Take A Break: Socialnomics

Take A Break

It may be another tough week out there, but it’s time to take a break from the mid-week hustle and get familiar with some weird and wonderful facts and stats about social media.

Introducing Socialnomics 2014, the fifth and most recent installment of one of the Internet’s most popular social media video series. Erik Qualman is the man behind Socialnomics and runs a blog by the same name, that you can check out here. In addition, Qualman has published a number books, the most popular of which (yip, you guessed it) goes by the same name of Socialnomics. The book is about how social media transforms the way we live and do business, with a number of lessons and implications for individuals and businesses alike. The book is available for purchase at Amazon.Qualman

Now onto the video itself, Socialnomics 2014 presents some interesting facts and statistics about the extent to which social media has impacted our lives. “We don’t have a choice on whether we do social media. The choice is how well we do it,” as said by Qualman in the opening moments of the video. It goes on to explain some interesting findings, ranging from demographics and online shopping, to dating and selfies.
