Size Matters
Review of Long Reviews vs Short Reviews by ryanando

Advantages: I got to use "size matters" before anyone else got there. Long reviews tend to have more info
Disadvantages: some people do just meander aimlessly.

...answer to the question of Long vs Short is that it really depends on the consumer and the product. The long answer is the same with a bit more information on my thought process. Much like the difference between a long review and a short review! ... Read review

Doubt it will raise buckets-full in the long run
Review of Has The Recent Success Of Ice Bucket Challenge Changed The Future Of Healthcare Fundraising? by DodoRabbit

Advantages: Awareness of causes is spread rapidly
Disadvantages: Very often these causes are hidden behind these 'challenges'

The ALS ice bucket challenge. A topic of many people’s debates during the summer, it’s gradually trickling away. I’m pretty much the target audience for this challenge, seeing as I’m a user of many platforms of social media (although I rarely do on it) an ... Read review

Complex life conditions could be simplified!! Think about it...
Review of Is it tougher being a woman? by sully_5

Advantages: lifestyle and gender's roles could be simplified and more balanced even though it isn't easy
Disadvantages: a lot of mess due to the fight men vs women plus some complex problems

It's pretty difficult to argue about this topic since i'm not a woman but it's also funny to notice only women have written reviews concerning it which let me think they would more men involved in the discussion. So i will try to give my personal opinion. ... Read review

Interesting, I think I'd have to read more from you about your points to understand more of what you mean. I understand your language, nicely done :-) , but I guess I don't see enough of your personal thoughts in them since this is a summary. I was going to rate VH but I think it best to say that women' rights in regards to 'progress' are generally well thought of (and how to deal with them) after every major war or events like mass disease, further back then the past century. I guess you mean the Feminism as an standpoint/ideology instead... I don't agree with gender roles... I think a lot of people feel a set of emotions much of the time and confuse it with being them being less emotional or that emotion in general re somehow inferior to intellect and that intellect itself is not an emotion. People just display their emotions differently. It's like when girls are thought of as more 'catty', mean, gossipy yet boys are the same, as indeed are women and men in those behaviours of talking about others, singling out others, grouping up by convenience and bullying.. Women are responsible for creating/maintaining security also both emotional and financial. There are many more single mothers and single from their offspring's infancy rather than widowed later on which is common for single fathers, single parents do all the roles if unsupported. When it comes to safety many a child runs to the mother to hold even if the mother is physically weaker than their father. This is nature as we know it throughout most of the animal 'kingdom' - it's when it comes to ideology and culture that the father figure has taken prominence and indeed dominance. by ladyofflame

Review of Has The Recent Success Of Ice Bucket Challenge Changed The Future Of Healthcare Fundraising? by Pointress

Advantages: Used social media effectively, raised awareness and a lot of money

Well written. By the time the Ice Bucket Challenge got round to me via Facebook, a majority of the people doing it weren't even mentioning the charity (or using actual ice water for that matter!) by cwigham

It's not simply a dream but it's still the truth
Review of Did man land on the moon? by sully_5

Advantages: It's important to understand the truth and seeing actuality to understand our progress
Disadvantages: Thinking man didn't go to the Moon it's a waste of time and it's not useful for the progress

Man on the Moon is a fact that has always been considered between an hoax and a victory for mankind, the latter is actually acknowledged like one of the most important mission accomplished by Americans, and probably the greatest, with their advanced spa ... Read review

Fashion is an art but stay away from unuseful fads!
Review of FASHION: Do you enjoy wearing fashionable clothes or do you think it's all a big rip-off? What do your clothes say about you? by sully_5

Advantages: it's important have the freedom to wear whatever we want, it could exhibit our best side...
Disadvantages: but excesses or fads are a waste of money, resources and it increases poverty

Fashion and fads are controversial topics since the beginning of the twentieth century and also the following globalization where consumerism has become either a trend and also a problem considering the differences between high society and bourgeoisie wit ... Read review

Good pointing out the manufacturing/workers and class issues. So many don't think about the rampant sickness in the economically poor areas whose main income is fabric dye/colour for example and how the couture fashion houses do very well in times of war. I've only bought some socks in almost 2 years so I'm not fashionable :-) by ladyofflame

