Tara Hunt was one of my first exposures to social media. At the time, my mentor’s assignment was to read Tara’s book The Whuffie Factor published in 2009. It was a terrific first look at social media and helped frame my direction toward sharing in the early days.
The video below expresses Tara’s thoughts on what social media first was and what it has become. Her hope is that it might, once again, become real with SmugMug’s acquisition of Flickr. It is my hope too.
