    Social media has helped me with my acting/modeling/ circus performing career tremendously. I create a lot of my own jobs at times just by posting s picture. For example, instead of depending on a manager or agent, sometimes I get my own jobs because the person who is doing casting saw my account and contacted me about hiring. I did a bridal shoot for my portfolio and posted it on my account and then got contacted directly afterwards. Obviously if its a client that belongs to one of the agencies that represent me, I wouldnt cut my agency a lot of cases though, I take it into my own hands by finding clients by myself like following and contacting local boutique or companies and then directing them to my instagram. I do fire eating and get hired to play the violin or be a mermaid or princess for an event, more often after Ive posted a picture of myself from a previous gig or photoshoot featuring whatever skill I have

    I'm a nanny and an online presence can often be a liability. families like to think of their nannies as being nuns in their personal life because they're entrusting their children and home to someone with a completely separate life outside of work.

    You are one of my favorites is fascinating to watch the evolution of news\media\social media. You are among the handful of sources I can count on to offer...or at least do their very best to try and offer...a balanced and unbiased delivery of news and information. Of course, the risk for you, and all social media influencers, is being able to stay grounded and humble. Eventually all the young, idealistic leaders of any/every revolution...evolution... in social media, will eventually become "the Establishment". I just hope, you, and all the other leaders of the next iteration in the "new world order" a little more humanity and humility than the current ones do...I'll keep watching.

    Kinda, I do this stuff for fun, so it's not on a pro level that some people take it at. But, I'm a sprite artist, who also makes video games and video game commentary, (The Great Game Debate on Wordpress) I keep my video game creation stuff separate from my video game commentary. Again, I just do this for fun, so you don't see a ton of content from me.

    I am an actor and being present on Social Media is a must. Castings are decided on whether or not you have so many followers or not as opposed to talent. You could be great for a part and not get chosen some someone else had more followers than you and can provide more hype for the project.

    I've been a magician for 28 years and the parallels between how they talked about makeup and my industry are incredible! Everything from the potential to learn bad technique two older people sometimes trying to push down the younger people (sometimes justifiably most times not... ) it's amazing.

    Ok, I get the need for self promotion but did you really have to put in a 2 minute segment at the end making the video about yourself?
    It just feels like it does a huge disservice to what is an otherwise fantastic video. The content speaks for itself, you don't need to make this about your "fight with the mainstream media" again, all it comes off as is incredibly self-congratulatory.

    Genuinely interesting video- if anything it could honestly have stood to be longer. The Internet and unprecedented explosion of social media platforms over the last decade has had such a monumental effect on every business, profession and job sector in the world- I think using the make up industry as a jumping off point was a great segway into the topic as whole, and I would like to see further discussion and possible follow up videos looking into this topic in the broader sense.

    The digital world has done major things to benefit the medical rehab world. I don’t think I have met a single Occupational or Physical therapist who hasn’t used Pinterest as a recourse for therapy ideas. It also put blueprints and tutorials out there for “at-home alternatives” to expensive medical equipment.
    For example, in my class, we made grips for silverwear our of Velcro bands. It assists people with poor hand control so they may do things like eat and brush their teeth.

    I run an online business and I honestly don't think I'd have even reached the small level of success that I've had if it weren't for social media. Running a business is complex, time consuming and expensive. It's even more difficult when that business is a handmade business and focuses on handcrafted high quality products. Being online has allowed me to share my art and creativity with the world without going bankrupt or accumulating a ton of debt in the process.

    Had I tried to open up such a niche business in a traditional storefront it most likely would have tanked. I live in a small retire town. So there's not many people around here looking for custom handmade lingerie lol.

    All the points being made about this changing beauty industry directly match up with the tattoo industry. I’ve been tattooing almost 10 years So I saw the beginning of this change but a big difference in tattooing is a massive section of 20yr+ artists that do nothing but condemn and almost violently oppose the shift where the other half (mostly newer and younger) fully embrace it. And while a big contributor to the divide is a gap in technical and sterile technique but even bigger is this feeling of ownership that many artists feel of tattooing. “Keep it secret, keep it safe” is a mantra you’ll find in many traditional shops along with stories of breaking hands and biker enforcers from years past.

This is a rabbit hole topic that we will potentially never see an end to its evolution. So interesting.

    i think social media could be used in my job to increase business. nothing to the level of these 'influencer's' but it could definatly help get exposure. the problem is at my work the owners are original, back in 86 when it was started they were young and in the know. now we have zero online presence (apart from a small facebook page) and i notice just how impact full that is on a weekly basis.

    Phil, there's no reason not to call yourself a journalist; you're an American citizen. The first amendment doesn't protect a trade, it protects an activity. Being a journalist is like being a comedian: all you have to do is put yourself out there as one and be good at it. Sure, there are people who go to school for journalism as well as for comedy, but those people are called suckers. School isn't any better at creating journalists than it is at creating artists.
    Also the makeup industry always trips me out.

    I LOVED this video and I'm so grateful that someone has talked about it seriously. I don't think I ever thought about how many people actually don't know anything about the makeup industry and still don't get how huge and serious it is. At this point in time, if a brand (not just beauty but ANY brand) doesn't have a social media presence (especially on instagram) I really don't bother with it, because they're not keeping up with the times. And it's nice to be able to read comments and see what problems/praises people have for the product, how they use it/wear it, whether they like it or not, etc. So I think social media has played a huge role in making makeup more accessible and interesting and diverse for everybody.

    I know Phillip may not be the biggest make up connaisseur but I wanted to comment on three things
    1. CONGRATS FOR INCLUDING THE OG MICHELLE PHAN without her I don't think this whole industry would have evolved in the way it did
    3. I really wish Huda beauty stolen idea from beauty backery was not included especially as an example of a success story... She is literally stealing entire concepts from smaller creators... If bigger brands had stolen from Huda when she was starting I don't think she would have had the success she did

    I'm in school for Television Broadcasting, just about to graduate, and over the past couple years they have completely reshaped the problem to try and cater more to independent content creation. There's also now a new post-grad program all about branding yourself for content creation, basically how to be a youtuber or 'social media influencer'. It's totally a smart move on the college's part but as someone who grew up with USclip creators just making content for the hell of it and watching it rapidly grow into a legitimate industry - albeit one that has a lot of problems - it's kind of weird. In my program we often have to incorporate social media into our work as well, like for example I just finished my capstone project and part of the production phase of our project was making an Instagram account, facebook account, and website. We were literally marked on if we kept them up to date and had to post at least 3 times a week showing our process. We had to talk about how we should brand ourselves and all that stuff, and don't get me wrong I understand that that's an important thing in this industry and my field is certainly adjacent to online content creation but as someone who doesn't use instagram and hates the idea of 'branding' oneself online it felt a bit weird and forced. But it's a legitimate part of the industry now, and I find it funny that so many people who started out just filming themselves talking to their camera in their bedroom or making little shows with shitty production budgets and less than stellar editing have now completely shaped entire post-secondary programs and actual jobs in the media fields.
