If you call yourself a social media Guru, I would hope you would be on Twitter.
Eh, Twitter’s a sucker’s game. us really social media guru’s have a solid presence on MySpace. It’s coming back baby! Get ahead of the curve!
Got any handy tips for raising search rankings on Alta Vista?
I’m pretty sure that you need an ‘SEO Ninja’ for that. Social media gurus are all about, y’know, social, man. It’s important to keep your self-important ‘new economy’ parasites classified.
And you’ve probably got a Klout score.
I’m wondering if we could somehow wire all those gurus in parallel and put them in amniotic pods and use them as a power source.
Very dangerous. They’d be more likely to be a power sink.
sort of reminds me of the joke i saw last week on twitter: “how many SEO consultants does it take to screw SEO sex download teens porn cheap cigarettes viagra…”
Sure, 181,000… but aren’t there something like 500+ million accounts?
All that context shows is an average of around 2000 fake accounts/bots per “guru”
and 98 million other people who only have 1 or 2 old accounts/fake accounts each
When “guru” becomes mis-used to this extent, people start calling themselves yogis. Then everyone gets confused and sees the Hanna-Barbera logo in their minds eye and the “big movement”, whatever it was, collapses.
People come to gurus — they don’t need to advertise. It’s akin to calling yourself “classy”.
Agreed, and this man came to mind as I read your comment.
