We talked with Alex Iskold, Founder and CEO of GetGlue, about what makes social media so awesome and why it's worth celebrating on June 30. He says his favorite thing about social media is that it's "powered by people" -- and we agree.
Check out the video above to hear more about Iskold's take on social media, and its power to connect us around common interests and have our voices be heard.
