3.) Social Media
20 years ago social media wasn’t a term people used. Now the term social media is as commonly used as the word ‘thank you’ or ‘please’. Okay, maybe that’s an over exaggeration – but you get what we’re trying to say. It is commonly believed that the first social media site was Six Degrees, which was made by Andrew Weinreich in 1997. Six Degrees was fairly popular until Tom Anderson invented MySpace which allowed its users to make profiles that played music and change their backgrounds etc. Myspace quickly became the most used social media website in the world. And then Facebook happened. Invented my Mr. Mark Zuckerberg in 2004, Facebook went public in 2006, and people flocked to the site. Over the years, Facebook did a lot to stay on top. It watched its competitors and added their most popular traits to its own site. Now almost everyone you know spends a considerable time on their smartphones scrolling through their social media site of preference on the daily.
4.) Streaming Media
Gone are the days of the television set taking centre stage in the living room. Not too long ago, families gathered around the TV set in their lounge to enjoy their favourite programs. And you couldn’t simply decide what you wanted to watch when like Netflix, you had to follow the TV guide closely to plan your time around when your fave program was airing. These days, you can stream your favourite shows or podcasts from your phone wherever you are and watch what you want when you want. Streaming media has taken the TV in your living room, compacted it, improved it – and made it available all the time! Here’s to never being bored!
