Frisky Rant: Stop Calling Social Media Managers “Professional Tweeters”

frisky-rant-social-media-managers-professional-tweeters

I met a man last night who, upon telling him that I’m a Social Media Manager, replied by saying, “So you’re a professional tweeter. Aren’t all girls?” Not only was his comment sexist and untrue (so don’t even get me started on that), but if I were a goddamn professional tweeter, I would have said “I’m a professional tweeter.” Oh, and by the way, that’s not a thing. Social Media Managers are incredibly underestimated and misunderstood in this world, and I’m here to clear things up and educate the uneducated (and sometimes ignorant) about what it is we do.

Do You Think Instagram Is More Personal Than Facebook?

Do You Think Instagram Is More Personal Than Facebook?

I don’t spend much time on Facebook or Twitter, but it’s not because I’m “above” social media — I just happen to pour all of my social media obsession into Instagram. Yesterday, when my friend sent me an article called “You’re Using Instagram All Wrong” (um, I didn’t know there was a “right” and  ”wrong” way to use an app for pretty pictures), I simply had to read it to know whether I was a “correct” Instagram user.

Well, apparently, I am a very, very bad Instagram user. Keep reading »

One night last week, I was doing a final sweep of online headlines before I allowed the Xanax to sink in and take me away, Calgon-style, when I came across a story about Facebook introducing a new button feature that allows users to ask anyone about their relationship status. My first thought was, Is this really necessary? My second was, I need to grab a Kleenex because my night-guard is making me drool all over my pillow. Either way, I couldn’t stop thinking about why Facebook would go through the trouble to develop this Snoopy Susan feature that just proves how nosey you are to your stable of virtual friends.

The Soapbox: Hating On Social Media Is Trendy, But It’s Also Wrong

Alone But Still Connected

It seems like lots of people lately wax poetic about the good old days before we were all staring at computer screens. Take, for example, the popularity of the “Look Up” spoken word video. I hear these complaints from mostly people my age, maybe a bit older, so we’re not that far apart in our experiences. Yet somehow they hold this belief that social media has led all of us down a path to “forever alone” hell that we’ll never recover from. Or something? I’m not entirely sure, as it’s pretty infrequent that these arguments actually point to data, but rather appeal to emotions. Keep reading »
