For many social media and community practitioners being viewed as an expert in something that everyone thinks they are great at (social media) can be a real challenge. Just because someone loves Instagram or has 500 friends on facebook doesn’t mean they truly understand that intricacies of managing a comprehensive social or community program. How do you build your reputation as a social strategist – a true expert on social media and community initiatives?
