‘Social Media’ for the Anti Social

In the realm of social media, it at most gets complicated understanding the real notion of the overwhelming, trending technology. As others crave for more sophisticated, classy gadgets, social media spans more deeper into the earth.

Our developer platform has already enabled hundreds of thousands of businesses to build higher-quality and more social products. We have seen disruptive new approaches in industries like games, music and news, and we expect to see similar disruption in more industries by new approaches that are social by design…” states founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who famously started Facebook from his Harvard University dorm.

Truth is how the medium has successfully extended services closer to the people, yet further been misused by humanity. From the initial fact that social sites are aimed at bridging, humans seem to have developed a gap when it comes to sharing. It is through these platform that one realises, or exercises a great degree of selfishness.

We believe building tools to help people share can bring a more honest and transparent dialogue around government that could lead to more direct empowerment of people, more accountability for officials and better solutions to some of the biggest problems of our time.

Much as social sites have paved a way for transparency, further sparking a debate upon the politics in play, as well as cautioning media’s reputation, the same vessel has been used to create tension, incite violence and further pave way for scams.

With Facebook having helped more than 800 million people map out more than 100 billion connections so far, a great challenge it still faces as it can barely teach humanity to society- if it isn’t inborn. It is just a medium, a path of exchange. Threat is that if not put into proper use, disgusting it gets, as many Artistes, business owners, ‘socialites’ and celebrities are into it, in search for influence, numbers, activity, but with no clue on how to use it.

Ever wondered why companies specialising in social media business exist, and how helpful they may turn out to be. Its high time you discovered the relish, that special thing- which makes a few people successful across social media hah!
