    In this lively, insightful seminar, journalist and social critic B.J. Mendelson skillfully debunks the myths of social media.

    He illustrates how the notion of “social media” first came to prominence, why it has become such a powerful presence in the marketing field, and who stands to benefit each time it’s touted in the press.

    He shows you why all the Facebook friends and Twitter followers in the world mean nothing to you and your business without old-fashioned, real-world connections.

    He examines popular tales of social media “success,” and reveals some unsettling truths behind the surface.


    About B.J. Mendelson

    B.J. Mendelson has contributed to The Huffington Post, CNN,MTV’s O Music AwardsMashableForbes, the Eisner-nominatedComicsAlliance, and other national outlets. He regrets writing for all but two of them.

    In the Fall of 2001, he started a business at the age of eighteen, operating it out of his dorm room at Alfred State College. The business was called, “Earth’s Temporary Solution” and was a live entertainment business that booked concerts across New York.

    In February of 2003, B.J.’s “Universal Break-up Card” was featured on BoingBoing, Fark, GorillaMask, College Humor, and many other websites. This would be the first of a long string of humor columns for B.J. to go viral.

    In 2006, after a few years of getting emails asking how to make stuff go viral, B.J. took on clients in order to pay for his growing student loan debt. He then proceeded to make every mistake you can think of when it comes to marketing.

    B.J. was also previously a new media director for a television show that aired in forty million homes through ABC affiliates across America, a syndicated college survival columnist with CBS College Sports, and has been quoted and featured in NewsweekThe New York TimesThe Los Angeles TimesPsychology TodaySmart Money Magazine, and other national outlets.

    He has talked about the myth of social media at such colleges as SUNY Potsdam, SUNY Alfred, Marist College, and the University at Albany, among others. Just recently, he debated the ambassador to Pakistan at the United Nations on the issue.

    This is a F-R-E-E event.

    I read the book and it is a MUST have. B.J. really blows the whistle on all the social media marketing nonsense out there.
