The Internet has evolved into a network connecting people from one that connected computers. Much of what we do in everyday life is done via the Internet. Social networks provide the opportunity for people to be emotionally connected without the need to be in the same physical location. The real benefit of social networks is based on psychology yet many focus on and struggle with the technology. The tech provides the connection, our behavior is what enhances and nurtures those connections.
The world is on the verge of a transition where Millenials and Gen X’ers will be the drivers of the global economy while many baby boomers are contemplating retirement. The generations that have grown up with many of the tools in place today are more open to new ways of communicating and willing to adapt.
I would like to share my thoughts on how people and organizations are communicating in an effort to educate readers and expose them to new ideas on how to survive in our hyper-connected world. The networks in place today provide many filters and give users the ability to connect with and listen to those that they choose.
