What is the future of Social Networking?

With the dramatic increase in social networking, what do you think the future holds for this ICT phenomenon? How will it affect what you do in the future? Are you concerned? Are you prepared?

    I think that social networking has had a major effect on our generation – we are too dependent on it – for gossip, being nosey and socializing.
    I think, that in years to come, socializing will be purely internet based – it is now!
    It is brilliant to contact people, and it is effortless – but seeing people face to face is better!
    I am not that concerned, as it soon will become the norm – well, it is the norm now! You are considered wierd if you DON’T have a facebook nowadays!

    I dont find that teenage lives can get affected anymore by social networking. In the next 10 years i dont think that it will change anymore, the amount of people on social networks will increase, obviously but i dont think everyones lives wont be affected anymore than they are already.

    I find people will still scoialize in person as much as they are now but such things as Facebook will still be apart of our lives as it is now.

    So to conclude i am not concerned and i think i am prepared. 🙂

      Will there be cultural shifts? For example, will shoppers be more targeted via social media? Therefore will this change the shopping culture of products are brought to you more readily and visually?

    I think that social networking will continue to grow and people may become totally dependant upon it. People will become less sociable and communicate through the internet. I think we are prepared but should maybe concerned because some people we definantly use it for the wrong reasons.

      People will always abuse systems and technology, but hopefully it’s only the minority. Do the vendors outweigh the disadvantages?

    In a way, I think it would be better if IT was to back off a little from everyday life, advancing with military and medical tech should not stop, but using it for socialising is a little like chewing stale bread, yes its food and yes it will satisfy, but it’s just not the real deal.
    And as unlikely as it is that we will stop texting, facebooking and tweeting, is it not nice to believe that the choice is ours, that if we wanted, we would not have to go home and tell the world through the medium of facebook that we got their safely!

    I think that in future a version of Facetime on the iPhone will be used alot more often & over a wider range of audiences and products.

    i think that social networking will slow down and facebook will become less popular and twitter more popular, mainly because their are more and more people becoming interested in celebrities and they want to see what they are up to.

    I think other things will come up which will make people less interested in Twitter, Facebook, etc.
