What the hell is social media? [Video]

Social network logo´sWhen following us for a longer time you won’t be surprised we at Goyello love coffee, good code, geek tools and social media. Especially in Europe we are still facing an intensive debate about the (non-)sense of social media. Honestly, it feels similar to discussions we had just some years ago about the Internet and e-mail. For a long period of time companies tried to ban this from the workfloor. Without real success as we know today. Today social media seem to be the new victim. Companies try again to ban them from the workfloor. It seems we didn’t learn from the past. In this post I present three movies that show what’s going on. These movies are mainly based on US data, but they show a trend that is coming to Europe quickly, if it didn’t arrive yet.

1. What the HELL is social media

Are you not sure that you know what social media is all about? No shame. Probably hardly anybody will be able to provide you with an appropriate definition. In two minutes time this movie will show you what social media is all about. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QLd9q88ohUs

2. The updated Social Media Revolution

The first release (July 2009) of this movie used to be one of my favorite movies for my social media presentations and lectures. The updated one will show you how dramatically fast the social media landscape is growing. It’s something we can just no longer ignore. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lFZ0z5Fm-Ng

3. Vital statistics for B2B marketers (but not only)

Many marketers and business managers believe social media is a consumer thing. They tend not to treat it seriously. But this assumption might prove to be completely wrong. An increasing amount of decision makers is searching online themselves. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nXQdy-22TXM I’m curious what your opinion about social media is. Please share your opinion below. If you might have any question you can ask it below as well, or just contact us.
