There are still those that are not convinced that social media have a real chance of existence, who still perceive Facebook and twitter as the next hype. Still these are also the ones that without questioning use Youtube as their number one search engine for music and funny video’s. Social media is all around us. We use it and cant imagine our lives without it anymore. So how much of a fad is it really? Or is the world around us (society to be more specific) changing and is social media just part of that revolution.
I love the pale winterblue skies, with the faint orange as the sun sets in the late afternoon. Makes me take of my gloves and shoot pictures untill my fingers go numb.
Yesterday, when trying to explain the concept of generation gap to my kids, I realized once again that their view of the world and their expectations are already tuned in into new possibilities and innovations. On finding out that my friend didn’t have internet until age 16, simply because it didn’t exist, my daughter exclaimed; ” how did you survive so long without it” and my son was seriously concerned and asked how he would spent his time and entertain himself. This goes for the mobile phone as well. The thought that I didn’t have one until I was in my twenties was shocking. The least of all because of how I would tell the time, or set an alarm, or get in touch with friends.
