Entertaining talk by Gary Vaynerchuk at the Social Mix 2012 conference in Toronto.
Social media & Tech
Gary Vaynerchuk talking about culture shifts, Social Media, Business etc. As always his energy level is through the roof. Very entertaining and insightful.
For all those social media junkies. Here are some charts and numbers from 2011 about the use of social media around the world.
Improv Everywhere with one of its infamous spontaneous musicals. This time at the GEL Conference in New York. A speaker is suddenly interrupted – during his promotion of his secret startup “Twirlr” – by a man who refuses to turn off his cell phone. Enjoy!
This presentation is great. It’s fairly long. However, I think everyone interested in social media should take a look. It’s worth it.
A good summary of do’s and don’ts of social media. It has many slides from which a few are well worth checking. Nothing completely fancy, creative or new though.
Diesen ziemlich interessanten Vortrag zur Revolution von Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft durch Netzwerke (insbesondere Social Media) hat Prof. Dr. Peter Kruse auf der Republica 2010 gehalten.
Ich war leider nicht dabei. Ein Blick auf die Folien lohnt wie ich finde.
Update: Soweit ich das sehen kann ist das hier das passende Video dazu. Viel Spaß!
In an interesting interview with Tony Hsieh – CEO of Zappos – on Mashable.com he talks about “how to deliver happiness with social media”. While the whole interview is quite interesting and insightful, the part about corporate policies especially sticked. It goes in line with my belief of “letting go” and “relinquishing” control as much as possible:
We don’t have a specific social media policy. In fact, we try to avoid policies about anything as much as possible, because usually policies are used to address the 1% of people causing a problem at the expense and inconvenience of the 99% of people that are not.
By the way: Tony has written a book called “Delivering Happiness”, which will be released around 7 June. Here is a short video about it.
