    Social media producers and managers are the newsies of the journalism family.  Newsies, often boys, would sell newspapers in the streets by yelling headlines.  They are dynamic and creative, but also have an eye for testing and perfecting strategies to get more people to consume news content.

    Social media producers are the best writers, able to convey messages briefly and creatively.  They express their creativity with audio, images and words.

    They also live in a largely online world and get to know the characters of the internet. These online citizens learn to smell lies and false information to maintain the credibility of themselves and their media brand, making them the most reliable of influencers.
