This semester has been extremely interesting and thoroughly entertaining. We’ve studied through the changes to the ASB surrounding brand’s Facebook pages, Target’s infamous children’s clothing glitch, and most recently the Alan Jones saga. What has been made very clear is the way communication itself is evolving through social media.

According to the Wikipedia Communication (from Latin “communis“, meaning to share) is the activity of conveying information through the exchange of thoughts, messages, or information, as by speech, visuals, signals, writing, or behavior.

To finish up such a fast moving, technology focused unit I suggest you takes some time out (as I have done) and watch this clip on A Brief History of Communication

Some times I feel we need to take a step back and look at how we got to where we are today. Social Media would not be what it is today if humans didn’t create smoke signals and paintings on cave walls, ultimately we are still doing the same thing today as what was done all those years ago…connecting! It is human instinct to reach out to others in some way, shape or form, these days it just looks and functions a little differently.

Adios followers, I’m sure our paths will cross at some point in time in the world of Social Media or you can just follow me on twitter 🙂
