This is the internet. Welcome.
Shit moves way too fast for anyone to be an authority on anything long enough to be “expert”.
By the time you’re “expert”, the thing you’re expert in is no longer relevant. Deal with it.
We’re all students. Every single one of us. We’re students of each other, and students of the collective. That’s what’s magical and different about the internet; it’s not hierarchical.
Instead of a classroom where the teacher hands lessons down to the students, everyone is encouraged to be a teacher, sharing knowledge and experiences.
And everyone is encouraged to be a student, gaining knowledge and experiences.
Admittedly, in the “classroom” scene we’ve painted, I’m that pain in the ass kid in the back always questioning the teacher. But somebody needs to keep the teachers on their toes, and I hope that people are out there trying to keep me in check as well.
So, “social media experts”, I call your bluff.
There aren’t any social media experts, at least not yet.
And you (yes, you) certainly won’t be the first one.
