Myths of Social Media: Dispel the Misconceptions and Master Social Media 2nd Ed. by Michelle Carvill and Ian MacRae

About the Book

Everyone knows that social media is free, millennials are all adept social media experts, and businesses always have to be available 24/7 and ultimately none of it really matters, as the digital space is full of fake news and online messaging is seen as inauthentic.

Don’t they?

The use of social media as a business tool is dominated by falsehoods, fiction, and fabrications.

In Myths of Social Media, digital consultant Michelle Carvill and workplace psychologist Ian MacRae dismiss many of the most keenly-held misconceptions and instead, present the reality of social media best practices.

Using helpful and instructive, sometimes entertaining, and occasionally eye-watering examples of what you should and should not do, Myths of Social Media bunks the most commonly held myths and shows you how to use social media effectively for work and at work.
