Hammurabi, Horseshoes and Hookers in Social Media
Understanding why social media works the way it does can be traced back to origins well before The Cluetrain Manifesto. I'll take a look into anthropology and the concepts of communal sharing, authority ranking, equality matching, and market pricing to analyze how social media works today. Most importantly, I'll discuss how brands - armed with an understanding of these basic ideas - can activate them in today's social media environment.
