Welcome to the Conversation Economy

Aisha Hillary, Senior Marketing & New Media Specialist, SBS; me

Last week, I attended Social Media Junction - NZ's biggest event on the topic du jour. One of the keynote speakers, Aisha Hillary of played a video loaded with factoids and trivia... which stuck in my mind.

Social Media is all about conversations and Socialnomics is the new economy. See the clip and you'll know what got millions of them started.

Is Social Media a fad... or a phenomenon?

For the skeptics out there, the above compilation is credited to Erik Qualman, who offers data sources in his book and website... SocialNomics.

If, like me, you enjoy UGC (user-generated content) without getting too caught up in it, you must check out the fascinating Did You Know videos. Pure brain-candy!

Mr. Madness would like to thank Geeta SK for the pic above.
