The Social Media Revolution

An attractive video brimming with facts about the future of social media, created by Eric Qualman from Socialnomics. Reminds me of the classic The Machine is Us/ing Us. A few memorable stats:
  • By 2010 Gen Y will outnumber Baby Boomers
  • 96% of them have joined a social network
  • If Facebook would be a country, it would be the world’s 4th largest
  • 80% of companies are using LinkedIn as their primary tool to find employees
  • 80% of Twitter usage is on mobile devices. People update anywhere, anytime. Imagine what that means for bad customer experiences?
