The Social Media Revolution

If you haven't seen this video about social media, you should check it out.  It's a fabulous summary of the power and scope of social media. 

Powerful stuff.

I was surprised to see these stats:

80% of companies use social media for recruitment.
95% of these are using LinkedIn.

78% of consumers trust peer recommendations.
14% trust paid advertisements.

Only 18% of traditional TV ad campaigns generate positive ROIs.
90% of people skip ads with DVRs.

  1. Good find Zack. I had absolutely no idea that they had updated the original Socialnomics video with new stats. I loved the original and am happy to see a fresh version.
