I know it’s not Friday (when I usually post funny things), but I had to post this anyway. This is the funniest website I’ve seen in a long time: What The Fuck Is My Social Media Strategy?
I’m strongly suspicious of people who work in marketing or PR and are trying to “harness the power of social media” or “strengthen the relationship between consumer and the brand”. And people who call themselves social media gurus? Yeah, I’m highly suspicious of them too. Especially if they can’t do anything else, like plan a traditional marketing campaign or design something. (unless you’re Scott Stratten of UnMarketing – the best social media expert/non-expert out there. Follow his tweets and read his blog. It’s good for you.)
Yep, I’m a web designer. So I’m online all day long, and I know a thing or two about the interwebs. But seriously, don’t ask me about how to use Twitter or Facebook for your business, because I honestly believe you shouldn’t.
Next time someone asks me for social media advice, I’m gonna spew out one of the answers from this website.
