SOS is defined as: an urgent appeal for help. Starting online, I used to be one of these people and today, years later I remember and feel the total confusion of new people coming online.
SOS online means “Shiny Object Syndrome.” New people coming online seeking out a business opportunity or a way to start an online business and yes, even sometimes experienced people online fall prey to “Shiny Object Syndrome” which then leads to the original meaning of SOS (an urgent appeal for help).
It is sad and it also kind of reminds me of a shark feeding frenzy when new people start asking for help and asking questions and trying to learn how to work online. They may get 100s to 1000s of people giving their advice on how to blog, how to sell something, how to, how to, etc.
