Facebook, Twitter and many other social networking sites have become an integral part of life. The year 2011 is at its near end. This year has witnessed the launch of several mobile devices, smart phones, electronic gadgets, tablets, new blogging tools and many other special products. Collectively, these gadgets and applications have changed the lifestyle of millions of people.
It is highly difficult to find out a person without a smart phone or a tablet or an iPhone or the one without having an FB account. Communication is made at lightning speed with the help of social networking sites. Twitter played as an effective tool in organizing events across the world and many countries have lost their governments because of the ploys made through twitter.
Facebook and Its Impact:
Facebook and Twitter has created a digital revolution. It had outsmarted Google’s Orkut and this popular networking site of the yesteryear has become a dump yard in the recent times. FB started attracting a huge fan following in the past 3 years and currently has 664 million subscribers across the world. This is an amazing accomplishment and there are several applications being built targeting this social platform. It has created a huge number of job opportunities for the application developers and the FB applications are worth several billion dollars now.
People have become so addicted to their FB accounts and do not want to miss out any of the updates made by their friend. They start their day by having a “Great Day Ahead” status message and ends the day with “Sleepy and Tired” status message. It is needless to say that people have become tired by watching out so many videos, updating pictures, profiles in FB. On an average, every individual spends about 2 a 3 hours in their FB account in the most developed countries.
Twitter and Its Impact:
The micro blogging site was one if its first kind. Innovation pays off and Twitter became a rage in the society. Egyptian revolution and the fight against dictatorship took shape in this very platform. The news spread like wild fire in a fraction of second. People were able to see the tweets and were constantly updated on what’s happening in Ground Zero situations. A proper picture of what’s happening in and around the places was updated through tweets by several people. The earthquake news in Haiti reached the Americans and the rest of the world before the after shock waves could reach the geographical spot. It was calculated that the information traveled faster than the earthquake waves.
Apple and Steve Jobs have become the icon of innovation in style. The technological advancements made through innovation in Apple products have taken the market by a storm. Apple went on to become the most valuable company in terms of market valuation in just 4 years of time and nobody expected this to happen. There is a lot to happen in the year 2012 and let’s hope for the best!
