I have often wondered exactly how much of an influence social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn truly have upon reality. An article posted by mashable.com illustrates to us that social media greatly impacts the real world indeed. The article, and the studies it shares on this subject, tells us that online interactions are the catalyst to real-life occurrences. An occurrence that the article touched on was that sites such as LinkedIn and Pinterest have a huge impact on people changing job positions, whether that be within the same company or venturing to another establishment. The New Media reality that is unfolding in this present day and age, is that social media, and it’s effects, have now expanded from the confines of our electronic devices and into the spacious halls of our real lives that are made of flesh, blood, concrete, and marble.
