What is a Glitch?
A Glitch is a short lived fault in a system. It is often used to describe a transient fault that corrects itself, and is therefore difficult to troubleshoot.
So who wouldn’t love a great deal, I mean Glitch. Glitches are only good if it isn’t mass publicized. Recently I heard about a Glitch, it was an awesome Glitch. Wetseal.com was giving you $50 off of $50 at checkout. Not only that, it wasn’t a one shot deal and you could do it over and over again, maybe that was the problem? This was my 1st real Glitch that I had found, too bad it was short lived.
Not 2 days went by before emails started being distributed cancelling all orders made within a certain time frame. With the order cancellation emails came an email from the CEO of Wetseal.com, Melanie Cox.
Now we go to social media, as usual, since this is where everything seems to stem from these days. I was browsing around on my iPad when I came across a Facebook group I am member of. This was a Glitch group where anyone could post a Glitch they came across, awesome concept if you ask me. I liked the idea of people helping people benefit from something they found and what better way to do that then social media.
The downfall is when people start taking things from said supposed to be confidential group since that it was you agreed too when you singed up and pass it along and next thing you know it’s all over social media and has gotten so out of control that Wetseals whole entire inventory has been depleted.
At one point the site was so slow I thought it was going to completely crash and who knows it might have. Moral of the story, if you find something that someone has shared with you in a private group leave it there. There is no point releasing it to the world!!! Just like in this case once the system gets overloaded people notice and nobody wins.
My personal opinion
