I’ve tried hard to not call myself a social media marketing expert or guru or master or rock star. What I haven’t done is correct others when they have. And I haven’t done a very good job of letting people know what I really am. That’s all about to change.
Two weeks ago I made Feedly the home page for Firefox on my desktop computer. I wanted to see if it would bring some value back to the RSS feeds I had subscribed to in the past. It did.
Most of the time, I don’t want the world to know where I am, but I do want my phone to know. So, that makes me wonder. I wonder how many others are like me? I wonder if the technorati’s use of Foursquare will really translate to the general population?
Yesterday, Jeremiah Owyang made the following comment on Twitter, “For now, Plancast.com is pure of marketers and brands, just the early adopters. I’m sure they will sign up soon.” I had to laugh when I read it. Of course I knew what he meant, but “pure” is a relative term. And while the real “marketers and brands” may not be there, the marketing and sales behavior began only minutes after I signed up.
