Socialnomics: How Social Media Transforms the Way We Live and Do Business

To watch videos with millions of YouTube views and deservedly so, please check out Karl Fisch and Scott McCleod’s Did You Know? And Shift Happens videos on YouTube.  If you are like me you will love them!

Also, if you haven’t seen Marta Kagan’s “What The F**K is Social Media” presentation,  it’s amazing! Many of the same eye-popping facts are contained in it – as well as many more.  Plus, it does a much better job of providing insight than my video which is designed to grab attention.  Kagan’s presentation informs, check it out!

  1. Thanks for this awesome video! I love how well it conveys the importance of social media!

  2. love the presentation, what software was is done it. its well powerful, and gets a great message across.

  3. Cool blog. It’s about time to stumble upon great content for a change.

  4. Hello Equal Man
    Your video is wonderful and so insightful. So very interesting to watch.

    I am currently creating training materials on collaboration and social networking and we would love to embed your video. The company has a restriction on viewing youtube and does not have the capability to host flash. Would I be able to speak with you around converting the file and embedding and how we can reference you and give you the credit you need and deserve for this wonderful piece?

  5. Thanks for the post. If you don’t mind my asking, what blog theme are you using? Is it available Free or is it a custom design? Thanks.

  6. I’m late to the party commenting here – but better late than never right?

    Erik – just wanted to say this is the best tool period to demostrate the power of social media. I use it live on stage and in seminars all the time and it always impresses. Funny side note – when showing live from stage – almost everytime the audience starts clapping and cheering when it completes! It definitely gets them fired up and ready to listen.

    Thanks for all your hard work on it and your amazing book!

    Can wait for video #3

    Sean Malarkey

  7. #34 is sketchy information when you consider Amazon is the make of kindle and the stat is not inclusive of any other book publisher.

  8. Amazing video, thanks for the post!

  9. Thank you so much Erik for this amazing video. I’ve been showing this to some skeptical clients who aren’t really sure about social media.

    Great info!

  10. Is there a downloadable version of the video? Would it be possible to get a copy? Please.

    Mike

  11. Hello Dude , i read with Your posting. LOL Please come to my blog

  12. Thanks for the video Erik,

    I have been using it to motivate both myself and my clients in their social media goals. I just now presented it to my sales team team and got a very good response from everyone and am looking forward to helping them use social media to build their business.

    I look forward to reading your book soon!

  13. The original video helped me open some eyes that were tightly closed to Socialnomics. This update will help me to continue to help others to help themselves in this arena.
    May I use this in a presentation to Colorado Auto Dealers Association. If so is there a downloadable version available. Thanks in advance. Keep up the great work.
    Mike

  14. Amazing!! Mind blowing! Even if a small portion of anything was off it is astonding to read!! Thanks for the info, and the time and effort it took to pull all this together! We will be presenting this to all our employees for a powerful effect!!
    Keep up the hard work! It’s so worth it!

  15. It seems the statistics that “Over 50% of the world’s population is under 30-years-old” and “96% of them have joined a social network” is misleading. The key word missing is “online” – if you check the footnoted source for stat#2 it says that 96% of ONLINE teens use social networking, email etc.
    While I find most of these stats interesting, and use them with my students, I can’t help but wonder how many other stats here are “twisted” like the aforementioned one.

  16. Erik,
    You have an uncanny ability to articulate your perspective about socialnomics! Fascinating display of hard work. Congratulations. I am wondering how I can use this in persuading perspective clients for marketing? Video? Presentation? Copy write concerns and permission?

    Please advise
    Rob De Leon

  17. Hello Eric,

    I love your book and the facts are very interesting.
    Would it be okay if I mention you in my blog. I will link it to this blog:
    http://blog.liquidedge.co.za
    and use your name as a referance?

    Keep writing! Regards,

  18. I have to echo all the positive comments – fabulous presentation! I would also like permission to use it in a PowerPoint presentation for librarians and can you tell me how to embed this into my PPt presentation? Thanks so much.

  19. Awesome video guys, its definitely inspired me to work hard on my social media…

  20. Awesome video! Well supported with solid data.

    If you don’t mind sharing, what software did you use to compile the video?

