Social Media: Open 24 Hours

December 6, 2011 § 6 Comments

This neon ‘Open 24 Hours’ sign represents social media’s functionality. It never closes. Social networks forums are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, on Christmas and New Years. Social networks that were intended to make interpersonal communication easier have transformed their users into authors of their own media. Through this a public forum has arisen where people receive and respond to information from multiple channels. However, these channels do not define or shape the messages being communicated. Instead, the public and mass media share, and at times challenge each other, on the news and information being given; allowing the masses to no longer be idle consumers but active players in the world of information 24 hours a day.

A little game I used to play with my roomates during college, loose word association. Pick a topic say the first word that comes to mind. Usually this game ends up going something like, fish, water, glass, tap, knock, knockout, punch, boxing Muhammad Ali, civil rights …. you get the idea quit tangential. I tried to use this same concept but a bit more strict to describe social media. Keeping some logic and order to my feelings about different social medias. Whatcha think?

yah well …

There is no need to rely on the website to have share buttons, or to spend time copying and pasting to your preferred social medium. This idea is extremely innovative and just one more step on how people can connect and share information online.
