Carrie Gouldin, ThinkGeek's Head of Social Media Mayhem states, "Bananas!"  Gouldin had been responsible for ThinkGeek's strong social media presence for over four years.  The strategy she has brought to ThinkGeek's social program hinges on the simple fact that audiences enjoy timely, entertaining content and not just ThinkGeek-centric updates.
