Social Media Celebrity - Infographic of the Day.

While I'm sure there are some exceptions (and they probably wear superhero capes), I was ruminating on the subject of web celebrity today...while chatting with @Marc_Meyer on Twitter.  We both expressed the delimma of being buried in the "real work" and not having time to be more active in the online and offline social grid. 

So, I drew this up afterward.  Does it make you want to laugh... or throw rocks at me? (click to enlarge)




Thanks to @geoffliving for reminding me that some of us go through intense periods of intense engagement.

To be a true social media graphic, it needs a really long tail.

Preferably wagging a dog somewhere.

Well played!

Ah, I think I'm somewhere in the middle there. The thing is that I'm in the "down in the trenches" mode doing a lot of the work people only write or talk about. For that reason, it is hard to be on Twitter all day, and meeting that so-called "social media" checklist. I never cared about that stuff. The bottom line is you always want to use your skill set to help others achieve their goals while learning tons of stuff along the way. I'm doing that. It makes me giddy happy. Nothing can ever affect that. This infographic was hilarious when you posted it on Twitter yesterday!! Tongue in cheek? Whatevs. ;-) My support always. Anna

I'm so dysfunctional that I'm nowhere near the trend arc.
Too busy working to blog, too busy tweeting and facebooking and quoraing and whatnot to write the book.
I think I'm midpoint on the leftside without nowhere near the plotted-line.
Well that's um... yeah. Predictable for me.
