I’m a big fan of salesforce.com. My company, Cloud Sherpas, is one of its biggest partners, sporting over 260 Salesforce-certified consultants (and we’re looking for many, many more — see our job listings). Plus we’re tops in customer satisfaction and a salesforce.com platinum-level partner on three continents.
But we’ve noticed a few signs that some of our friends, colleagues and associates in the greater “Salesforce ecosystem” might be a bit too into salesforce.com.
How can you tell? With help from my colleagues at Cloud Sherpas — and a nod to BuzzFeed — here are 15 top warning signs:
1. Your Facebook picture is you and SaaSy or Chatty
(Looking good, J Nicole Alford!)
2. You name your new child Summer 13
3. You complain about “how they’ve made the DEV401 exam too easy”
(OR you complain that “the dev exam has too many questions the same as admin” and you really wish they had made it harder)
4. You only communicate with your family on Chatter
5. You insist that all meetings start with an intro from will.i.am
6. Speaking of will.i.am, you’re still raving about Salesforce’s Super Bowl ad from 2011
7. Your friends are tired of hearing how many tequila shots you did with “Frank”
9. You’ve been overheard at a bar arguing about governor limits or the benefits of multi-tenancy
10. You plan your vacation each year in San Francisco just in time for Dreamforce
11. “Amazing” is your favorite word
12. You hang out at One Market hoping to run into Salesforce execs
13. You haven’t been grocery shopping for a month because you have eaten breakfast, lunch and dinner on customer tour
14. Everything, everything seems to be about Salesforce or their products
15. You write a blog post about being too into Salesforce

16. You create memes like this
