and fan interaction’s days are numbered or are already over. That will be a shame if that becomes the case since it was OK for the most part. I just didn’t use it enough outside of adding many people and directing them to the main website writing. Since the last three times that we tried to access the account failed us, we assume that its gone and have removed the original reference link to the site in this narrative for good measure. Clicking it doesn’t bring up anything and there is not even a Wikipedia entry for the brand identity. When I was able to access it I did like it and felt that I successfully sent some of the subscribers over to the main site. Hopefully they also added themselves to our Facebook or MySpace site page because before it became unreliable as a medium, my account, which was a PiercingMetal.com one, had over 2000 “friends”.
The reality of the Trig.com and Woozyfly.com brands just going away out of the blue with little fanfare makes me feel all the more strongly about this next viewpoint. While all of this stuff is nice to have and to utilize; if you want to truly project your own voice as loud as possible and be one that makes a difference with your passions you need your own enterprise domain or blog site.
