How Social Media Changed our Life Personal & Professional

People have evolved in all these years and have experienced social media in their own ways. For some they felt the need and for some the life is good without social network and yeah there are few who want to be part of this social media but are confused and still couldn't accept this completely.

For the people who complaint about the social updates “that what the hell I need to do that you had a great evening yesterday or that you like wine more than a beer. If you are sad I am not responsible and if your husband loves you what good is for me”.  Boss why are you on social network?

Social network is a community for the people who love to share, love to express, loves to be part of each other and it matters to them what you did yesterday and how you felt today!

Social media has enabled us to have friends that are not dictated by geography or circumstance. Also helped us connect with old buddies whom we have lost contacts in past. It has helped us revive and refresh our memories of our childhood and of our youth and made us relive the past memories again. Isn’t that’s amazing? The ability to find people with whom you have a kinship, regardless of where they live is an extraordinary opportunity.

Our natural instincts are to be part of community and to be participative. We like to share, contribute, and interact. This is how we are. Social media gave us the platform to collaborate, to unite and to participate. It brought us out from the isolation of being associated to one family, one home, one place, one location. Now we have moved beyond the local reach and are able to connect personally and professionally all across. There were times we were not informed, we were growing in isolation. But today we have unleashed the boundary. We have come close and we love this place so much that our day starts with it and ends with it.

Today we know what are friends are doing the whole week even if we have to meet on a weekend. We are connected how are relatives and cousins are doing in life even if we meet after ages. Now that’s something great!

Today we need social community as much as we need air to breathe. Online community cares about us, supports us, and laughs at our jokes. And that’s a comfort. I can put my thoughts to world without the fear of being rejected. I can be open about myself without the hesitation of no one who listens to me. For humans expression is important, right or wrong it doesn't matter. This medium has given individuals the freedom to express and that’s impeccable.

You vs. The Real You
You don’t need to balance your personal and professional life online. People want to know what you did on the weekend and surely you want to share what you really did.

Actually, we all really want to do that. You've probably heard the saying that people don’t hire companies, they hire people. It’s why “chemistry” with the client is so critical in professional services firms. Why would you not want to pre-establish chemistry and commonality with your prospective friends, colleagues and clients online?
The fact is, your personal and professional lives are colliding and blending– and that trend will march onward, not backward.

Social Media has helped us establish relationship at work more easily because we can know each other more easily now. Moreover the relationships we have developed via the social Web are incalculably helpful to us personally and in work. Some of those relationships transcend the Web, as we've been fortunate enough to put names to avatars with many of the people we've 
come to know and respect online.

Social media is rooted culturally in showing your real, whole self. Pondering whether someone wants to read a tweet about your Sunday camping trip is no different than wondering why someone cares what you think about a hotel in Goa, via your TripAdvisor review.

The fundamental truth is that your personal life is almost undoubtedly more interesting than your professional life. Period. And, associating some sort of noteworthy character trait to your personal brand makes you more memorable in social media. People who try to find about you professionally on LinkedIn, also looks for you on Facebook to know about the dimension of your life, or character, or belief system.

In a socially connected world, where countless opinions and options are just a finger swipe on a mobile device away, differentiation is harder than ever. Your personal and professional life makes you a real complete person. And people on social media want to interact with reality and not fake personas.

"What’s interesting about you outside the office really interests me!"

Snapping in Real Time is a New Hyperconnectedness

From texting to status updates, photo sharing and hash tags... Sure, everyone’s on WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Twitter and Instagram too. But Snapchat is where people share what’s happening in their lives in real time. For hyperconnected #teens, snapping is like talking—only with videos, doodles, and filters.

Spectacles: the camera-glasses that have become the season’s must-have millennial accessory. They capture the world the way people see it—which is thrilling to watch. 
Memories: Memories enable Snapchat users to share photos and videos captured outside of Snapchat to your stories.
Circular Video:  With circular video, Snapchat has solved the age-old argument of whether video should be recorded and shared in landscape or portrait. And as more and more people begin to consume video on mobile devices and tablets, circular video could become the norm (and personally, I hope it does).
Here’s a quick demo of circular video in action:

From almost nothing in 2012, Snapchat has grown spect…

"Whatever Will Be Will Be" (Que Sera, Sera) | Children's Song

When the ultra-talented actress/singer Doris Day first recorded the song "Que Sera, Sera - Whatever Will Be, Will Be", she did not have much fondness for the song. After the final notes of Frank DeVol's arrangement of the original 1956 version of "Que Sera" echoed out of the recording studio and into silence - Ms. Day commented in deadpan fashion: "Well, that's the last you'll ever hear of THAT silly song!". You see, Doris looked upon it primarily as a children's song - lightweight - and she did not think it would have lasting appeal. Fate and popular taste begged to differ.

My impression upon hearing this 1964 version was that here, Doris infuses the song with a certain degree of extra warmth which is not evident in the 1956 version. In the original version, she sings it sweetly enough, but at the same time it is pretty much a "matter of fact" presentation of the song. Here, the love that she now has for the song in 1964 is qu…
