Open Road Media’s executive director of consumer engagement
Interview starts at 15:13
Who put the “social” in social media? That’s one human being making a connection with another human being—so Bill Gates read someone else’s copy of the book [Business Adventures by John Brooks] a million years ago, and it made an impression. That’s what social media is. The “media” part just amplifies it, puts it in front of an audience that didn’t see it five minutes ago.
