How many companies ask you to Like or find them on Facebook in a given week? It turns out that for Social Strategist Andrew Blakeley it was 46. How many of them might tell you why? That’s what Andrew wondered and decided to Like every brand that asked him to in a week as an experiment. The goal of the experiment was to see if or how many of those brands gave a reason to Like them or if they’re just doing as a given.
Jeremiah Owyang started keeping tabs on the growing number of social strategists in corporate ranks. Currently, he’s aware of 280 people who hold the title. The eye-catcher on the list is the proportion of regulated industries represented.
In addition to changing the way we communicate, advertise, bully, research, etc. social media is creating jobs. For the Social Community Manager, Social Strategist, and everyone else who doesn’t officially have a social media title the work is there.
