19. You only go to new places, like restaurants and hotels, based on social recommendations.
20. You write guest blog posts as a “social media expert” to share your wisdom about how to get more followers and likes.
21. Your worst nightmare is not being to access Twitter for a whole day.
22. You have used a variety of descriptors for your social media prowess, like “ninja,” “evangelist,” “maven,” “pro.”
