Here in the U.S.A. we have the BBB’s (Better Business Bureau) which is a club (of sorts) where you pay a fee to belong and then you can put their logo on your website – it denotes that your business is REAL (not some scam) and that you are a “member in good standing” in the community in which your business resides. It is universal here; most cities and towns with even a meager population have that one. Has nothing to do with social media – just business in general.
As far as just “social media”, there is the SNAMA but I don’t know how authoritative they are at this point. The ASAE but it is not social media per se, it is an association for association executives. You’ll find many websites that purport to be “authorities” on many subjects, especially social media.
It would be nice if there was a place where everyone could go and find the best social media experts (like Third Tribe used to be) and get recognized for their own knowledge in the field at the same time/place.
Read @rich-brooks questions and let us know what you are looking for.
Note - You might make sure your links in social media places (like this one) work so the members can readily access your website and blog. It should be this: http://hashtagsa.com/blog/ — so it is a clickable link.
