In case you missed it, Cathryn Sloane, a senior at the University of Iowa, wrote a “controversial” post last week for Next Gen Journal titled “Why every social media manager should be under age 25.” (Here’s the follow-up response from the Next Gen editors, if you’re interested and a great post by Mark Story offering some helpful tips to Sloane.)
Provocative headline, right? Well, it was more than a headline. She backed it up with some big opinions around why she really believes it to be true.
You can disagree with Sloane (I don’t think anyone can honestly agree with the idea that every social media manager should be younger than 25), but to me, this has much more to do with attitude and humility than the actual topic.
