This brief video TED Talk is carefully planned and visually ornate. Alexis Ohanian, one of the founders of Reddit, tells a sharply focused anecdote about how a whale, Mister Splashy Pants, was christened to explain how social media works. This humorous, illustrative presentation offers an offbeat depiction of the power of social media. getAbstract recommends Ohanian’s insights to anyone who wants a pleasant primer in the principles of social media.
