As YouTube’s former director of product, Hunter Walk can explain how cat videos and other “viral” content are changing the world.

For real estate professionals, the implications are deeper than the phenomenon of viral videos. The rapid increase in the spread of information and feelings of connectedness engendered by social media are changing the nature of citizenship itself.

Walk knows his stuff, having joined Google in 2003 where he also managed product and sales efforts for the search giant’s contextual advertising business. He was also a founding member of the product and marketing team at Linden Lab, the creators of online virtual world Second Life.

Hunter Walk, YouTube’s former director of product, talks about “How Cat Videos Are Changing the World: Global Media & Global Citizenship.” (18:38).
