WXYZ on 2014 in social media

Today is another Throwback Thursday on Facebook, which makes it an appropriate day to post the first retrospective of the year just past.  WXYZ has helped make it easy for me with four videos about 2014 on social media.

First, What we talked about most on Facebook in 2014

Next, You Tube's Most Watched Videos of 2014.

I'll have more about the year on YouTube from YouTube itself in a later entry.  Meanwhile, follow over the jump for two more videos from WXYZ about Facebook and other media.

Here is some news that actually deserves a "dislike," No Facebook Dislike button.

Mark Zuckerberg says there won't be a Facebook Dislike button.

As I wrote on the video itself, "Thumbs up on YouTube, but dislike this news anyway."

Finally, something perverse that Michigan can brag about in Most "humble" states on social media - How does your state rank?

Do you tend to brag on social media? I think we’re all guilty of it from time to time.

But, give yourselves a pat on the back, Michigan—because among the most "braggadocious" states—we don’t take top honors.

Online sharing experts asked more than 2,000 Americans on social media to rate the number of posts they typically make promoting themselves.

That can include trips to special locations, memorable events and work-related good news.

The data revealed that the states most prone to bragging are California, Washington and Nevada—maybe everyone updating about their casino winnings.

Now, the good news: Michigan doesn’t even make the top 20 list. In fact, our good ole state was rated number 15th for most humble.

The data was compiled by workers from Heylets. Heylets is an app that allows people to share their good experiences without social pressure.

Now, let's go brag about our ranking on social media. Oh, wait.
This has to be the largest block of text I've ever seen below a WXYZ video on YouTube.  The topic must have been inspiring.

Stay tuned for more on the year just past, including 2014 in social media from the social media sites themselves.