  21. Sorry Erik,

    you don`t have any attitude for my question….? I could not believe.

    >>
    Do you have any rights/approval (maybe only sep. countries, only US-market?) for commercial use the music in your book promo clip?

    If not, what is your statement/reason to use it?
    >>

    • Klaus:

      If I understand your question correctly. You are fine to play the clip for your use via YouTube.

      Best!

      • No, you have not understood my question correctly.

        Let me repeat for your slowly:

        In your clip you useed music material from an artist (Norman Cook, “right here, right now”), who is represented by Warner Music Group .

        You use the clip to promote your company ,more specifically to announce your book. You use this protected material for commercial use.

        If you want to use ist for commercial, you have to arrange licence. These are existing, maybe country specific rights.

        The situation of nonexisting agreements between Sony/WMG and youTube is known.

        Only my questions:

        1) Do you have any rights/approval (maybe only sep. countries, only US-market?) for commercial use the music in your book promo clip?

        2) Why did you made the risk, banning your clip. The music is not the essential. You an buy directly from artists like on http://www.ccmixter.org , like Karl Fischer on Didyou know used

        2) If not, what is your personal statement/reason to use it after all? Provocation, extra ignoring, only fail by not knowing the topic?

        3) What is your peronal attitude to copyright thematic, as related to your own work?

        thanky, Erik!

      • No, you have not understood my question correctly.

        Let me repeat, for your slowly:

        In your clip you use music material from an artist (Norman Cook, “right here, right now”), who is represented by Warner Music Group .

        thanks, Erik!

    Hi Erik!

    I was interested in using this video in some presentations at my work on the usefulness of social media. We’re trying to set up a fb page and this might help get some people on board. Are there any copyright issues that I need to be aware of? Thanks!

  23. Aloha Erik!

    Absolutely awesome work! It’s something the world has to see…..and will.

    Looking forward to the next, and next, and next….

    Minn

  24. Erik,

    my question about used music in your Video is open:

    Do you have any rights/approval (maybe only sep. countries, only US-market?) for commercial use?

    If not, what is your statement/reason to use it?

  25. Erik,
    The presentation is killer. It’s hard to get motivated to put all the stats together, and you created a beautiful compilation.
    Love the fact you cited all your sources, gives me an opportunity to do more digging if I want.
    My suggestion for your next one is to include even more comparisons to “tangible” stats like population, money spent, volume occupied… I think that helps people put things in context and you have already done a great job relating this media to other forms like TV and Radio.
    This is a great tool to run at the next staff meeting… some people might finally “Get it!” Ha!

  26. Nice presentation in deed.

    but…:

    In Germany (maybe oher countries, too?) the Video you created couldn`t be viewed on YouTube, because it contains material of WMG/Sony.

    What is the reason? The music probably. Do you have only a licence for commercial use on your own (sep countries), not use on YouTube?

    Otherside: Why did you not used free/rightfree/cc-music to act global and avoiding the risk of a “Rohrkrepierer”?

  27. Well done ad.

  28. Cannot ignore.

  29. Great Work!! very informative.

  30. Erik: Great refresh! Your message continues to show the importance of Social Media & Networking in our personal & business climate.
    Happy to see you didn’t “re-do” just “refreshed”.
    I see Heather Ozur is using as a PowerPoint presentation. Any chance I can utilize for presentations to clients? I provide trade show planning for small & emerging businesses that exhibit at trade shows, conventions & conferences. I often have to explain the importance of incorporating SM into their event marketing.
    I’ll keep sharing.

    • Tami:

      Feel free to help spread the word on Social Media & Socialnomics. Excited to hear the video helps your presentations. Keep up the great work!

      Best! @equalman

  31. This is a great list of usable statistics. Information such as this can be used to help companies find where to put social media inside their marketing strategy.

  32. Great works. Thank you for material!

  33. I particularly like…

    What happens in Vegas stays on YouTube, Flickr, Twitter, Facebook…

    I love reading all these statistics. When you have the numbers in front of you, it really puts the whole thing into perspective and just how much social media has become a part of our daily lives. I can’t even think back to the days before Facebook, Twitter, etc. I probably spent half the time on the internet!