Change in the short term
Review of Has The Recent Success Of Ice Bucket Challenge Changed The Future Of Healthcare Fundraising? by alliewallie

Advantages: Raises the charity profile, extra donations for the time the fundraiser is viral
Disadvantages: None except that I don't think these kinds of challenge are a long term fix

...Bucket Challenge but because it has mainly happened on the social media sites I haven't caught as much of the hysteria as a lot of people as I don't have a Facebook or Twitter account and I think that's where most of the act ... Read review

My sister is on no social media websites and ended up doing it because someone still nominated her and guilted her into it. I was nominated and ended up paying a tenner to both Macmillan and MND just to get out of it although I was planning on giving the money whether I was nominated or not- I don't mind giving to charity and I do it a lot, but I resented it all a bit... I would give money to charities I believed in regardless. I'm actually a bit scared of what the "next ice bucket challenge" might be... Some great points here.x by Pmshack99

'Numbination'
Review of Has The Recent Success Of Ice Bucket Challenge Changed The Future Of Healthcare Fundraising? by 1st2thebar

Advantages: Personally raised 40K for charitable organisations since 2008
Disadvantages: Charity fads die, but their lasting effect is everlasting to the charity's detriment

Odd that the questioner is purely targeting healthcare; surely the ‘IBC’ is a conscience effort to set a fundraising milieu for Lou Gehrig’s Disease funding? This is evidently, ‘crowd-funding.’ Changing the future is befuddling at the best of times – for ... Read review

interesting by rolandrat123
A definite E here, as this is an angle I hadn't looked at it before. Despite donating to NOT take part, the whole thing upset me as people were feeling under so much pressure to do it. My boyfriend was dreading doing it and was nominated by four people and getting hassled about it so ended up doing it. I was quite lucky in that although I was nominated I just donated instead and people laid off me. I don't mind giving to charity but I resent feeling forced into it - I want to donate to the charities I choose. by Pmshack99

The Latest Viral Fundraising Gimmick.
Review of Has The Recent Success Of Ice Bucket Challenge Changed The Future Of Healthcare Fundraising? by jojodixon

Advantages: An added gimmick raises money quicker.
Disadvantages: How many actually donate?

Will It Change Anything? I don't think that the recent Ice Bucket Challenge will change future fundraising methods, as I don't think the method of adding a gimmick to help raise awareness for a charity is anything new. Before the Ice Bucket Challeng ... Read review

Charity.. or vanity?
Review of Has The Recent Success Of Ice Bucket Challenge Changed The Future Of Healthcare Fundraising? by misspurple7

Advantages: Cheap for charities, quick to catch on and raises cash
Disadvantages: Short lived, lack of research by participants could lead to this being abused, peer pressure.

I remember having having quite heated argument with someone on Facebook some time ago over the reason for everyone changing their profile picture to their favourite childhood character. It was quite a vague answer, supposedly it was to ''raise awareness' ... Read review

Review of Has The Recent Success Of Ice Bucket Challenge Changed The Future Of Healthcare Fundraising? by mikeyc123

Advantages: raised money for charity
Disadvantages: not my idea of fun

Standing or sitting somewhere whilst a bucket of ice water is dumped over you then you nominate three others to do the same in order to raise money (or just to get your 15 minutes of fame). Well I can think of better ways of raising money which don’t invo ... Read review

Creating and developing firearms is essentially a natural human purpose since mankind has always needed a way to stay safe and to survive through better and efficient weapons. Weapons are simply an extension of human's capacity of defense and attack. This ... Read review

Advantages: a lot of business have applied smoke restriction or have prepared a fair service

Review of Has The Recent Success Of Ice Bucket Challenge Changed The Future Of Healthcare Fundraising? by CoffeeQueen68

Disadvantages: The health risks and people who did not donate.

I suggest you research consumptive precipitation before you comment about water wastage. by 1st2thebar
The symbolism of wasting water is far more powerful than the act itself. You'll comprehend that when you get the gist of brand identity/awareness. Don't relate to the use of capitals. by 1st2thebar
