Top Ten Social Media Tips from Oprah, President Obama, and Lady Gaga [VIDEO + infographic]

Can businesses take lessons about social media from politicians and celebrities?

Yes, they can—and they should.

People in politics and global entertainment are on the front lines in the strategic use of social media.

Here at the CDO Club we have been fortunate to have leaders from both worlds share their social media secrets during several presentations given at our 2013 CDO Summit.

Those speakers and panelists included:

  • Teddy Goff: Digital Director of Barack Obama’s 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns
  • Harriet Seitler: CMO and EVP for Harpo Studies and OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network)
  • Laxmi Wordham: CDO at the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research
  • Rosemary Maggiore: former President of Digital for Rachael Ray
  • Katarina Markov: Head of Global Innovation at Atom Factory, an agency that represents Lady Gaga, John Legend, and other artists

Here is a distillation of their social media lessons in one handy info graphic (H/T Sam Kuo):
