I'm not such a fan of 'social media gurus' or whatever they are calling themselves. There are a few in my following list - when I added them I was either
1. just return following everyone or
2. interested in something they were talking about at the time.
Today I have been unfollowing everyone who wastes my time with social media 'how to's, ads for ways to make $$ or messages saying hello to their new followers. I like twitter for the social aspect of it, not the captive audience advertising that seems to be rampant.
I also thought my avatar on twitter would get rid of some of the more fundamentalist types that started to follow me. I wanted to discourage them before I had to block them. Nope, just convinced more to follow. I don't follow back, but can not for the life of me figure out why they are following me. I have an adult balloon as my avatar - censored, but still adult.
to be fair, I'm sure lots of folks have unfollowed me after some of my more inane posts - but that's ok. we each take what we want out of this experience. I would rather know that May is drinking coffee and listening to music than a new tip on using social media to it's fullest. If I was going to use social media to it's fullest I would take May's tweet and tell her to buy coffee from coffeefool.com. Of course I would have signed up for some sort of associate program first and made some $$ off of the deal. Seems like a lot of work. I'm a balloon artist as part of my master plan to avoid lots of work. :-)
one last thing
I don't know if they have an associate program or not. If they do, I'm not signed up for it, but banana nut coffee from Coffeefool.com is freaking awesome. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmgood.
