‘Acha socho toh acha hoga’, this is a saying our mothers and grannies used to tell us. It basically means that if you think positive, positive things will happen. But little did they know that, what they said was literally true.
Fast forward 50 years later, imagine a world where things work only with a thought. In today’s world one has to type his/her thoughts on social media sites but imagine you could speak virtually without even moving your hand to type, neither any voice commands would be required. Imagine you could communicate with Siri via your thoughts.
We could have a much upgraded version of today’s Google Glass with new features. For example when you visit a restaurant and see the menu, you could come to know how many people have ‘liked’, ‘commented’ or even ‘re-tweeted’ that particular dish in a restaurant. It could have social filter which would provide information such as mentioned above.
Advertising would be more preciously targeted than what it is now. As with the help of social media pages which would talk about likes and dislikes, personality and characteristics about the person; the advertisement would be more personalized than ever, the advertising would be tailored to an individual’s needs and wants.
Social media will become the next broadcaster like BBC. Newspapers or E-papers would be replaced by social media.
We will enter a new world of communication. Social media and technology will create an all together a new virtual world of its own. One that will change us and the way we perceive our things forever.
