It's Day Two of Social Media Week NYC! You're probably wondering what that has to do with the latest YouTube sensation, "The Harlem Shake."

We were told there is a clip of people in Harlem reacting to the new Harlem Shake videos and their reactions, which are pretty priceless. Check it out here:
The lesson here being you should do a little homework before posting things to your social media accounts to make sure your content is as authentic as possible.
You have to admit, the non-authentic results can be pretty hysterical, too.
