Sounding Off

Sorry for the interruption to normal service, but I just wanted to get a few things off my chest. Hope you don’t mind, and normal service will be resumed tomorrow with a great guest post from Christina Kingston. So…

  • To the douchebags on the train that insist on using the external speakers of their iPods, at least put some decent music on. If I must be subjected to your unplugged iPod, can it be something other than the crap you play?
  • To the Internet famous who continuously say, “It’s not about me, it’s about you”, start meaning it. Frequently pimping your book, upcoming book, friend’s book, sharing links that just include you and boasting of your numbers (even though it’s “not about the numbers”, right?) just makes you look the exact opposite of what you’re saying. Enough already, please.
  • To the consultants that say you can’t measure the ROI of social media properly, quit BS’ing your clients and tell them the truth. Of course you can – if it can be deployed, it can be measured for ROI. And yes, that includes financially.
  • To the Twitter specialists who say what you should and shouldn’t tweet about – it’s 140 characters, for crying out loud. There are no rules for Twitter – get over it!

Okay, that’s better. Thanks for letting me unload a little, I appreciate it. How about you – anything you want to sound off about? Comments are yours.
