Social Media Say-What-Now?! [Overabundance of Social Media Job Titles]

Social media buzzwords are all around us — Web 2.0, engagement, community, conversation, influencers, and countless others. But have you realized how much social media buzzwords have infiltrated Human Resources? Social media job titles seem to be all the rage, and I’m getting super confused!!

To be honest I’ve used a few of these; Rright now I am the “Social Media Innovator and Online Community Director” at Ideaz Factory. It’s been confusing my clients, so I’ve just been saying “Social media consultant” and sometimes “social media strategist”. But I’m currently a professional blogger (although definitions vary from anyone running a business-oriented blog or getting paid anything at all to blog to those earning a full-time living from blogging — I go with the former definition).

That’s a part of the problem though. We’re at a point where it seems like everyone is defining these social media job titles so differently that in the end they mean little to nothing. Are we simply caught up in social media stardom, or are we more lost in trying to explain what we do? And what are people’s thoughts on some of the more ‘interesting’ (read: ego-centric) social media job titles out there — from czar to guru? Check out the list below to see what kinds of social media job titles are out there and being advertised these days.

It takes one to start one

After a little nudging, a little inspiration, a leftover bottle of wine, and a very hectic day at work….i have a tumblr. (Soo..Basically your typical Friday afternoon.)

I’ve had a super private quiet life for the longest time,but since every day something interesting happens, I thought I’d document my thoughts from time to time. I love it too much not be able to remember it one day. 

And here it goes with an obligatory introduction, as this blog will capture some time to time glimpses of my life, situations, problems, and endeavors that will probably just be work-related (but I love my job, and everyone I work with, and I’ve only just started). 

I’m a social media marketer, in case you were wondering. Official title is: “Social Media Innovator and Online Community Director at Ideaz Factory International”

Sounds cliche? I’m trying not to be.  

I’m a personable go-getter that adores good company, especially at here in Beirut. I love living in a country that has 4 seasons, retro fashion, and will always have a craving for coffee. A “I left my heart in Boston” girl (and better yet - a Loveanese? Because I Love Lebanon and that blog about Love in Lebanon) that occasionally will get an Almaza, or 4…  I am a daughter, sister, good friend to many, girlfriend to one, student, sassy, twenty-something tweeter, & now a [public] “blogger.” I’m trying to grow-up, but enjoy the occasional slip-up. I require that you have a sense of humor, maybe with an ounce of sarcasm, and a personality above anything. 

And I’m only warming up.
