SOCIAL STATE is your guide to the state of social media.
In recent years, the web has gone from being a network of hyperlinked pages to a network of individuals. There are now over 1 billion people sharing their lives on Facebook; and that’s only one of many social networks enabling and dictating how we connect, how we learn, and how we act. Instagram, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Tumblr, and a long tail of social media services are transforming how we interact with the world around us.
Everything we know is being re-imagined.
In SOCIAL STATE, Esteban Contreras writes about the rapidly changing social media landscape. SOCIAL STATE is a visual, comprehensive, thoroughly-researched and in-depth exploration about the integration of life and technology; covering topics ranging from the implications of openness, virality, influence, and privacy, to the unique opportunities presented by social media marketing, social business, and social good.
SOCIAL STATE is honest, informative, and entertaining; written from a unique perspective. Esteban Contreras is an avid user, former Social Media Marketing Manager for Samsung USA, and a current strategist serving Fortune 100s on behalf of enterprise SMMS tech startup Sprinklr, Inc. Born in Guatemala City, Guatemala, Esteban is also the founder of Social Nerdia Consulting, based in New Westminster, British Columbia.
Esteban Contreras paints a picture of what the world is going to look like as social technologies become part of everything around us. Factual, opinionated, and current, SOCIAL STATE was written and edited in the fourth quarter of 2012, and completed only days before the day was published on December 31st, 2012.
