Nostalgia is a powerful thing. Looking back at the way we once were to seek comfort in what lies aheads. With Social Media Week in full flow, there is plenty of discussion about the future. And, of course, social media’s role in that future.
SMW produced this rather cool (if a little bleepy) video promoting the week. Nearing 500,000 views since it was uploaded on to YouTube 7 days ago. It fast forwards to 2062…with a cool silver generation reminiscing about the early days of the social web. In between the cool granddad shades and grandma slacks, it shows there’s plenty for brands and users alike to do before the social web reaches some sort of maturity. Exciting times. Starting with the rest of Social Media Week!
