Social Media, Statistics and The End

Social media is not a fad; it's the biggest change in technology for over a hundred years.  That's what Socialnomics have told us anyway, and it makes sense.  Social media is HUGE and seems to be taking over the world.

However, The Poke have created a very good video talking about social media and the time wasted on it.  This also makes sense and is a good reminder to be careful of what you spend your time on.  Check it out below, but make sure you get the context and watch the Socialnomics video first for the full effect!

Social media is the end of reliable information?  It depends on how you use it.  Think about what you are doing on it, why you are using it and where it comes in your life first and it can be amazing but, like any power, in the wrong hands it can be destructive.
