Alex Blum, the CEO of KickApps, has an interesting post today about the dramatic increase in social media usage online.
We all know in our gut that social media has been on an absolute tear over the past few years but the numbers are quite impressive.
We made the investment decision in KickApps late in 2005. It was the second investment we made after starting Spark. We believed then, as we do now, that web sites will need social media applications. There are thousands of big and small websites using KickApps to easily add social media experiences to their existing web sites.
I like BET's recent use of the technology. The BET audience was invited to submit their own award category introduction videos for the BET Awards 2007 show on cable last night. The audience voted on their favorite videos and the top videos were on the actual television show.
I thought this one was pretty clever for the "Best Collaboration" award intro.
