Social Media Trends in 2010

***This post was one of the lost kaponetwo entries, but thanks to Wayback Machine web archive I was able to restore it!***

Yesterday  I went to the Social Media Trends in 2010 presentation to hear Scott Stratton speak.  He runs a company called UnMarketing and I was really looking forward to hearing what he had to say.  I went with Currybomb and we just made it in time, luckily Casie had saved us seats.

I was really impressed with Scott’s presentation.  He was very engaging and I actually took notes and learned a lot.  If you follow me on Twitter you likely saw my favourite quotes of the evening:

“Twitter is my trusted Google”

“Twitter is like a water cooler for Entrepreneurs”

“If you don’t know who the creepy dude is in your office, you are the creepy dude”

He really gets social media and his philosophy “stop marketing, start engaging” makes sense.  Scott/UnMarketing started on Twitter in Jan 2009 and logged 7,000 tweets in his first month to be relevant.  This hard work earned him a book deal and I am definitely going to read it when it comes out.  Thanks to UnMarketing & Refresh Events for putting on a great event.

Afterwards I went with Sean, new friend Sheldon & Casie to her house for a food and a hang before Kathryn picked my up to go to our next event.  It was a blast hanging with you guys and we’ll have to do it again soon!
