Geekout with Matt Navarra - 6. Hashtag inventor (and much more) Chris Messina

Chris Messina is the inventor of the hashtag, but he's been asked about that far too many times for us to bring it up much here. Good thing that he's a deep thinker about products, platforms, and social engagement, and has lots to say about topics we love on this podcast.

Chris joins Matt Navarra and Martin SFP Bryant to discuss whether social media is at an inflexion point, and where it goes next. We also go in deep on Instagram's motivations behind launching the rather threadbare new app Threads; whether users will ever be asked to pay for Facebook; how to deal with information overload, and lots more.

Meanwhile, Matt and Martin talk over the week's news and share the latest tests and tools you need to know about.
