With the explosion of social media outlets over the last decade, we seem to be spending more and more of our lives online. Social platforms make it easy and fun to stay connected with friends and family, share the latest cute picture of your cats playing with a ball of twine or check in from your new favorite restaurant. Mobile technology means that you don’t ever have to disconnect from your online network. If you’ve spent any time with teenagers lately, you realize some of them never do.
Not a lot in our lives these days is more personal than those cool slabs of connectivity in our pockets – our phones. No matter what systems power our devices – IOS or Android, RIM or Windows – we each make the device ours in countless ways by adding everything from apps to maps, from tunes to tweets. It’s how we talk to the world, how we listen, how we play – and how we work.
