Calling bullshit on social media

Scott Berkun on “social media:”

If anything has happened recently it’s not the birth of social networks, it’s the popularity of digital tools for social networks, which is something different. These tools may improve how we relate to each other, but at best it will improve upon something we as a species have always done.

I’m glad someone is pointing out the idiocy of calling Twitter, et al “social media.” I guess this makes the term “Social Media Expert” an even more ridiculous title.
