One of the savviest online marketers around, B.L. Ochman, takes aim in this article at six social media myths that you — and maybe your boss — ought to avoid …

1. Social media is cheap, if not free.

2. Anyone can do it.

3. You can make a big splash in a short time.

4. You can do it all in-house.

5. If you do something great, people will find it.

6. You can’t measure social media marketing results. [OK, maybe you don’t want to tell your boss about that one!]

She’s an experienced online marketer … worth a read.


P.S. There are some interesting comments on her article, once you get past her "spat" with one "Giovanni." Note the interview she plugs of internet pioneer Marc Andreesen by Charlie Rose.
