Welcome to Socialnomics: Social Media Revolution 2 Just Dropped!

For those of you that were fans of the first one, it's baaaaack! Don't worry, they're still breaking it down with the tasty beats of FatBoy Slim's "Right Here, Right Now", but this time, they're coming at us with nothing but mega social media stats. Facebook could be the world's third largest country? Gen Y and Gen Z already consider email passe, and 80% of companies are using social media for recruitment... hmm, this sounds incredibly familiar to all of us at Marketing Breakthroughs - perhaps that's because we eat, sleep and breathe social media here in our Ottawa office. Not that we're tooting our own horn. Ok. Yes, we are - Toot! Toot! Moving on...

In all seriousness, this video is an eye opener for any social media skeptics out there. If you haven't caught on to social media at this point, you've more than missed the boat; "social media isn't a fad, it's a fundamental shift in the way we communicate." Couldn't have said it better myself. Now go check out this wicked video!
