Drew Curtis certainly holds nothing back. In this, the first of a multi-part series on Social Media Explorer TV, the Fark.com founder and grand poobah waxes poetic on Fark, Digg, Alexa and more. A word of warning: The interview includes colorful language, so don’t jack up the volume at work or in front of the kids.

Part 2 of the Holy Fark! series is scheduled for Wednesday. In it Drew talks about his book, “It’s Not News, It’s Fark: How Mass Media Tries To Pass Off Crap As News.” Learn more and order your copy here.

And for disclosure purposes, Drew and I go way back. We met in high school as attendees of the Kentucky Governor’s Scholars Program. Drew was just as snarky and funny then. He also had a mullet. The last edition of the series will probably be the two of us reminiscing … that is if any of it is the least bit entertaining.

    Nice job! The problem of trash page views is everywhere. Ironically, in the world of local search for instance, while publishers like to boast about the number of PVs, it could be seen as an indicator of poor navigational structure, poor results and consumers having to sort through their content to get to what they were looking for. I’ll have to pick up Drew’s book!

    Joe … thanks man!

    Ike … Communists! (Heh)

    Sonia … You’re absolutely right. And you should pick up his book. The media didn’t really give him enough push and it’s amazing how dead-on he is in analyzing them despite his lack of journalism experience or training. He’s just one of those guys with a great insight on the world.
