In the next installment in a series of conversations exploring the state and future of social media, Chris Beck, founder of 26dottwo (@26dottwo) and I discuss social media by the numbers. At any given moment, your “fans,” “likes,” followers, commenters, readers, are expecting personalized experiences. Simply catering to an “audience” is borderline antisocial. Addressing the needs and expectations of the social consumer and the various roles they play in business is the minimum ante to continue to sit at the table. At the same time, we also need to look beyond who we’re connected to today and focus on connecting with influential individuals and nicheworks who define our social and commerce landscapes.
This series was filmed at the new video studio at KickLabs SF where I spend time as an entrepreneur in residence.
