8 Ways Our Lives Have Been Changed Forever
Leave it to Mashable to present a list of the ways social media is changing our lives forever, on Social Media Day. Mashable always breaks down the tech world into pieces we can easily digest. This time, however, they offer some insight that might otherwise escape us as we careen down the Internet Superhighway.
Everything Is Different
In today’s interconnected world, social media is the bridge(s) that crosses the gaps in our knowledge. From the way we share images and videos to the way we find employment, seek education and pursue relationships, everything about the human condition has been changed thanks to social media. There is no way to know which direction all this change will take us, but it seems to be a better place.
Where do we go from here?
Mashable likes to offer us glimpses of our future, based on the bits and pieces of tech which populate our world today. This time, however, they allow us to imagine our own future based on what we are currently doing with social media right now.
As we head into our Social Media Day festivities, we’d like to take a look at the effect social media has had on our daily lives.
We asked you to show us how social media had changed your life through our partnership with CNN’s iReport, and received so many wonderful, honest responses. We selected a few of our favorite submissions to display here, but you can see all of them on the iReport assignment page.
Here’s a look at some of the best photo and video submissions. We encourage you to share your own social media stories in the comments below.
“Social media has not only allowed me to change careers, it has allowed me to create a new career — my dream career — that never existed. I had a dream to transition from a design engineer to someone that inspires engineers and helps them break out of their technical shells and enjoy their personal and professional lives. Social media made it all possible,” said Anthony Fasano of Ridgewood, NJ.
