Even though we are only two months into 2010, social media is definitely becoming one of the most talked about subjects – whether you are using social media as a part of a marketing campaign or just surfing online.
For the past couple of months, I have become more and more interested in social media and all that it has to offer. With that growing interest, I have brought awareness of this trend to people who are a part of my day-to-day life. Just last week, I was notified by an individual who has a mild interest in social media (for example, completely unaware that he was using social media channels such as Facebook and YouTube) of one of the top 10 viral videos of 2010 – so far.
The video that he was referring to is the video called Social Media Revolution found on YouTube. The source information and the video can be found at www.socialnomics.com. There are some great and hard to believe facts found within this video and even if you are not currently working on a marketing plan that involves social media, you will want to watch this video to at least understand what people are talking about around the water cooler.
Not only is this video jammed packed with interesting information such as iPod application downloads hit 1 billion in 9 months or that YouTube is the second largest search engine in the world, but the music that is used (Right Here, Right Now by Fat Boy Slim) helps build drama and a sense of importance regarding Social Media.
If you believe that social media is a fad that will soon lose traction, you might think twice after you watch Social Media Revolution.
