The Explosion of Social Media

I ran across an interesting report on the website Pew Internet Project that discusses the role of social media and the Internet in the American life. Here’s an idea of what the report had to say:

By 2020, the use of social media and the Internet will completely eradicate the boundaries of the work life/private life.

Well-connected workers will willingly eliminate the industrial-age boundaries between work hours and personal time, seamlessly blending the two thanks to the widely-accepted use of social media and the Internet. Essentaily, we will be able to attend to either personal or professional duties wherever and whenever they need our attention, sometimes at the same time, making working from home, the gym, the mall, a library, or communal meeting space common place.
