I passed! Just got the word that after three days of classes and an exam, I am now a Master of Social Media.
After two years of LinkedIn, Twitter, Shareology, Facebook and, yes, three videos on YouTube, I am now certified. (Write you own caption….)
Two years ago, I attended my first Social Media Breakfast Minneapolis St. Paul and promptly declared myself a Social Media Enthusiast. (Yes, it went on my business card.) Gistr came calling and asked me to prepare and implement a social media strategy for their website. (Never did get around to ordering cards with Social Media Strategist on them; it did, however, land on my Twitter profile.) Two days after the exam results (a 95!!!) I ordered new cards with Master of Social Media on them. Thus you can track my social media history in a progression of titles and business cards, and now classroom learning.
