“If a tree fell in the forest, did it really happen if no one tweeted it?”
Social Media has changed the way society functions today from a business standpoint to personal lives. Social Media plays an active role on how a lot of things happen. It gives celebrities a more in depth way of interacting with their fans. It helps businesses reach potential clients.
Facebook Pages make it easier to keep up certain brands. All you have to do is LIKE a page and you can stay updated with what gets posted. With Twitter, you can just FOLLOW people and keep up with their thoughts. Some tweets are opinions while others can live tweet an event. Pinterest allows you to PIN photos and others can follow you, kind of similar to Twitter. Tumblr is like a cross between Twitter and Instagram. Instagram is like a Twitter but for pictures. Unlike Twitter, you’re not limited to 140 characters. With so many different Social Media platforms, it’s difficult to stay away unless you don’t have a smartphone.
With Social Media changing how people function, smartphones are made in a way to adapt to this. With a smartphone, all you have to do is download the apps. Question is, if we remove smartphones and Social Media, how difficult would it be to go back to how society used to before technology became so advanced?
