Do you need to be an Extrovert to be in Social Media Marketing?

Buzz Marketing for Technology

But focusing on the Extrovert angle for a second, I began to wonder if you need to be an extrovert to be in social media.

Approaching Strangers Through Foursquare

Ari Herzog

Asking my Facebook friends if they would randomly approach me if they didn’t know me and saw me checked into a location through a geolocational app, the varied responses are telling: It is notable that responses 1 and 3 are from people who also tweet and are active across social networking channels.
