Sometimes when you are entrenched or involved in something you can think its bigger than it is, but this is not the case with social media as whole. Social media has changed the dynamic of how our society interacts, receives and transfers information.

It is our society progressing, changing the way we communicate and wanting information faster and easier. As they explain: “we no longer search for news . . . the news finds us — we will no longer search for products and services . . . they will find us via social media.”
But enough with the quotes – watch it yourself to see what I mean.
