Welcome to the information age. For much of the last century we have been witness to the most rapid growth in communication and media ever seen in human history. In the last few years, social networks have been at the forefront of that communication explosion, changing how we communicate with one another and how information and ideas are spread. 15 years ago websites were the vanguard of communication for businesses communicating digitally on the internet. Today, social media is not only the primary source of online communication, it is integral in how we communicate as a civilization.
