Social Media

Maybe you've seen this book trailer for Socialnomics by Erik Qualman. I was in a workshop on Friday on Social Media and the presenter showed it. I haven't read the book, but the trailer floored me.

How well do YOU do social media?

The video gets a little cut off--here's the link if you'd prefer: Social Media Revolution.

Very interesting, although would be a little more impressive if they hadn't just copied the original 'did you know?' video. That vid from two years ago was ll Myspace, Google and Blackberry, so it just shows you it may not be a fad, but it's not very stable either. Who knows where blogs, facebook and iPad will be in a few years time?

Interesting. Though, I never thought it was a fad. Social media is here to stay, I just think the tools we use will change quickly over the years. I always end up hearing the news on Twitter. Most of the books I buy are from online buzz.

No, I never really thought it was a fad either. I just thought some of the stats were pretty amazing. The audience for the workshop was an older crowd. :)

Catchy video. :) And I agree, I think we'll see a number of fascinating changes in the future of communication.

This video is amazing. Thanks for sharing it. Makes me realize how illiterate I am when it comes to social media. I know I'm not using these tools the way I should/could. In fact, just this morning I was considering actually hiring someone to help me sort all this stuff out.

Kind of scared and yet also looking forward to where social media is taking us. What a cool video, too!
