Steven Van Belleghem wrote a post on the SocialMediaToday blog that is really on the mark.
The Bar Crowd
In his post, Steve describes a typical bar scenario. People talking in groups about all sorts of things. The topics change frequently, and every now and then one particular subject of discussion goes through the whole bar.
And like any bar, there is usually a diverse bunch of people:
- Seen frequently and have something useful, or interesting to offer to the conversation.
- Move easily between groups.
- Usually in the bar just to sell something.
- May enter a conversation,but usually, it has one purpose,
- Easy to spot.
- Appear in the bar every three months or so with the one goal of promoting themselves.
- Leave straight away.
Here’s Steven’s original post: When on Twitter, Act Like You’re in a Bar
