The Future is now. We may not be traveling in flying cars yet but the world is changing every year. The iPhone which was discovered in 2007, functions as a TV, Photo Camera, Video camera, notebook, gps system, alarm clock, radio, phone and more. We can catch a ride with a stranger to any destination in any city with the help of Uber (founded 2009) or Lyft (launched 2012). Instagram (founded in 2010) serves as a digital photo album for its 500 million daily active users. CD’s and DVD’s no longer are in rotation due to Netflix streaming, Spotify (founded 2006), Pandora and Tidal. You can rent a room or home to stay in from a stranger around the world with AirBnB (founded 2008). Youtube (founded 2006) gives anybody the opportunity to create their own TV Station/Network. The world has changed in less than 20 years. Just imagine what the future may bring.

A new study released Wednesday by Domo and CEO.com found that nearly 70% of Fortune 500 CEOs have no presence whatsoever on any major social media channels, including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or Google+. Of the 30% that choose to engage in social media, nearly all of them (28%) do so through LinkedIn. And while the number of CEOs utilizing the other three networks is small, it appears that Twitter is the only other social channel Fortune 500 CEOs are moving toward (albeit, slowly).

Micro blogging site Twitter turns 7 years old today. “Just setting up my twttr,” Jack Dorsey, the co-founder of Twitter, tweeted on March 21, 2006. That was the first Tweet made on Twitter and it barely made a buzz online because the service wasn’t officially launched until July 15, 2006. Twitter now has over 200 million active users and handles more than 400 million tweets a day!
Happy Born Day Twitter!

The first SMS was sent as a Christmas greeting on December 3, 1992. Now we send 8 trillion text messages a year.

“Since mobile phones didn’t yet have keyboards, I typed the message out on a PC. It read ‘Merry Christmas’ and I sent it to Richard Jarvis of Vodafone, who was enjoying his office Christmas party at the time,” said Papworth. Read More
