  2. 2. Communication Technology: Texting Emailing Social Networking
  3. 3. 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.
  4. 4. 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.
  5. 5. The Future of Social Media  Social media by 2025 A.D will dominate the communication strategies of most companies and individuals.  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.
  6. 6. The Theory of the Long Tail
  7. 7. 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.
  8. 8. Moore’s Innovation Adoption Rate
  9. 9. Moore’s Innovation Adoption Rate  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.
  10. 10. Media Systems Dependency Theory
  11. 11. Media System Dependency Theory  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.
