Stop Following Seth Godin! He adds no value on social networks

Seth Godin, one of the worlds most respected bloggers and new media marketers, and he should be. His expertise and wisdom in these marketing arena’s is invaluable.

However, my advice would be to stop following him on Twitter and Facebook. Seth has publically made it clear that he does not believe on social media (specifically Facebook and Twitter) and it show in his profiles.

Seth only pushes blog updates to twitter. There is no opportunity to interact with him on twitter.

His Twitter profile is only ever a list of updates from his blog and therefore we see no interest from Seth in engaging with his followers. Thus the purpose of following him on twitter is pointless. There is no desire from his seide to engage other people. He does not follow anyone. On Facebook we see the same issue as his 39, 702 fans don’t ever seem to get replys to their comments on his updates. These profiles are proof that Seth has decided against social media.

Therefore I suggest you unfollow and ‘unfan’ Seth on your social networks and rather just subscribe to his RSS and comment directly to his blog. You are getting no additional value by following him verses subscribing to his RSS feed.

On the plus side, Seth seems to be adopting the mobile media well and now has a new iPhone app.
