If we see the history of internet shortly, we had seen a lot of changes. There was a time when there was little beyond Yahoo, Hotmail and few other websites. We used to chat using MSN, Yahoo and MIRCmessengers. A very few people even knew about search option in Yahoo as search engine. But now, other than millions of websites most popular aspect is ‘Social Media’. Our life is so much use to of brands that it was quiet natural to create multiple temples of branding for ourselves. Now, it is a situation that there could be little life without Facebook, Twitter and Google. Innovations are coming day by day and more social media platforms are emerging with vast pace. Like ‘Pinterest’ has gained lots of importance as in 2011 it broke lots of records in case of reach and growth in social media. How people are shifting towards LinkedIn from Facebook is also considerable. How ‘Kolaveri Di’ became so popular song just shared on social media i.e: Youtube and made records of views due to Facebook and Twitter. It’s also possible that people may forget facebook and twitter take a gigantic chat room until becomes too irritating. And we might see more innovative products of Google or some other brands. People are also moving from java and symbion sets towards android. Use of social media has increased due to increase in the usage of android sets.
