Predicting the future is impossible, and looking back at the past can shock and inspire. The Super Computer was invented in the 1940s, followed by the Desktop computer, the Internet and Social networks…nobody could have predicted the explosion of Social Media.

Whether you love it or hate it, Social Media is one of the most advanced technological marvels of our time. A platform for free speech, to learn, meet, communicate, comment and share ideas.

In today’s world, a good internet connection is as vital as the air we breathe, just look at the staggering stats below!!!

The Stats 🙈
3.5 billion – The number of people using social media.
3 hours – Time spent by your average person each day on social media or messaging
500 million – The number of people using Instagram Stories each day.
