Campy videos pillory social media pundits

Series of campy videos make fun of bad advice from self-proclaimed social media experts

The organizers of Social Media Camp, one of the fastest growing conferences for marketers, communicators and business professionals, announced the launch of a video series that parodies mediocre social media advice.  The videos are a series of short and campy vignettes that showcase examples of some of the worst social media advice - from offering broad based information that has little practical use to examples of absolute untruths.

“Social Media Camp has grown to one of the top social media education events with a line up of respected speakers and industry specialists,” says Social Media Camp co-founder, Chris Burdge. “We wanted to get the word out about Social Media Camp and also have a little campy fun with some of the bad social media advice that we have heard of. There is a lot of inaccurate advice and a whole new industry of social media consultants has emerged – some of whom are very knowledgeable and some of whom are not even aware that Facebook has rules about promotions.”

Burdge says, “Co-founder, Paul Holmes and I are passionate about educating people about social media. We are more than willing to get campy to get the word out about Social Media Camp.”

Social Media Camp will be held in Victoria June 8 - 9, 2012 with the keynote address from best selling author and digital media expert, Chris Brogan, author of Google + for Business.  Social Media Camp offers seminars and workshops with all the latest information and case studies for those new to the field and those looking for advanced social media techniques.
