Share on LinkedIn

You may have seen the earlier version of this video titled ‘Social Media Revolution’ – It has clocked up more than 1.8 million views on YouTube. It boasted some pretty startling facts, which back in 2010 was really impressive for many of us and throw in the ‘Right here, right now’ soundtrack courtesy of Fat Boy Slim, there’s no wonder it was popular.

Now Erik Qualman and the team at Socialnomics are back with an updated version keeping with the same successful soundtrack. Here it is, right here, right now:

Whenever you see productions like this you have to be amazed by at least some of the stats and I have to admit my head spins over some of it including:
– If Wikipedia was printed it would be 2.25 million pages long
– There’s actually parents in Egypt naming their kids Facebook & Twitter
– I’ve heard it before but continue to be amazed that every day 20% of Google searches have never been searched before
– Humbling to find out 50% of the world’s population is younger than I
