Why I Quit Triberr

Delete.I deleted my Triberr account the other day. I had been debating the deletion for several weeks, and I finally had had enough. I was tired of being in a tribe that seemed to be in a stalemate. I was tired of feeling guilty for not sharing posts on a regular basis. I was tired of feeling guilty for not reading my tribe mates’ posts.

Thus, I deleted my account. It has been freeing. It’s been nice not to have to check Triberr on an almost daily basis, and it’s been nice not to worry about missing somebody’s post.

I know that some people have had great success with Triberr, and I’m not arguing the value of it or the success people have had with it. It has value, just not for me at this point in time. Since it isn’t providing value, I’ve cut it. If I’ve learned anything from the past two years of being in business and failing in business, it’s that I have to cut the platforms and tools that don’t serve a purpose. If the platform or the tool doesn’t serve a purpose, it is a distraction. It impedes me from what I need to be doing.

What about you? Have you cut a tool or platform because it didn’t have or no longer served a purpose?

I agree. I read how it was a great self promotion so I rushed to it. First off it is a technical nightmare. The screen doesn't even look right. Then I searched through tribes. I'm a conservative writer. Nothing wrong with the Tom Robbins types but that isn't me and no point in me looking or being in that  type of tribe. I couldn't find a like minded group. Then I looked at a few comments of a few tribes. A lot of it was dribble. And one whiner about how not everyone was posting and sending---well when I looked at a lot of the nauseating litany I wouldn't have sent many comments to my followers either.

  Also twitter seems to be catching on to it as a spam from what I read. I have no idea if my sources were credible but I'm not going to be directed I must send everyone's tweet to my followers and view it every day---I get a lot of my comments spread through retweeting---and will continue to do so.

  So I was on Triberr for a day and cancelled it the next. That's my nickel's worth.

@Charles Hurst Author  I actually rejoined Triberr a few months ago with the thought it might be a means to create a community, but it didn't work that way. I haven't been back in about two weeks and am afraid of the slew of posts I'd have to delete. I may just let it go again. All it seems to do is create a sense of being heard, but a sense isn't the same thing as being heard. 

With one of my other projects, my collaborator and I haven't used Triberr at all. We've still built a solid following without the amplification, but that might be because we both have strong networks of people.
