The Future of Social Networking

The advent of the internet has provided many entrepreneurs opportunities that we never would have imaged 30-40 years ago. Today popular networking sites likes Facebook, Myspace and Linkedin have provided opportunity to for many people to connect with one another whether it be old or current friends, colleagues, or loved even loved ones. Interestingly enough the tween generation seem to be most captivated by the social networking phenomenon. A study done by some scientists found that when you put teenage males and females in a room together with cell phones, their primary method of communication was text messaging. As future tween generations arise technology seems to be growing exponentially faster and there will come a point in time where utilizing this technology will require a select expert group. The question now stands as to whether this is just an era of social networking or will it surpass with the advent of an even cooler technology in the future? Do you really think Facebook or Linkedin will be around in 10 years? 20 years? I’d say highly unlikely but the trends indicate that technology will be a highly integrated factor in our future generations. Although viewing and tagging friends on Facebook is fun at first, I can see people growing out of it. I know I did and so did many others. It will likely become obsolete and replaced by a new technology. The fact is technology and communication through technology has become so widespread and accepted that I don’t see it going away, however innovating new modes of communication will become more and more difficult over time. We live in an era where we thrive on new gadgets and wait for new products entering the market like the ipad or new blackberry devices but innovating to meet our demanding needs will become a challenge. There will be a tradeoff between social media and customer demands which might quite possibly collapse the entire social media communication mode or potentially force more fierce innovation. The point to conclude that I am trying to get across is as long as there is market of social media entrepreneurs who are willing to continue to innovate and as long as there is a market of customers who thrive on this innovation and are willing to pay, I believe social media will be in our future for a very long time.
