A few weeks ago, I attended a workshop about social media and the workplace.  The presenter started the session with an eye opening video that really changed the way I view social media.  In a little less than three minutes, I learned quite a few fun facts that really hit home the point that the world we live in is forever transformed by social media in all its forms.

After reading Tina’s post today, I remembered that I wanted to share this video.  Blogging is a form of social media after all.  If you’re an avid Facebooker, Tweeter, blogger, or even emailer, be sure to check it out.  I think you’ll like it!

The world will never be the same…

The most surprising facts for me were…

– In 10 years, over 40% of the Fortune 500 will no longer exist.
– A new member joins LinkedIn every second.
– Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, and Britney Spears have more Twitter followers than the entire populations of North Korea, Australia, Chile, Israel, Sweden, and Greece.
– If Wikipedia were a book, it would be 2.25 million pages long.
– Babies have been named Facebook in Egypt.

Crazy stuff, huh!?

Did this video shock you, even a little bit?  Which facts stick out in your mind?

  1. Wow each one of those facts sound crazier than the next! In Nigeria, people are named after the days of the week which I thought was kinda strange..Egypt takes it to a whole new level! I’m at work right now but as an avid social mediaist (yes I just made up a word ;)), I am looking forward to watching the video later on today!
