What is a social media expert?
Looking at the wide variety of social media experts, it is easy to quickly become jaded to their assorted value propositions. At the same time, however, there is still the inkling that social media is part of a greater transition from Television, radio, and print media to the web. This transition will occur and it will not simply be a matter of copying content from one staging area to another. The internet is a two (in fact, a multi-way) medium and leveraging this power will require knowledge of social media and how to utilize it. This is where knowledge of social networks and marketing across these channels comes in. There will be a need for social media experts and some will emerge who can create value. Currently, however, we are still in the starting stages of this transition and many of these â€˜expertsâ€™ have little more than a couple of months more knowledge and experience than their customers.
