Poll: Has social media changed investing...

Has social media changed investing for the better, or worse?


With information sharing to social networks, the level of information we know about CEO's, board member's, influences by twitter posts, consumers able to start social campaigns against companies, products and people, or for them...


What say you, are we better or worse off as investors in this social day of age? And why?

FIRE in 2031 @ 50yrs old (+/- 2yrs) w/ a hypothetical $2.5mil portfolio, 3 appreciated homes worth $1.0mil and rental income to fund my gap years until RMD. Assets will go to an inherited IRA where I plan on watching the investments grow until I die or the trust gets executed.

Social media has been disastrous in many ways. Negatives far outweigh positives.
