Social Media Revolution 2

Há algum tempo o Social Media Revolution é um dos vídeos mais assistidos no YouTube, quando a busca é feita por exemplos que expliquem o que é a tal Social Media. Na verdade, com mais de 1,8 milhões de visualizações, é um dos preferidos por palestrantes no mundo inteiro para sumarizar o fenomeno que tomou conta da mente de internautas, agências e clientes.

Tendo sido publicado em julho de 2009, o vídeo original tem a idade comparativa de um rabisco em uma caverna no Vale de Neanderthal, na Alemanha. Seu autor, Erik Qualman, nos oferece agora a versão atualizada de sua obra, inspirada no seu livro (e também nome do blog) Socialnomics
