Posted on May 13th 2014
You may remember Erik Qualman’s very popular video The Social Media Revolution, that was originally published in 2009 in conjunction with his #1 best selling book (and one of my personal favorite social media books) Socialnomics. His original video from 2009 brought us some eye-opening statistics, including:

- That 25% of search results for the world’s top 20 largest brands are links to user-generated content
- More than 1.5 million pieces of content are shared on Facebook daily
In mid-April Erik published his newest video on the state of social media #Socialnomics 2014. This video is technically the 5th video in his series on social media.
