One response to “Social Media Masters Course

  1. After seeing several self-proclaimed ‘social media experts’ debunked recently as mere ‘friend collectors’ on a number of social media web sites, I wondered just who are the ‘experts’? And just who would be teaching this stuff? What qualifies an individual (in a relatively new realm of media) to teach social media on a graduate level?

    The low-hanging fruit for this announcement might be an ad for “Get your Masters in Facebook”.
