Welcome To The Social Media Revolution!

Still wondering about the importance of Social Media on society? Well, think about this:
Facebook tops Google for weekly traffic in the U.S.
Kindergartens are learning on iPads, not chalkboards.
Generation Y and Z consider e-mail yesterdays news.
YouTube is the second largest search engine in the world.

Those are just a few of the facts included in the latest installment of “Social Media Revolution.”

The video is produced by Socialnomics author Erik Qualman, who has created several similar videos, and keeps updating them with new data.

The latest video in the series is updated with data up to June 2011 and contains several interesting highlights:

95% of companies using social media for recruitment use LinkedIn.
Groupon will reach $1 billion in sales faster than any company in history.
93% of marketers use social media for business.
Social gamers will buy $6 billion in virtual goods by 2013.

The ROI of Social Media is: your business will still exist in 5 years!

The facts are there and I could not think of a more eloquent way to share them than sharing this video. What do you think? Check it out below and tell us in the comments.
