How come few people confess to being amateurs and dumbasses?
Shel Israel theorizes:
I think this controversy has been accelerated because people have started making money teaching others about social media. And when they and their friends come up against competition they take a very old school approach. They badmouth people they do not know, and assume the right to point a derogatory finger simply because they were doing the stuff first.
Calling yourself a social media expert is like saying you’re an expert in talking. It is just human interaction like we’ve been doing since we rubbed two sticks together and made fire. I know “social media” is a buzzword these days, but let’s just be honest here, shall we?
Indeed. If you can’t talk, ‘fess up and call yourself a dumbass, or an amateur at least. It might cause someone to give you a second glance for being unique in a crowd of clones.
You are welcome to brand me a social media expert, but I’ll be the first to kindly thank you and shrug it off, preferring to be a social media dumbass instead.
