I’m always wary of so-called social media consultants who guarantee positive results to clients. How can you guarantee anything in the social network? Who the hell knew that “Gangnam Style” would catch on and bring PSY to a western audience? Who the hell knew “Call be Maybe” would win the summer far and above any of the commercial crap produced by studios? I mean, certainly there are some best practices you should probably follow. Never invoke “Hitler” when attempting to argue a point. Don’t CAPS LOCK anything unless you want to sound like a shouty idiot. But in general, I have found that there’s way to really predict how random people will react to things you post on your social network.
It’s possible that there’s science involved that I’m not aware of. If there is science behind these consulting gurus, awesome for that. But I’ve seen the net destroy people for horrible things they’ve said or done either on purpose or by accident. How do you really rebrand your social image after something so damaging?
Anyway, this weekend is the Small Press Sexpo! I will be at table F14 which should be easy to find since it’s right near the front entrance! How exciting! I will be hanging out with some cartoon wanderers sharing their table and trying my best not to draw horrible things all over the place. And don’t forget, Saturday night after the Ignatz Award ceremony, we will be Art Fighting for a spell. It should be loads of fun!
