5 Reasons Why Social Media is so Explosive

Given that we have been punked by the dry erase girl it has become apparent to me a few things about our new social transparent world and why marketers want to tap it.

  1. We love to share stories where good triumphs over evil
  2. We love to talk and tell others about train wrecks for companies and people
  3. We can be easily punked
  4. We love watching video-and then sharing it-it takes no effort, none. zip. zilch.zero.
  5. We are suckers for top ten lists

I know there are more, but these were the first 5 that came to mind..

    Hmm… Apparently I’m a sucker for a Top 5 list. 🙂

    I think #1 is actually that we just like a good story. Verifying facts, maybe not so much.

    Nice list..i think a combination of 2 & 4 is always a good one…a video proving what a train wreck a company is!

    @Tom That seems to be the trend-create a video, even if it’s comprised of avatars
