SOCIAL MEDIA: You Can't Stop the Signal

Social media is the bottle; we're the genie.  There's no getting us back in.  As we keep on seeing, time and again.

People are hard-wired to communicate.  Like a flower looking for light, we always seek the opportunities to express ourselves.  This technological trend has been to make this communication quicker, more expansive, and in shorter bursts.  The very structure of Twitter makes it irresistible as a tool.

There are consequences to this; the more we say, publicly, the more accountable we will be held.  If we can't stop ourselves from talking and relationships, even careers can be on the line when we share, what do we do?

This is how The Concious Society begins.
