I’m currently attending Web 2.0 here in San Francisco. One of the cooler talks I saw yesterday was given by Scott Monty, the head of Ford Motor’s Social Media efforts. I was so intrigued that I thought I would grab him for an interview. He graciously agreed and here’s the result. Enjoy :)
To watch in High Quality: after clicking play, click the “HQ” button that will appear on the bottom.
Some of the topics Scott tackles:
- Ford’s goal of becoming one of the world’s leading social brands.
- Setting content free.
- Innovation is made up of small tweaks on existing platforms that build value over time.
- How did Ford come to decide they needed a head of social media and how did they pick Scott.
- The two things coming up that Scott is most excited about: the Fiesta Movement and the evolution of Fordstory.com into Ford’s social media hub.
BTW, If you want to follow Scott on Twitter, its @scottmonty.
Pau for now..
