Shall I compare thee to a Social Media?

It won’t be long and people will use the characteristics of Social Media to make analogies. Fortunately, the distinction of the top 3 tools is blurring. Have you noticed that the evolution of Facebook, Twitter, and Linkedin seem to be converging? One aspect I’ve noticed is the use of thumbnails to indicate the author of a chat, comment, or post. YouTube is coming along quickly too by adding social elements to what was once just a big video repository. In the future, when someone is terse or curt you will say, “Are you Tweet?” or “Don’t be such a Tweet!”  It’s hard to say. Social Media has definitely had an impact on the internet, and traditional advertising. It only stands to reason that the terminalogy and concepts will find their way into the culture mainstream. Look at OMG!
