I jump off and on the reading bandwagon more times than I care to admit. I’d like to read a lot more than I do and the one topic that seems to have really gotten me passionate again is learning about communications. Crisis, engagement, customer service, social media…it all really intrigues me and I’m always on the look out for others’ recommendations. One of those “others” suggested 2010′s Social Nation: How to Harness the Power of Social. A book authored by Barry Libert, a social technology advisor with a laundry list of board appointments…pretty smart and savvy guy. A thought leader.
I’m about a quarter of the way in when I read that it’s best for me to take his online Social Quotient Test. Sounds interesting. I’m intrigued and I’d love to play along. I spent the money on the ebook, I want to get as much bang for my buck as I can. And hey, I love those quizzes that tell you something about yourself. So I clinked on the link on the book’s page. It sent me to the Mzinga website, a social business and technology company and one led (not anymore though) by Libert. I don’t think anything of it other than that the test should be on here somewhere. Nope. No where to be found. How was I suppose to know my social strengths and weaknesses if I couldn’t take the test?
