There Are 181,000 Social Media 'Gurus,' 'Ninjas,' 'Masters,' and 'Mavens' on Twitter

There Are 181,000 Social Media 'Gurus,' 'Ninjas,' 'Masters,' and 'Mavens' on Twitter | Social Media: Don't Hate the Hashtag | Scoop.it

As a public service, I like to periodically check in on the number of self-proclaimed social media "gurus," "ninjas," "masters" and "mavens" on Twitter. Why? Well, it seems like an important metric, an indicator of something.

Ally Greer's curator insight, January 7, 2013 3:42 PM

As of this month, the number of Twitter users that refer to themselves as social media "gurus," "ninjas," "mavens," "experts," or even "freaks," has increased to 181,000.


According to B.L. Ochman, "a guru is something someone else calls you, not something you call yourself." I could not agree more with her. It's hard to believe someone when they refer to themselves as people who are often worshipped in religious or intellectual contexts.


Check out the video at the end of the post; it's a hilarious parody of the "social media guru."

Two Pens's curator insight, January 13, 2013 11:38 PM

I thank the good Lord that I never claimed to be a ninja, a maven, nor a master. Goddess? That would be me.

This is a crazy story about how things can unfold on the internet. The rumors being spread about Applebee's are severely damaging their reputation, and more people need to try and understand what's actually going on before they talk.


Personally, I think Applebees has handled the situation in such a way that large brands should take note of - not ignoring anyone or blocking anyone while also being kind and understanding to anyone and everyone who has an opinion to voice.

Is Twitter Making Us Meaner? Uncivil Discourse In The Age Of Social Media

Is Twitter Making Us Meaner? Uncivil Discourse In The Age Of Social Media | Social Media: Don't Hate the Hashtag | Scoop.it

GwynethJones's insight:

Ally Greer's curator insight, December 3, 2012 3:19 PM

This is a very interesting read on the evolution of public discourse and incivility.


The notion that social media gives way to "trolls" and makes us meaner is increasingly demonstrated by public arguments on Twitter, comment boards, and even Facebook posts.


The article points out that "...while Twitter incivility may be a relatively new phenomenon, irrational behavior by rational individuals is not." While it's hard to disagree with this point, Twitter and other social channels have certainly made it much easier to personally attack others via anonymous - or not so anonymous - Internet accounts while hiding behind a computer screen.


Unfortunately, though, incivility works. The author gives an example here of an author who gained over 20,000 followers after engaging in a "Twitter fight" with Chris Brown. When will social media reach the point where it stops rewarding incivility?

Bald Beliebers Remind Us: Just Because You Read It On Twitter, Doesn’t Mean It’s True

Bald Beliebers Remind Us: Just Because You Read It On Twitter, Doesn’t Mean It’s True | Social Media: Don't Hate the Hashtag | Scoop.it

From TechCrunch:

The story goes that Entertainment Weekly’s verified Twitter account tweeted out the following:

 

“Pop Star Justin Bieber was diagnosed with cancer earlier this morning. Bieber fans are shaving their heads to show their support.”

Justin apparently responded back saying thanks for the support, and a picture of the Twitter conversation along with two images of bald Bieber fans started making its way on the internet.

 

In reality, 4chan was trolling Beliebers. There were no tweets to begin with, and there definitely isn’t any cancer. 4chan peeps simply photoshopped together an image and sent it out into the world.

GwynethJones's insight:

Oh 4Chan I love your wacky ways!

iLibrarian » 5 Ways to Use Pinterest in Your Library | Social Media: Don't Hate the Hashtag | Scoop.it

Pinterest is a digital pinboard application which started just last year but has quickly become one of the top 10 most trafficked social networking websites according to Hitwise. During the second week in December the website had over 11 million visitors.  Pinterest is a great visual tool which can help libraries draw in their readers by setting up pin boards of book covers to alert library patrons of new acquisitions or recommended readings. Create separate boards for different book categories such as: fiction, non-fiction, young adult fiction, science fiction, horror, travel, most popular, recommended, etc.
