Whether you love Facebook or you hate it, you can’t deny it’s impact on the world. While there were other social media platforms before Facebook (MySpace, LiveJournal, etc.), once Facebook came out those were history. Facebook has changed how we live our lives. We can create accounts for almost anything on the Internet and on our smartphones by using our Facebook account. Facebook led the way for Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr, Instagram, and all of those other forms of social media we use. Heck, most of them probably have our Facebook information. All thanks to a college kid.
Before the iPhone, the iPad, and everything else – there was itunes. We used Napster to illegally download MP3s. But once iTunes came out it was a whole new ball game when it came to music. Can you even remember the last time you bought a CD? Before long they’ll be obsolete.
You may not have heard of his name, but surely you know of Netflix. In the grand scheme of things, Netflix hasnt been around for very long, but it’s hard to remember a time without it. Netflix has changed how we watch TV and movies. We have started binge watching our favorite shows and now producers are releasing shows in bulk so we can have said bing watching sessions. It started with Netflix, but now even Amazon and other companies are following suit. Many times we even forego buying movies because we know we can get it on Netflix eventually.
It’s been over a decade since the first Harry Potter book was published- but it’s left it’s mark. Ever since, books have been almost seen as “cool.” It seems as though everyone wants to create the next Harry Potter by writing a fantastic fantasy novel with an equally fantastic movie. Harry Potter has changed how we see books, movies, and fantasy – all because a single mom thought of a little boy living in a cubbard.
So… what idea will you have that will change the world?
