My friend Tom Martin has been compiling a series of interviews for his awesome Talkin’ With Tom project. He’s getting video interviews using nothing but and iPhone with thought leaders around the country. The series is fascinating and you should certainly check out some of the great interviews and information shared there.

But Tom is also apt to have a little fun. So as part of his interviews of several folks close to the social media space, he decided to tack on a silly question: Who’s the biggest douchebag in social media. The answers are astonishing. Everyone names names. I, for one, think this is an incredible step in the right direction: to call ‘em out and end their shenanigans.

Watch this:

And if you didn’t stick around to the end, be sure to tune into Talkin’ With Tom on Monday to see who I picked!

    Integration of a teaser promotion that links within YouTube… excellent way to end the video :)

    It’s interesting to see how free tools like YouTube have enabled us to get more creative in how we drive traffic to websites….  Obviously, all being possible in this particular case due to your connection with all these influencers.

    Thanks for playing along…. still can’t believe folks actually answered that question…. but loved every minute that they did. Think it will be most interesting on Monday when you share your two cents on the subject… the No Bullshit answer that was easily the best one of all.

    Good news, bad news, Jason. The good news is at least you are a useful tool, the bad news, according to this definition from the Urban Dictionary, is you might still have some work to do.

    According to Google’s most recent stats on it’s keyword tool, the term “d bag” is globally and broadly searched 201,000 times per month (with modest competition for the term). Awesome, haha!

    Tom, you never fail to bring me excellent content and time-worthy information. This certainly doesn’t disappoint! Fantastic – can’t wait to see who Jason Falls outs as #1. I do have a sneaking suspicion but I’ll hold my tongue to see if I’m correct. Ha! Love it. – Love, Fan girl @Beaumartian:twitter

    Jason, I surfed the web with Social Media Douchebag. I knew social media douchebag. Social media douchebag was a friend of mine. Jason, you’re no social media douchebag.
