What will it look like in 2025 A.D.?

The Future of Texting
By 2025 all texting will be completely hand-free
Rather than connecting your phone to your vehicle,
cars will begin to come equipped with the ability to
send messages via voice command without the need
for phone connection
In the future texts will be able to be sent at
predetermined times with details like reminders,
requests and questions.
The Future of Emailing
Similar to texting email will be able to be sent
completely hands-free by 2025
Offices will come equipped with computers that can
record in written format, the spoken words for an
email to be sent.
In 2025 emailing will be as easy as texting to be
used on a daily basis.
The Future of Social Media
Social media by 2025 A.D will dominate the
communication strategies of most companies and
Hiring employees will happen almost entirely through
social media advertising and research.
Social media’s growth will sky rocket due to its ability to
widely share information across the web to friends, family
and the public.
The Theory of the Long Tail
our culture and economy is shifting away from a focus on a
relatively small number of "hits” at the head of the demand
curve and toward a huge number of niches in the tail.
this relates to texting because while the smart phone in
itself may be considered a “hit” the smaller downloadable
applications used for communication such as GroupMe,
Viber and many more represent the filling of a smaller niche
that is different that the cut and dry description of texting.
Moore’s Innovation Adoption
innovations go through a gradual change of being
accepted by early adapters, early majority, late majority,
and then lastly the laggards.
Adoption can be slow and take time. The adoption rate
most often follow a diffusion curve.
Social media is an ever changing area of communication
technology. New applications take time to be adopted and
accepted by the majority.
Media System Dependency
the media, individuals, their interpersonal environment,
and the social environment have reliance on their
relationships with each other.
that the more a person depends on media to meet needs,
the more important media will be in a person's life, and
therefore the more effects media will have on a person.
Social media is a prime example of differing levels of
dependence. Older generation, not as familiar with social
media are less likely to depend on it for information and
keeping up with information.
