The lifeblood of social media is content. Brandon Stanton, the creator of Humans of New York for instance, after losing his job, decided to tell the stories of New York through candid photographs on Facebook.

With a game plan in mind and passion, Brandon has grown the Humans of New York account to over 12 million Facebook likes.

This has landed him commissioned stories from the United Nations and has also launched a speaking, photography, philanthropic and media career. Humans of New York have raised nearly $500.000 for charity in the past six months.
