I'm seeing a huge increase in snake oil salesmen who know noithing about financial advice and a little about social media and search engines and parlaying that into marketing engagements. The trends started three years ago with the surge in open-source devleopment content management systems like WordPress and Joomla, but it has take gained strength in recent months as the economy has worsened, throwing more people out of work and transforming them into overnight Web gurus.
This story captures thatbtrend and also nails the ridiculous oversharing, slef0-indulgence, and naivete of many advisors marketing by using social media.
