It is fascinating (and also annoying) to me how many people consider themselves “Social Media Experts”. Another is popular one is “Life Coach.” What qualifies you?
I don’t consider myself an expert on anything. Even the things that I am the most savvy, I have a lot to learn and yet I notice people that clearly appear to know less then I do are “Gurus.”
I respect true “Experts” and “Coaches” I admire and want to learn from them. I find it irresponsible and also annoying for people to claim to be an expert or coach when they do not have any real credentials to back it. I also find that in many cases it is just to exploit people that are less informed.
Great post by Peter Shankman "Is your social media expert really an expert?" http://ow.ly/hc5h
