What's In A Name?

I was placed in the weird position to explain the meaning of "Social Media Wannabe."


When I first started playing around on Twitter, I had to describe myself in the bio which is as long as a Tweet.


I went with "social media wannabe," i.e. I know much about social media, but I won't compare to all those other people online.


Those other people go by all sorts of fun titles as illustrated by this FANTASTIC blog post:

While I may not be a ninja, analyst, guru or guide, most folks who know me will tell you I am a lifelong learner. On this social media stuff, where things are changing by the second,  you pretty much HAVE TO BE!


Perhaps a cooler title? Social Media Guide? Social Media Sherpa? Social Media Expert? How about Social Media Newb?


Nah, they don't work. I AM a social media wannabe. And it probably won't change any time soon!
