Technology’s Rate of Adoption by The Public
October 21, 2011 § 1 Comment
It has become obvious to me that both the adoption rate of technology and the rate of communication in society are both snowballing. The more technology evolves the quicker it is adapted and with new technology comes faster rates of communication. Technology has given people the power to communicate real time information. This power to share information instantaneously has given the individual a new authorship within media. It’s no longer word of mouth, it’s word of tech. In 2011 we use technology to communicate to our bosses, to pay our bills, to share moments, to reach to family members and to find out news from around the world. Before social media the individual was for the most part a consumer of media, but social media has enabled us all to be authors and journalists in our right. These images help us to realize how fast the world has changed. It took radio 38 years to gain 50 million users and Facebook only 1 to gain millions. I’m not sure what the end result of the relationship between the spread of technology, the increase in users and the decrease in time to takes to communicate will be. Perhaps it just shows how much we have evolved over the past century, maybe it means something more. Although, I’m not sure how much faster technology can get unless we break the time space continuum.
