Are the CBC Facebook Police putting the screws to Tod Maffin?

todmaffin: got /todmaffin and /thecbc (for my unofficial CBC group of 17,000+ CBC fans

Tod runs the CBC Facebook group where he casually answers questions from the general public and promotes the CBC projects he thinks are worth promoting.

But he shouldn’t be sleeping too soundly. One eye open might be the order of the day.

rights requests that URL

    You guys are just jealous; don’t you know that Todd is a social media maven, keynote speaker, broadcaster and writer? A maven goddammit!!! How many mavens do you know? How many people do you know brave enough to refer to themselves as maven? Yeah, that’s what I thought.

    Tod operates in the future.
    He has already pioneered a new social media/marketing experience, and already abandoned it.
    If you look closely, you’ll see he’s not actually doing anything for the CBC.
    In fact, it’s become fairly clear to most people that he offers nothing of any real value.
    Apart from the amusement of his pathetic flim flam.

    If I understand correctly, El Tod merely canvassed potential business partners (and, I suppose, friends) to see who would like to toast his accomplishments at a future Tweetup. How one shrinks from the very word.

    So no, I dont think hes been in town yet. Coffee in Leslieville, Tod? Youre buying.

    I guess it was bound to happen. What did he expect?

    So is this why he was in Toronto recently?
