Social Media Theory vs. Reality For A Local Business Owner

To say that there is an abundance of Social Media Theory out there, is one of the largest understandments in the world. Everyone seems to have their own input or take on what makes social media go round. Do you know why that is? The main reason is the low cost of entry.  Let me restate that better by saying, the "no cost of entry".  Anyone can play.  So, because you have a facebook account or you send random tweets, are you an expert on what converts business from the social media world?  Don't misunderstand me, some of the theories out there are great.  But, social media theory vs Reality for a local business owner is an important topic to cover.
