The Big 3 Heading into 2014

This week the world saw the Social Pros Podcast turn 100 – episodes, that is. To celebrate, we brought back our former co-host Eric Boggs together with half a dozen of our esteemed past guests into a Google Hangout and then asked you to join.

Joining our usual hosts on the show this week are:

The pros discover a handful of pressing and timely topics, including their diverse backgrounds in social media and how they got to where they are today, along with new up-and-comers like Jelly and Jessica’s forthcoming book The Power of Visual Storytelling, which she cowrote with Ekaterina Walter.

The big three questions they tackle are as follows.

  1. What in social has changed for you over the past year?

  2. Which new channels, apps, or other new toys have crossed your radar in the past year and become important?

  3. What are you most excited to get involved in this year?

In case you missed the live Hangout, or if you want to watch it again, here it is.
