So 2014 is now well and truly upon us and I think I am right in saying our lives would be incomplete now without the social web. When you take a careful look around everyone seems to have their smartphone either glued to the palm of their hand or a tablet within grabbing distance. It appears we have all become obsessed or addicted to using our phones and we seem to get a strange kind of anxiety when we can’t find them.
What did we do before mobile devices? I remember trying to arrange to meet friends when I was a teenager and you never quite knew if they were going to turn up late or not but today it doesn’t matter as you can tweet, Whatsapp, text or even -heaven forbid – actually call them. This enables us all to have that constant always-on access to the internet and stay in touch by our social media channels.
But how has the development of online activity over the past two decades resulted in this compulsive need to feel connected? We have taken a punt at identifying the top ten game changers in the history of social media as it actually stands today. We know you’ll agree with some of our points, and have ideas of your own on some of the others. One thing’s for sure, everyone on our list have been major contributors to the evolution of what we now call social media, and have helped shape the way we communicate in modern society.
Whether you agree with our list below or not, this should be a good start for a discussion. If you have one you want to add your opinion, please feel free to let me know in the comments section.
