The future of the social networks:

El futuro de las redes sociales:

  • Hi Jessica. This is one of the threads/opportunities that technology can provide- facilitate us and make everything easy for human kind. But maybe it makes everything too easy and we end up being completely dependent on technology.
    I do agree with you that it's kind of cheating that the oven cooks for you but I'm sure that there will be many people who would gladly have one of those. I mean think about it, we're already cheating- instead of washing the clothes by hand we use washing machines. Difference is that, with the online networks and digital life, we will take this to another level and the oven could cook for you delicious dishes and will post it on your timeline.

  • I'm not sure I want my oven to cook for me. It feels a bit like cheating :)

The Future of the Social Networks. Scientific Research.

  1. 1. The future of the social networks January 2013 Autors: Antonio Valdivia Yanna Stefanu Mitka Yanakieva
  2. 2. There are 2 important questions to start with What will provoke changes in the social networks? New technological discoveries or people’s creativity?
  3. 3. And the answer is...Both factors alternate depending on the situation we arein In the very beginning of the research, IT experts showed confidence that now is the time for the human creativity to blossom and find amazing applications of the already existing technologies
  4. 4. Which technologies and trends can be used as toolsof the human creativity and in what direction will people`s ideas develop? During the research we detected 6 important technologies that will be crucial for the social networks evolvement in the next 3 to 5 years. The majority of them are in an advanced stage of their development and can be put into practice without serious professional IT knowledge.
  5. 5. Image Recognition• Image recognition is in a stage of development that allows it to be already put into practice. Imagine that a group of friends takes a photo in front of the Westminster Abby in London. The social network they upload the photo to will automatically recognize and tag the friends and will also recognize the Westminster Abby and add its location on the picture.
  6. 6. Geolocation • Geolocation is quite developed as a technology, it just needs to be refined when putting it into practice in applications and web software that is aiming at everyday users. Imagine that you are taking a walk inthe centre of your city and you receive a notification on your smart phonethat a couple of your friends are in a restaurant 20 meters away. If you jointhem you receive 10 % discount of the menu.
  7. 7. Internet of things •Still in development and needs to be further improved. Internet of things will further convert the web into a mist that surrounds us completely. We can put the turkey inside the cookerand the oven will know when to increase the temperature and when to lowerit. We won`t have to do this manually because the oven will be connected tointernet, it can check the recipe and download the software for cooking thefood.
  8. 8. What changes will the users bring to the weband social networks?How will we behave in the future socialnetworks?How future social networks will changebusiness?Do you want to see the check list of the mostprobable changes that will occur in the weband the online networks in the next 3- 5 years?
