  • The Unspoken Truth About Influential Liars | UNSPOKEN ~ Social Media

    Jure Klepic calls it like he sees it. Just because someone has a high Klout doesn't mean they are telling the truth. One thing I've learned in social media is that if you want a lot of links and people responding to you BE WRONG. BE CONTROVERSIAL. BE RUDE. I no longer respond to rudeness with links and responses because that is helping the fool who is doing it.  Jure also says to beware of those who call themselves social media experts. He's right. Many of the “experts” are buffoons with few followers (they say that they don't have time for that) and fewer real friends. They like to be listened to by making big bucks with big companies who don't ask themselves if they SHOULD listen to them. This is a great, thought provoking post about journalism, klout, and ethics.
