I wonder where the people went, and whether marketing could get those people back...

I guess there would be demographic information about who those people were. Their average income, level of education, the average length of time they had spent in seeking / receiving psychiatric treatment.

I guess the population, here, evolved over time. Right back at the beginning of the Meds board it seemed to be primarily clinicians. Then, over time, less clinicians and and more patients. And so on...

It would be hard to pin down when to capture, if that makes sense...

I don't think marketing could get those people back. I don't think those were the people who were so susceptibe to marketing.

I don't think that people have a sense of the internet providing the same degree of anonymitity that it once did. I think people are much more aware now that what they have to say is much more likely to be viewed by their employer and so on. I don't think people feel as free to post personal stuff anymore...

And because more people are on the internet than there used to be people are hunkering dowm more in small groups.

And also... I think maybe financial incentive runs against a place like Babble... Babble (for a time there) had word of mouth as something that got people wanting to try certain meds... I wonder whether Babble itself was a form of marketing for pharma... One that has now outlived it's... Utility. I suspect the meds board came to be and went... And something like that. I don't know.

Is there really nothing like Babble Meds used to be?

What was it, to you? What are you seeking?
