Social media in plain english.

I came across this presentation video on youtube, the video was posted by leelefever and it is described as:

A short explanation of social networking websites and why they are popular.
This video comes in an unbranded "presentation quality" version that can be licensed for use in the workplace.

Its a a 3.44 minutes video is a creative and simple video outlining the principles of social media. The artist uses basic hand drawing to communicated the 'buzz' about social media. It isn't highlight the positive or negative factors just the basic factors of how it works.

I think the reason I was intrigued by this is because I like the way have have taken a seemingly complex subject and broken it down into laymen' s terms. They used the idea of a small town with many flavors of ice-cream as a sort of metaphor for the bigger picture of social media.
I think its a pretty informative presentation and I would like to use this form of educating in it's basic element.

The guy
