For the last three years, Marta Kagan, has updated her famous SlideShare presentation called “What the F**K is Social Media” and for 2010, the presentation has been updated with some more amazing stats and growth comparisons to 2009. Marta has also collected some of the best quotes on social media, from a few of the worlds brightest people over the last 12 months, to help depict exactly where social media is right NOW. Fittingly, the new presentation makes a point, that it’s no longer “what is social media?” but “what is social media now?”.
