Welcome to episode #640 of Six Pixels of Separation

Here it is: Six Pixels of Separation – Episode #640 – Host: Mitch Joel. 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.

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…