  34. Jochen Cloetens

    Amazing presentation!!

    A pity Sony has blocked the video now in my country (Belgium) because of the Fatboy Slim soundtrack 😦

  35. Are you making the video available for download in a high quality format?

    • Thanks for the interest Allen. Happy to help any way that I can. Just sent you a note via email that should be helpful for your video needs.

      • Hi this is a great follow-up to the first video. I also am interested in finding out how I can download the video if possible? Thank you!

  36. I think that it is definitely more difficult for defining a clear strategy when it comes to participating in social media. However, there are great sites like SalesFuel that integrates with LinkedIn, so that B2B marketers and sales reps can use social selling to make warmer sales calls. Try the free trial and connect to 32+ million companies with in-depth profiles.

  37. Max Mustermann

    WTF ?!? “Dieses Video enthält Content von WMG und Sony Music Entertainment. Es ist in deinem Land nicht mehr verfügbar.” Read: Your video is not available in Germany.

  38. Great site!! Probably ‘THE’ most interesting I’ve come across. Keep up the good work!!

  39. Thanks for your timely insights. @rcl4rk

  40. Just a note that your video embed code is iPad unfriendly, with no other way to link to YouTube itself. might want to look at you method of doing YouTube embeds.

  41. Your videos just keep getting better and better. It really puts everything in perspective and shows just how effective and popular social networking has become. It is a great sales tool. Thanks

  42. This is a great video! It really puts everything in perspective and shows just how effective and popular social networking has become. Thanks for the facts!

  43. Hi Erik,

    I love your video. I wanted to make up something like this for work- can you tell me what software package your using? Thanks!

    Eileen

  44. I enjoyed this video, and I’m glad that you’ve posted the script and sources this time.
    However I also agree that the juxtaposition of the first two statements is misleading – what it should say is:
    1 – Over 50% of the world’s population is under 30-years-old
    2 – 96% of US online 9-17 year olds use media tools like social network and IM
    (not “2 – 96% of them have joined a social network”)
    I’m sorry, but this kind of sloppy data use and wording undermines everything that goes after it!

    Also, you may be interested in my stats blog – http://digital-stats.blogspot.com

    Best wishes @dancall

  45. Hi,

    What a brilliant video and very well made !!

    As it is on Utube i am assuming it’s purpose is seo and therefore i think i will embed it on my site.

    i have also forwarded it onto a blog owner i know, so that should help get it out there.

    Well done !

  46. I totally agree with your comment regarding good old Dale Carnegie 🙂 His books are fantastic, I think anyone working in social media should read his How to Win Friends and Influence People.

    Thanks for writing the book!

  47. Another phenomenal summation of the importance of social media. I still enjoy responding the question of “ROI on Social Media” and I think the sense that companies who don’t participate in the space might be out of business in 5 years is a strong message. Thanks, Erik!

  48. Petra Slovenia

    Like the rest of the readers I also was amazed by the figures and facts… However – in the video, there is statement No 25:
    If you were paid a $1 for every time an article was posted on Wikipedia you would earn $ 1.712,32 per hour, yet in the resume the number ist about 11 times lower: … $156.23 per hour.

    Where’s the mistake?

  49. Great video…With proper credit for your efforts, is this video available for companies to show to their employees? Don’t want to step on any copyright/licensing rights…

  50. Excellent, I’ll use this with my senior management.

  51. Thanks for posting this update. It is a very powerful video! A friend of mine questioned point #5 about 1 in 8 married couples having met on line last year. Doing a bit of research, it turns out that the cited data comes from a poll taken in the 2004-2005 timeframe, not last year. A newer poll run by Harris Interactive on a sample set of 10,000 between 2006 and 2007 comes up with a much higher proportion: 19%, or almost 1 in 5, american newlyweds surveyed during that period said that they had met online. I was amazed at how high that figure was. Source: New Scientist, August 15, 2008 http://bit.ly/EYyf3

    I showed your video to preservice teachers as part of my research project and presentation on technology, education, and the Web 2.0.

