7 Social Media Videos You Simply Have To Watch
Rather than attending conferences I like to consume video online because I find that it gives you the exact same experience but form the comfort of your home or office and at a fraction of the cost with the online downside being that you miss out on the networking. The big problem of course is that there are literally 1000s of videos about social media every day of the week and most of them are not worth watching in any way. I’ve been bookmarking some over the last couple of months compiling this list so as you all had some great inspiring and interesting content to watch. You might not get through all of these in one sitting but I can assure you that each one of them is worth watching in it’s own way. Some are serious, some will fill you full of inspiration and some are just plain hilarious. So here are 7 of the best social media videos I have come across in the last couple of months…

In this video we get some great insights in to the person who founded Twitter…Jack Dorsey. A very serious person who is clearly very focused on creating great products like Square and Twitter.
Mitch Joel Keynote
This is a very engaging talk by Mitch Joel who is known for everything from blogging to having a large creative company and providing expert commentary on the industry. It’s a full 45 minutes long but I stumbled upon it one day and got lost watching it.
Jason Fried TED
So If I am totally honest this talk by Jason Fried doesn’t really have much to do with social media but he does work in the tech sector and I do love his work and this talk is so good that it is worth sharing far and wide. He challenges the way we work and the way office life conducts itself and asks us if we should be thinking differently in any way about work…
