Is it just me? I don't think so. Is it? Is it just me?

Well maybe it is just me.

But it does seem like people who write those "Oh my god if you don't dive into social media or electronic media your world will come to an end because nothing else works!" articles usually work for a company that sells social media or electronic media or social or electronic media consulting.

Have you ever noticed that people who work at the dry cleaners always think everything you bring in ought to be dry cleaned?

And the salesman or woman from every newspaper, magazine, radio station or cable provider knows for absolute certain that nothing else will work as well as (pick one) their newspaper, magazine, radio station or cable outlet?

Personally, I think the best advice comes from someone who doesn't have an axe to grind, or as they might say in Kentucky, a dog in that fight. I'm just saying consider the source. But that's just me, and anybody who knows me knows that I can only type with two fingers and have to look at the keyboard while I do it.
