As Social Media has become a part of everyday life, we all are starting to believe that it may be as transformational to society as the introduction of the internet. It has become the new internet for most people and it's certainly indistinguishable by today's generation. What is even more transformational is the adoption of Social Media by the 55+ crowd who appear to have embraced social media in spite of their fear and avoidance of mainstream internet usage, in order to stay in touch with their grandchildren and friends.
