Livingstonbuzz’s post from last week is incredibly useful – in detecting if your current/ potential social media consultant is a carpetbagger. Its the oldest trick in getting some Digg love – make a list. Forget the 10s…make it a top 25. And list all that a social media consultant can and may utter. Wow…very helpful. Where it may be of some help is to perhaps identify what the solution is. Assuming a client is reading the list and finds that his/ her social media consultant utters, say, #7, #13 and #16…what is he/ she supposed to do? Call Geoff Livingston? Brilliant.

So, what is the ‘right’, Livingston way of doing anything in social media? Adding that against each of the 25 in this list may have made this really worthwhile. Right now, at its present state, its merely funny, not useful.
