How many clues will it take for you to identify this “product”?

Here we go:

Anyone can get it. Probably. But they don’t.

Some people say it’s not for everyone.

Some people say it’s fake.

There are so many copies of it that the brand has really been diluted.

People charge for it, but it’s free.

Its most vocal customers are obnoxious and don’t usually understand it at all.

Its biggest experts don’t even have it.

Rich people can’t afford it.

It can connect you to people or cause you to lose all your friends and family.

Customer testimonials are frequently dismissed.

If you add it to an existing business or product, you’ll attract a lot of people but drive away a lot of people.

It has brick and mortar locations as well as virtual locations.

It can be a career or a passion or a hobby or a mask that hides, well, a LOT.

Some people have it but never admit it.