    It is a moving and sometimes shocking video to people who previously had little knowledge of social media.

    Excellent job man.

    • Always glad that it helps to influence teachers! As a professor and also on the EF Education team it’s near and dear to my heart. Thanks for the positive feedback!

      – Erik

  53. Sahil Mehrotra

    I want to personally let you know that I love this video. I have seen it over and over again, and am in awe of the stats. Please continue to release periodic updates, I love these!

  54. Very well put together video and perfectly illustrates how big social media has become.

  55. Loving your video- thanks for making it and sharing !:)

  56. Love your video – Thanks for making it and sharing 🙂

  57. Number 19 is so true. More and more events and personal details are being recorded through social media websites and video. When do you think it will reach the point that everything we do being recorded and archived? Number 34 is certainly a trend that will continue. Kindle and other eInk readers are only going to become more popular. As the population grows, so do the number of books and materials that need to be printed. So, there will be much more incentive to reduce the amount of printing. Number 39 is pretty much a fact. Why would Facebook, Twitter and MySpace disappear from our lives?

  58. @Jan Firsching: We have the same problem over here. 😦

    Maybe someone can upload the video to vimeo or another video-portal?

  59. Your juxtaposition of stats 1 and 2 is very misleading.

    1 # Over 50% of the world’s population is under 30-years-old
    2 # 96% of them have joined a social network

    Since the global population is close to 7 billion, this would imply that something like 3.3 billion under 30 year olds have joined a social network.

    However, your own source for stat 2 is quite clear that its only talking about the US. It has nothing to say about the number of under 30s who have joined social media in China or India or Indonesia, for example.

    • I agree with you Mark. In fact, if you read the linked study, it says that 96% of **online** teens/tweens (9-17 years old) report ever using a social networking site.
      What’s frustrating is that this is still an impressive statistic without any misrepresentation – but the implication by the way it is presented in the video is misleading IMO.
      Also frustrating is that the author took the time to respond to most of the complimentary comments, but declined to react to your critical comment.

    • Mark/Richard:

      You both make good points and thanks for taking the time to send feedback.

      All minds think differently so when we view something we interpret it differently.

      For stat 1 and stat 2 – I place them on different slides and also don’t use the word “them” after 96%….

      On the (9-17 years) to keep the video tight/clean easier to view it’s often difficult to list every stat in the video. Hence, why I list all the sources along with the data points out on the Blog.

      No question I’m not perfect, nor is the video, but hopefully you found most of it enjoyable and helpful.

      Thanks again for sending me your thoughts!

      Best, Erik

      • @Mark @Richard and @equalman,
        Frankly, after reading the stats mentioned above (# Over 50% of the world’s population is under 30-years-old
        # 96% of them have joined a social network), the second statement just felt too good to be true. After looking up the numbers (here :http://www.trendsspotting.com/blog/?p=165) I discovered it was in fact from a Grunwald Associates US study (sample of 1,277 aged 9-17) which stated (back in 2007 might I add!) that “96% of online teens/tweens report ever having used any type of social networking technology including IM/chat, text messaging and email.”

        Equalman, when you say that “All minds think differently so when we view something we interpret it differently.”, it’s a bit of a stretch to think that:
        1.World population=US
        2.Under 30=9-17
        3.Social media=everything from social media networks to chat/IM/email
        I think all of this is indeed quite misleading, and in my opinion facts are facts, you can’t interpret them that much!
        Apart from that, your video was really awesome and I enjoyed the music too!

  60. Would love to get the presentation you just sent.
    Just sent out the tiny URL to your book on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIN groups
    Great way to engage and discuss social media to our faith based client that are slower to adopt

  61. We work with the Innkeeping industry and have been showing the past version of this to current and aspiring innkeepers to show them how important it is to get with the program in marketing their inns to their guests. Thanks for updating it, as we have recently been mentioning how it was out of date but still powerful!

