• Social MEowDia Explained

    Feb 22 2013

    While social media might be second nature to some of the more tech savvy individuals of the world, it’s a fully foreign language to others – even those that feel they have a solid understanding of the platform are often blind-sided by some of the totally new social sites that seem to be popping up left and right.

    Well, with that, we’d like to explain exactly what social media is and how the various sites each offer their own take on the technology.

    Of course, we’re well aware that you’ve seen social media explained to the layman before, however, in honor of our presentation at Search Fest 2013, we’ve added some of the newer sites, such as Pinterest, Yelp and Spotify, that might still have you puzzled … oh, and beyond that, have you ever seen it explained by cute little kitties?

    The answer is no, you haven’t. The only question is do you like that static graphic, or motion graphic better? (Social MeOWdia Explained Video)

        hey Doc … what network do you think Batman Cat fits? We can always do an updated version. Many thought we should have had Reddit in there too, but I wasn’t sure which Cat to use since “Grumpy Cat” was already taken. Any “troll” Cats out there? hahah

          Hey Matt… Batman Cat could work for Tumbler, seeing how that is where a lot of the photo memes hang out. But it is not very superhero’ish. Maybe Reddit would be a better fit as he oversees the good and the bad that happens in Gotham… I mean Reddit. =)

      That’s what google wants you to believe. They use a lot of trickery to achieve those numbers.
