Social Media Cartoon: The Social Media Guru, Expert, Or Wizard

Seems like a lot of the Twitter profiles I come across lately of social media professionals have the term “expert”, “guru”, or “wizard” somewhere in the profile. It certainly doesn’t help that Twitter profiles that use those words seem to get a lot of followers, leading everyone to believe that they should call themselves the nonsensical terms.

In fact, I saw a Twitter profile the other day that said “18 year Old SEO And Social MediaExpert”.  Now I’m not saying that it’s impossible to be an expert at 18 on SEO and Social Media, but I’m pretty sure that I’m not going to trust my business plan to someone who has zero experience in business. Hence, the following cartoon.

I think I know that kid. Wait ... isn't that Justin Bieber? You know, he has a 100 Klout score, so he probably is a genuine wizgurupert.
