Social media is one of the fastest growing, most exciting and unpredictable industries. In just the past few years, it has gone from nonexistence, to something used only by teenagers and lonely singles, to something that is almost as important as breathing for any person hoping to keep in the know. Companies are finally starting to take notice of the importance of social media, and they are devoting real resources to becoming a presence online. It is hard to say exactly what will happen in the near future, as one of the main features of social media is its unpredictability. But what is certain is that it is going to be a bigger force than it has ever been before.
