Back to School Goes Social.

Posted on: 08/28/12

Social media has changed the way we communicate. We’ve studied this phenomenon, ruminated on it, strategized, contemplated and conclusively confirmed that social media has indeed changed our behaviors. The more we thought about it, the more we realized that these changes affected us quite quickly. Like, super duper fast.

Let’s flashback to 2007 to  demonstrate.

College freshman in 2007:

From ‘meeting’ new roommates and classmates digitally before stepping foot on campus, to tweeting their plans and navigating campus via Google Maps, students these days have smartphones tethered to them at all times. They’re strategically using social media to ease their transition into college life. Oh, how times have changed!

If we forgot something that should be part of this list, tweet it to us @SocialLightUp!
