Triple-Dog-Dare and the Ice Bucket Challenge

Do you remember when you were a child and somebody "double-dog-dared" you? It meant that if you would do whatever deed the "dare" involved the "darer" would do it too. And if it was a "triple-dog-dare" then well, you supposedly had no alternative but to comply. I blogged about the reasons for why I would not participate in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge the other day. My primary reasons were that this had become an event of peer pressure and a level of "one-upmanship" -- could I do the challenge in a way that would get me more "hits" or "likes" on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter or the like. Furthermore, people, who actually donated and didn't just throw ice water over their head so they could post a video, weren't donating because they actually understood the disease, the association, or how the money was used. They were donating because of a "triple-dog-dare." ..»

About Business Directories

A Business directory or business directory is a website or printed listing of information which lists all businesses within some category. Businesses can be categorized by business, location, activity, or size. Business may be compiled either manually or through an automated online search software. Online yellow pages are a type of business directory, as is the traditional phone book.

The details provided in a business directory will vary. They may include the business name, addresses, telephone numbers, location, type of service or products the business provides, number of employees, the service region and any professional associations. Some directories include a section for user reviews, comments, and feedback. Business directories in the past would take a printed format but have recently been upgraded to websites due to the advent of the internet.

Many business directories offer complimentary listings in addition to the premium options. There are many business directories and some of these have moved over to the internet and away from printed format. Whilst not being search engines, business directories often have a search facility.
