Keep The Social Spirit Alive

Everyone is forewarned that the Internet is forever. In other words, the things that you post on your social media sites can pop in different aspects of your life at any time. Individuals have become cautious with the amount of information they have put onto these sites because of this reason. However, in Laurent Francois article he claims the exact opposite. Francois believes that just as technologies fade, social media fades as well.

Francois argument is accurate because we have seen AOL instant messenger fade as well as Myspace. Facebook is in it’s way out the technological door as well. Francois’ point is that while these social media outlets fade out, our information and history with the sites go with them. In an article by Chris Anderson and Michael Wolff, “The Web Is Dead. Long Live the Internet.” they address these exact issues relating it to the shift from the world web to simple internet explorer platforms. They write “Over the past few years, one of the most important shifts in the digital world has been the move from the wide-open Web to semiclosed platforms that use the Internet for transport but not the browser for display.”

Technology and social medias are fast pace changing and there is no option to slow the process down, but it is possible to preserve our aspects on these social media devices. Twitter’s most recent update has made all members tweets public, which has eliminated the option for anything to be changed or forgotten with the emergence of new technologies.
