A million connections may well seem a lot, but much like eating an elephant it is best tackled by not looking at the whole but saying to yourself. "Which is the best way to eat an elephant?" The answer ... A mouthful at a time.
So here is the break down we have 365 days until 30 July 2011 that is some 8760 hours and that equates to 525600 minutes so if I got two connections a minute I would smash the million connections marker.
it works out at 2740 connections needed a day or 114 per hour.
The control time will be today Friday 30th July at 12pm UK time and connections will be accepted friends on Facebook, Followers on Twitter or followers of this blog, or any other medium used during the next year. A connection will be counted as someone who has made an effort to accept a request or has themselves wished to link to myself.
Now I know that means a person could be connected with me more than once (ie thru a facebook account and twitter and elsewhere) But the goal is to get a million connections.
I think it could well be an interesting adventure during the next year. Who knows what will happen, but it will be interesting to find out what does happen.
