Kai the Hitchhiker, Mailbox, Kred Summit, Ad-Free Facebook: the Social 6 for 2/7/13

February 7th, 2013 was a Social 6 milestone, actually: it’s the first time, I believe, that two entrants into the Social 6 are pieces that I wrote. Why thank you, I think I will take a bow.

Since the Social 6 is determined based on your clicks and shares, it is pretty sweet to have two pieces in here, including my recap of the Kred NY Influencer Summit. However, there was plenty else worth reading, including Facebook’s epic fail on Thursday, Mailbox’s early success, and the viral sensation known as Kai. Here’s your Social 6:
