by Olivia Cantor

Social media is taking the world by storm with its emergence as a very powerful factor, affecting the way we communicate and touching every aspect of our personal and business lives. For the baby boomers and Generation Y, it may be difficult to remember but the usage and existence of social networking tools date back to 1978, as a means of sharing information and of course, communication.

Four decades later, these networked communication channels have evolved into interactive online platforms with the ‘likes’ of Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, Pinterest, Google+, LinkedIn, and many others, enabling users to create content on personal and business pages through posting, sharing of photos, events, and videos.
