2017 TEDxBeaconStreet Interview with Mike Platco. In 2014, Mike unexpectedly became Snapchat famous and everything changed. Three years as a social media influencer and content creator have taught Mike a valuable lesson: Famous or not, a career as a social media creator is fun only if you love storytelling. Snapchat, Instagram, YouTube – it’s all just people telling stories and there’s no reason you shouldn’t be telling your own.
