Every Social Media Marketing (SMM) Professional is required to be well versed with all kinds of social media updates and information by default. From latest technology to trending topics, they have to know it all for their campaigns to be successful. And this sure can not be done by reading about stuff alone.
Thank God, people created some really great tools to help us!
