Welcome to the Social Media Revolution

Wow. Want to know the impact of social media? This video, by Eric Qualman, is really amazing, and the statistics make me feel OLD - and motivated to keep up with the times! Some highlights, if we can call them that:
"In ten years, over 40% of the Fortune 500 will no longer be here."  
"If Facebook were a country, it would be the world's third largest."
"You Tube is the 2nd largest search engine in the world."
Here's the link if the above video doesn't work:
