Snowboarder Kevin Pearce speaks at Google Zeitgeist 2014

Every year around this time Google organizes Zeitgeist where some great minds come together and share their thoughts and stories. Watching this year videos there has been on speaker that stood out from the crowd for me. Kevin Pearce, Snowboarder and today ambassador for the love your brain movement tells you more about his personal life where he went from the top to the bottom in a blink of an eye.

Fascinating story where you will find purpose in adversity.

What Moves Your Content?

Don’t you also want your content to be shared among thousand of people?

Find below what I believe is needed to make your content move. Youtube is a great source for this;-)

(Disclosure: The videos are my personal choice and not linked to any commercial activity)

 

1. Be loud

2. Be provocative

3. Be funny

4. Be emotional

 

1. Be loud

Watch the CWS commercial “Say no to dirt”

2. Be provocative / be misterious

Watch the Travel Book Shop Case movie from Zurich.

3. Be funny

Even though you don’t speak german I am sure you’ll enjoy this video.

4. Be emotional

The music matching the content creates even a greater emotional experience.

Pro Infirmis “Because who is perfect?” illustrates this in a great way. By the way the video has been seen already over 14 million times to date.

 

The online revolution isn’t over yet but I am over with my post;-)

The Rise Of Google +

The Rise of Google PlusA lot of talking takes place on the web these day whether Google + is going to become the second social network giant next to Facebook or not.

In my opinion Google+ has a very good chance to make it this time after being rather unsuccessful with Google Wave and Google Buzz.

You Gov announced the results of a Bloomberg / You Gov survey and here are some stunning statistics:

Google+

Already 13% of adult Internet users in the US have signed up for a Google+ account with another 9% planning to sign up in the next 12 months.  Those signing up are also highly engaged:

  • 45% of users report reading content once a day or more (only Facebook’s 62% is higher among social networks)
  • 46% of Google+ users report creating content (e.g., creating updates; posting links) at least once a week.  This is on par with Twitter (42%) – which focuses on easy content creation

Jeff Bullas has been blogging about this subject recently. Read his blog posts.
