I had the pleasure of interviewing the “Social Media Diva” himself (as I call him), Gary Vaynerchuck. As always, Gary is candid and in-your-face but also very likeable and warm (neither of which I necessarily expected). Great chatting with him and hearing about his new adventures as a dad to his newborn daughter (something that trumps social media by miles).

Dan Zarrella (@DanZarrella) (Viral Marketing Scientist at Hubspot and author of “The Social Media Marketing Book” and The Facebook Marketing Book) studies the data, numbers, trends, etc., behind social media to give us a deeper understanding of it — he is a Social Media Scientist. His popular blog Social Media Scientist is full of unique, fascinating content on his research findings.
Below, Dan gives a talk at Harvard on the science of social media. It’s a damn good presentation wherein he busts quite a few myth bubbles (like our thinking that only “good’ ideas go viral). Worth the click.
