This video was created by a second party and I dedicate it to the countless men and women who have earned the right to be called a social media douche bag. Enjoy!

- 1 Tbsp of registering with dozens of social media sites, but never actually use them.
-  Pinch of guaranteeing results for your clients, but have no prior experience orchestrating a successful social media campaign.
- 1 dollop of using auto follows tools to obtain 80,000 visitor and flaunting this as evidence of your social media prowess.

Bake for 20 minutes on high and voila, a social media expert is served up to bright eyed managers eager to jump on the social media bandwagon and sink their teeth into a slice of pride that they are officially involved in the social media revolution and say look at me world.

I pass the torch to you my dear reader. What other signs make your social media expert a douche bag?
