This is a well put together video by the guys at Socialnomics basically showing the explosion of social media usage. One stat that blew me away was that if Facebook was a country, it would be the world’s 4th largest in terms of population…scary. I’m still in Gareth kay’s (from Goodby’s) corner, as i believe the way brands can leverage this new form of particpative consumer behaviour is by creating ‘social ideas’ youth want to be part. This video ends with some good tips around companies needing to act like ‘party planners’ ‘aggregators’ and ‘content providers’ in order to engage people in this space. It all comes down to the era of PARTICIPATION.
