Lots of good info. I especially like the beginning part where he shares his thoughts on everyone using the term “social media expert”. Well said, and I couldn’t agree more — tools, resources, and websites change. Lots of folks have been being “social” for years on the web/internet.

Good stuff, Josh 🙂
