How do you think social media will change in the future? What other trends would you add to the mix? Are they any specific technologies that you think will gain popularity or emerge?

Social Media today has a huge impact on everyone’s day to day life whether it is Facebook, Twitter or any online posting. Our whole day revolves around updating our statuses or checking the social trends. Social Media has already changed so much in the past few years, but I think that it will grow even more as the Baby Boomers become more involved and learn how to use it. It will become second nature and no one will think any differently that it is being forced upon us. I think it will change drastically because now it is integrated in everything we do. Watching the news even our favorite shows they tell you to ``tweet`` and stay connected. It allows companies to advertise themselves freely and using it to receive feedback on how to improve their business. Even having a course like Social Media it will increase the awareness as we grow up and use it to our advantage to be successful business associate. As social media changes in the future they will instill in our brains that we need to keep up with the movement and get us to try new things. Some trends that I would add to the mix are the popularity of these smart phones and how everything you could possibly think of can be done. Searching on the web, playing games and even managing your bank account why would you have to think for yourself anymore everything is at your fingertips. New applications like Instagram will definitely gain popularity because everyone likes to take pictures as milestones to their day to day life. This application allows you to add it to a feed and look at other pictures of the people you decide to follow. As my last posting in my Social Media class I am looking forward to see all the crazy new ways inventors decide how to update technology and use it to their advantage.
