How Do You Pronounce “Social Media”?

Mare-sea, y’all.

Ever listen to someone torture pronunciation in another language? And be so clueless about it that it boggles your mind?

I think that’s how it’s going with social media right now. People say…words. But their pronunciation is so, so wrong. They know a limited vocabulary, but don’t get the subtleties. Never will.

When I saw the Pronunciation Manual videos featured on Kottke, it brought it all home. (Go ahead. Click there now. You won’t be back for a while. And be somewhere where you can laugh out loud.)

I’m going to work on a Pronunciation Manual for Social Media. It’ll be like Rosetta Stone, only for the Twitterati. I’m looking for two camera-confident people to work with me on this. Send me a note. I’m not kidding.
