Social media molded the way we communicate:
Advancements in technology make it possible to communicate faster and faster and the world seems to be smaller and smaller and it resulted in a paradigm change in how we communicate, especially worth mentioning the hype of social media these days. Before the inception of social media networks, our interactions were limited and we were engaged with a limited number of people. There were things that we had a great deal with than these days alternatives of them for instance, calling your friend’s landline and asking their parents to reach for the friend, waiting the whole week for the letter in the mail, getting your photographs developed and waiting for their retrieval and so on. Social media had brought away these charms and we are programmed to being rewarded for something else such as online engagement of our friends and how they respond to your actions. The most prominent thing that social media had brought is the sheer number of people we can access. Another change the social media brought to us is that there is no contamination in what we say, it is delivered as it is, and your message will reach to others directly. Social media had influenced our lives big time and where there are numerous benefits there is a downside as well that we have lost our social skills.
Changed way of hooking up with people:
On social media, it is easy to discover and meet people. A great deal of communication can be done on social media but people are expanding their reach by in person events and meeting face to face. Use of social media is tripled in the last year as compared to the past few years and people are using to maintain both old and new friendships. In old ways of communication, people revealed very little of their fears and doubts and they portray their confident and knowledgeable image and appear in control of everything while these days people ought to be more transparent with their thoughts and feelings in order to show their humanness.
Altered thinking patterns:
People born in the 80s and early 90s can recall the moments when they sit with some close friends and enjoy a good time during the whole meeting but today we all have gone through a situation when during a good chatter someone phone buzzed and replace white screen instead of friends then others phone ranged and one by one everybody is busy on their devices and while that you ask someone about their day but no response then you realize that your closest friend is within inched to you. We are becoming more isolated to the situation we are attending as we attend our online audience.
The Influential Instagram:
When the concept of social media was born their developers would have a little idea of the real time factor which has changed the way we use social media and its prevalent example is Instagram. With the advent of Instagram, the level of intimacy with social media is at full throttle. Instagram helps you to deliver better content that will actively engage your audience and the authenticity and make it more attractive to the followers. Instagram allows you to let your friend circle know who are you, what are you, when you have been where and where you are going.
