Networking to Social Networking

Over the last 10-15 years we have transformed from a world that once relied on large bulky cell phones or rotary landline phones (I still have mine and love it) to communicate with our loved ones. Who would have thought that nearly a decade later we would have access to new technology such as the ipad or blackberry playbook to not only do simple tasks such as make calls (using voip of course) and have access to virtually all public information at the touch of a fingertip. Its almost exciting to see the advancements that we’ve made over the last decade but this truly marks and re-shapes new opportunities in life.

Once upon a time, having access to personal information about a celebrity we had to run to our closest grocery store and look at the tabloids to see whats hot and whats not. Today with the advent of the internet and social media, not only do have access to information about them at our fingertips but hey…we can chat with them directly with platforms such as twitter. Now this is an interesting dynamic for a few reasons. First there was a clear path to fame where you had to hire an agent, try out, send mug shots and so forth. Now a days people, such as Justin Bieber, are using popular social media websites like Youtube to claim their name to fame. There seems to be less separation and more connection with the so called “famous folks”. Just the other day I was twittering with some of the hottest names in Hollywood. Who would have thought?

Social media and the internet in general has completely revamped how we live our lives. The ability to connect to our loved ones, friends and family is a true selling point for the longevity of social media. While I do believe that popular sites like Facebook will one day be replaced by other hot sites, the fact is technology is really starting to bridge the gap between different worlds (ie. the hollywood world, professional world, blue collar etc). Its provided us a means of being popular or famous in our own right and more importantly opened the door to just about anybody to jump on the bandwagon to promote themselves, their skills or anything they’ve got to offer.

We are at an exciting point right now and something tells me it will only get better. The various platforms for communication including facebook, twitter, linkedin, flickr, and so on each provide a different way to connect with others. The advent of technology and the new devices today that enable us to connect with one another will only get better overtime. The next time you flip on TMZ and wish somebody would do a skit on you, grab a video cam, post something of interest (anything now a days), upload to youtube and you can be a star yourself. Always remain positive, think positive and good things will come to you.
