@ginidietrich  Looks like I gave you the wrong link. Apologies for that. Just to clarify, the post I wrote that I am refferring to is this one: http://88creative.ca/introverts-make-the-best-social-media-managers/

I wrote about why introverts make the best social media managers and I gave 3 reasons why and explained each point. In Yvette's post, she not only used the same reasons and explantions I did, but her wording and sentence structure is very close to mine. After reading both posts and reading each paragraph, can you see the similarities?

I am just pointing out what is obvious to me based on the evidence. How you choose to or choose not to reprimand and discipline Yvette is your prerogative.

@ginidietrich Like yourself, I work in the blogosphere so I am under no illusion to the fact that there are thousands of articles out there about introverts and it's not an original topic.  I also think it's great that you wrote about introverts too. But in your words, "lets get real", it's not about who wrote it first. It's about the fact that this post is a clear copy of mine and just from reading the two posts you can clearly see that and   several people have verified this too.


I think it's commendable that you stand behind your employees but the truth is clear.  If I thought otherwise, I wouldn't waste my time calling out a person and a company who has more influence and a bigger audience and platform than me.

@yvettepistorio  @allenmireles Thanks for the response but I'm not buying it. Just from reading both of the posts you can clearly see that not only are the main ideas similar, but the sentence structure and the words used are similar too. You've just changed things around here and there. Please don't take me for a fool.


More than anything, I'm disappointed that as someone who works in social media, you dont seem to understand one of the basic rules of social media etiquette; give credit where credit is due. Going forward, I hope you keep this incident in mind before you attempt to lift copy from someone else's content and take credit for it. Pay it forward
