Why is Your Mom on Facebook?

This video is by far my favorite talk I've EVER given (Ignite Wilmington). I was really nervous because the slides auto-advance and you need to stay on topic and on time. Thanks to +Brett Bumeter who dug it up & put it on his YouTube +BlogWorld & New Media Expo 2012 Speaker Playlist (Picking Speakers Tips BlogWorld NYC 2012 See Speakers on YouTube Playlist)

It was my lifelong goal to do a presentation with 'useless' slides completely made up of cat/kitten pictures and made-up statistics/graphs.

    So why does your mom want to be on FB (so far mine is holding out)?

  3. Very informative and funny, +Lynette Young! Well done!

  4. Lynette, You bring up a very sticky point… I've got people in my life that I have to get along with, but they don't want to get along with each other. Facebook exposes my consideration for both… Yes, one is a Mom.

  5. applause I didn't see the punchline coming, that was brilliant!
