TwittFaced


I bought this book on Amazon last week. They had me with the title. So clever! It's written by Jacob Morgan and Joshua Peters and is described as a "crash course in social media".
Because I am a Virtual Assistant, and because many of my clients could benefit from using social media to market their business, I have been learning everything I can on the subject.
I'm only half-way through the book so I will give you a full review when I finish. But so far, I have really enjoyed it. Mostly because I'm a geek, but also because the authors are real people and it's written in a friendly conversational style. It was a little slow at the start, but they really caught my attention when they mentioned that they KNOW social media works, because they wrote a book together and they have NEVER met in person! That intrigues me.
Nobody is paying me for a review of this book because frankly, no one cares what I think. So if I hate it, I'll tell you. If I continue to enjoy it, I'll share that too.
Now, if I can just find my highlighter I can get back to reading. See, I told you I was a geek.

That is the funniest book title I've ever seen! And I'm interested to know what you think of the book when you're done. I'm trying so hard to resist getting completely sucked into social media. I gave in with blogging. I took one more step in with Facebook. But if feel like if I give into Tweeting, I am giving up on being REAL somehow. Sigh...

I'm interested in your review as well! I'm thinkin' about buying this, but not sure... I'm trying to learn how to be a better geek and am unsure of how much of it will be "over my head"...
