The Ten Gods of Social Media
Social Media can be broken down into 10 parts. Each part serves a different function in the greater scheme of things, in a way they are like the ancient Greek gods, each had a specific role in the classical universe. In this analogy Social Media is Mount Olympus and our Gods reside there and each god expresses him/herself in a variety of platforms.
The common factor to all and, “that” which allows us to group these aspects under the banner of “Social Media” is the Web 2.0 interface and functionality. Simply put, Web 2.0 offers the user the ability to customize the interface, via a web browser, without having to own any software or have web design skills.
Here is the pantheon who are The Ten Gods of Social Media, followed by examples to illustrate. (In no particular order)
Just as the ancient Greek Gods were an interpretation of the human psyche, the Ten Gods of Social Media interpret our modern society and digital culture. Which god would be Mighty Zeus, would he look like Mark Zuckerberg? Thanks for your time please leave a comment.
