what does social media mean to you? a video challenge from where is my guru

Feb 17, 2012 by

To generate some buzz before their SXSWi 2012 presentation, the peeps at Where Is My Guru issued a call to action to the online yoga media community. The challenge was simple enough: make a video response to the question, “What does social media mean to you?

And since I love a challenge (and social media), I put on some mascara and answered the call.

So here is my little video response to the WIMG gals! I hope their panel discussion, “Radio Free Yoga: Self Realize x Social Enterprise,” is a huge hit. It’s exciting to see yoga philosophy enter the public discourse on technology and engagement, and I really do hope the yoga community can set an example for other online communities. By applying mindfulness techniques to our social media interactions, we can counter negativity and foster respect.

What does social media mean to YOU? Tell us in the comments section below – or even better, make a video and post on the WIMG Facebook fanpage! For inspiration, check out their YouTube playlist of all the responses so far.

  1. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as
    though you relied on the video to make your point.

    You clearly know what youre talking about, why
    waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something enlightening to
    read?
