The Future of Social Media: 12 Provocations

33,000

Published on

What will the future of social media look like? Our world is increasingly digital, and our lives become more connected each day. Advances in areas such as social media and mobile technology are changing the ways we interact with our friends and family, but also with brands and organisations. They’re changing the way we do business too, and that change is accelerating at an ever-increasing rate. As a consequence, riding the wave of change and trends is becoming a critical part of on-going business success. To that end, this document explores some of the key themes that we believe will shape the digital world over the course of the coming months.
