Episode #640 of Six Pixels of Separation is now live and ready for you to listen to.

About ten years ago, an agency competitor reached out to me about a new product that they were launching to help individuals (and brands) better manage their social media and listening skills. The platform was Hootsuite. The entrepreneur was Ryan Holmes. For over a decade, Ryan has been the founder and CEO, and has helped grow Hootsuite into the world’s most widely used social relationship platform, with 16-million-plus users, including more than 800 of the Fortune 1000 companies. Ryan is an active investor and advisor, whose Maple Syrup Mafia syndicate is dedicated to accelerating Canadian startups. A future enthusiast (with a love of VR) and the inventor of a low-cost standing desk, he’s a hacker at heart – always looking for easier, better and more efficient ways to solve problems. Ryan is the author of the bestselling guide to social media for leaders, The $4 Billion Tweet. He shares his insights in Forbes, Fast Company and Inc. and ranks as a global influencer on LinkedIn and Facebook. Where’s the state of social media at? Let’s find out. Enjoy the conversation…