  62. This is amazing.

  63. Thank you so much for also giving all the facts in writing. I can’t view the video because it contains an Audio-track copyrighted by WMG and Sony Entertainment… That’s something youtube desperately needs to fix: International copyright-compability. It’s so bloody annoying to not be able to view half of the vids due to these issues, just because my internet access is from outside the US.
    Looks like I need to improve my computer skills until I’m able to use proxy-servers or something of the sort…

  64. Interesting facts! Thanks for doing all that research for all of us to read.

  65. Great piece Erik!
    I have posted your video on my blog and passed it along to the Lift conference community which is currently taken place in Geneva, Switzerland.

    Keep going;-)
    Claude

  66. Thanks to WMG and SME it’s unforunaly not avaiable in Germany.
    Do you fancy uploading this to vimeo?

  67. Great update to the video, Erik! We use this video in many of our presentations at our agency here in Atlanta. It’s been a great way to show our clients the power of social media.

    I just posted an update to my blog about the new video too: http://welcometojmart.com/2010/05/social-media-revolution-updated-video/

  68. Good timing on the refresh! I’m teaching a class on the impact of social media for college freshman this fall, this is the video I was going to show them on the first day to get them hyped up, and now I’ve got an updated one! Awesome!

  69. Re-iterating what everyone else has already said, Thank You for putting all of this together…very insightful and yet at the same time, astounding! Is this where communication is headed…from inter-personal to virtually inter-personal?

  70. JUICY stuff here and adding my voice to the many who are thanking you for putting it together – use past videos (and obvious this one) in my talks and training on social media – keep ’em coming!

  71. I guess this video is great but thanks to Sony and WMG I’m not able to watch it in Germany!

  72. Hey Erik, best most awsomest video on social media I’ve seen yet 🙂

    Writing my masters thesis on social media and I can use some of your references perfectly. Thanks a million for listing them!

    I’m writing a blog next to my thesis and I’ve archived all the statistics I’ve gathered in the last couple of months here (http://www.social-brand-value.com/category/statistics/) if you want to have a look.

    Thanks again.

  73. Erik – This video is amazing yet again! I was so excited to see all the updated information! I love sharing this with everyone! Thanks for putting this together!!

  74. Loved the first one and loved the second. So compelling. I play this for clients and potential clients…and every time I still find myself mesmerized.

    Thanks for updating this. Though at this rate, we’ll need an even newer version in just a few months!

    • Kmueller62:

      Yes, we might be updating in weeks rather than months soon. When I sat down to edit I couldn’t believe how much had changed! Very cool.

      @equalman

  75. I reposted your first video and this update is more than worthy of passing along.

    And the musical “score” doesn’t hurt.

  76. My god its a whole armoury of info… great stuff! Thank you, thank you.

  77. Love this stuff Eric! Great statistics and awesome video my man.

  78. Phew, Erik – you’ve outdone yourself again!!! Where is the quadruple LIKE button?! heheee. I’m sharing this with all my peeps and at many of my presos. Your videos are second to none and are such an effective way to demonstrate the power of social media. Thanks for all you do to enhance social media education!!!

    • Mari:

      Mutual Appreciate Club Mari – love all the great work you are doing in the space. The fact you find these videos helpful speaks volumes with the clients you deal with!! Thanks again.

      @equalman

  79. Erik: I thoroughly enjoyed your book and the first version of your video. Needless to say I enjoyed this one as well.

    • Ricardo:

      Glad you liked the book as well as the videos! As an author it means a ton to receive positive feedback, thanks a bunch! Feel free to leave your comments for others on Amazon if compelled, if not, no worries! Thanks again for the support!

      @equalman

  80. Love it! Amazing information. This makes so many good points on the importance of Social Media in your business.
    May I use this in a presentation to Women’s Council of Realtors group in Washington, DC on 5/14/2010 ( with attribution) I will not have an internet connect in the room; do you have a way to imbed into a PowerPoint presentation?

    • Thanks Heather! I just sent you a note to your e-mail. Good luck and let me know if you need anything else!

      @equalman

      • Hi Erik. Awesome video!!! I have a similar situation as Heather. We are presenting to a group of Florida lawmakers and investors on why it is important to bring South Florida into the new economy. You hit the nail on the head. May we download it and use it, with attribution, also?
