There's no question that investing in a social media strategy can pay off, if done wisely, but choosing the right applications for that investment is the tricky part.
I'm not arguing that what the Fat Jew has been accused of doing isn't wrong. Plagiarism is never okay. However, to those who say he is a talentless hack, you're only half right. So if you're looking to go after someone who is solely profiting off the ideas of others, take your pitchforks elsewhere.
