A day in the life of a social media managerSearching the web, I found this infographic illustrating a day in life of a Social Media Manager. More often, we are starting to see job postings regarding a position as a Social Media Manager, and it is definitely one of our time’s fastest growing job positions globally.

But what is a Social Media Manager actually doing? How much does a Social Media Manager earn? Who is a Social Media Manager – and how much experience does one have?

To establish what this title actually includes, Socialcast has made this nice infographic. So, check it out:

A day in the life of a social media manager
  • Great infographic. Pretty accurate judging from my experience.

  • Given the age of social media (as a marketing channel) how can anyone possibly have more than 3 or 4 years experience, let alone 10-19! Interesting re salaries though and suggests businesses set it as a low level role.

  • I like the 1% of workers who have 20 years experience – obviously managing communities before the Web that we know existed…. Maybe Tim Berners Lee is still at CERN as their Social Media Manager ;) http://www.walthowe.com/navnet/history.html

  • Women in media – it’s the loving to chat and communicate thing. So not pragmatic. I can’t wait to see how we in Germany are going to translate some of the social media terminologies. This stuff is shape-shifting language in use as we know it. Hello more Neudeutsch! LinkedIn Analytics btw, found out that one of the most common labels that Americans give themselves on LinkedIn profiles is “out-of-the-box”. Stats: great! @the-enablerJMoo
