If you have a blog (and you probably do if you’re reading this one), you’ve likely come into contact with social-media experts. Now, let me be clear, I’m not discussing the real experts out there. I’m sure they exist and have a lot to offer.
But … with the web functioning by and large as an unregulated industry, one has to wonder what makes all the people who want to help me advance my social-media skills experts? Someone in my inbox even called himself a social media guru. And he claimed to have the expertise to transform any given platform overnight. Fascinating.
Then, there are those who DIRECT. They can be found not only in my spam folder, but Facebook and other venues. Don’t ever forget to link to … How could anyone disagree that … This is written not as an opinion, but THE LAW.
I have been on social media for quite a bit and have never been so inundated with expert advice. Or commanded to do certain things. Whatever happened to PLEASE?
So, in case the social media guru (or his expert colleagues) reads this, I looked up the definition of expert. Just in case, you know, there’s any confusion.
Word of mouth: is how I usually seek recommendations on experts or anything else. How about you?
