We Interrupt Regular Blogging for Steve’s Shorts
Take a simple few minutes where a guy who is brilliant makes an observation about the social web that you might have already be thinking. This interruption brought to you by the evil conspiracy that is Steve Plunkett and Liz Strauss.
What is Social Media Influence? (on Twitter it is..)
by Steve Plunkett.
I post a link to an article, it gets Retweeted. They don’t ask where the link goes. They don’t ask what the article is about. They just retweet it, because in the past @steveplunkett has sent them to a favorable destination. There is inherent trust that it’s not a malware or virus link and credibility that they can pass the link on to their followers and not look stupid. so how is this influence? I never asked for a retweet, they were “natually influenced” to do so.
A Short Look at … What’s Next?
Hope you enjoyed these moments with Steve’s Shorts.
