Social Media Revolution

Social media has changed things, from word-of-mouth advertising to studies of how having more friends can affect your happiness. Socialnomics is a weblog dedicated to social media and its effect on society, supplementing Erik Qualman’s book of the same name. Qualman has also produced a short video called “Social Media Revolution.”

The video has been hugely popular on Youtube, and though the wording on some of the statistics has been called into question, it’s still worth taking a look. Maribeth Back at FXPAL writes:

“Some YouTube commenters take issue with a few of the stats – so I wouldn’t necessarily use this for source material. I think it’s true in essence, however.”

Great music choice, too.
