Generation Social:

Generation Social is a film about how our inherent social nature drives cultural change and some of the people who drive that change. From culture to social networks to education to business, everything is in flux. By profiling those at the forefront of this movement, we will explore these very different fields, giving the viewer a perspective of the broadly diverse community that makes up the social internet.

As the Community VP at a social media startup that has played important roles in revolutions, emergencies, the ongoings of business and individuals, Dave shared insights into those experiences as well as how to harness the impact community and the power social media.
