Is Social Media Crowdsourcing Making Us Lazy? You’ve become lazy. You’re no longer smart. You’re a shadow of the clever person you really could be. Managing the Internet message The Internet can be a daunting challenge for advertising firms. There are hundreds of blogs filled with praises and rants, widgets on websites bustling with tweets and mobile videos that can cloud a consumer’s perceptions about a company.
