Our little dude is one step closer to getting a real name! And literally more than 500 names were suggested.
We poured through the entire list and came up with five that we really like. Now we need your help picking the final name. Keep reading to see the finalists and how you can vote.
But first, I’d like to give a public tip of the hat to the core team that helped Social Media Examiner become the site it is today.
Thanks to the Gang of Seven
There were initially seven of us who agreed to contribute regularly to this site. These folks were all established experts in their fields and we couldn’t have done what we’ve done without their help. Here are the other six:
Mari Smith: Mari is the queen of Facebook for business, the royal lady of relationship marketing and co-author of the book Facebook Marketing: An Hour a Day.
Denise Wakeman: Denise is an outstanding expert on blogging for business and the gal behind The Blog Squad.
Chris Garrett: Chris is half-techy guy and half content king. He’s the co-author of the bestseller Problogger.
Jason Falls: Jason is a true social media guru and visionary. He’s also the guy behind Social Media Explorer.
