What is Social Media?
Social media are web based platforms that allow users to interact with each other. These digital technologies permit users to create and share information with public. Anyone with access to internet can create a social media profile and share the content they like with others who view their pages or account (Team, 2022).
Impact of Social Media on Technology
Social media and technology have grown together over the last 20 years. Software developers are coding social media into their software programs. Social media is an integral part of business technology development and during its usage.
Social media communication consists of video or audio recording and drives innovation in telecommunication networks for e.g. 5G. It is a big contributor to marketing and advertising industry and changes the way marketing algorithms are developed. Algorithms use artificial intelligence to include interests and demographics mentioned on social media profiles to guide advertisers to target specific audiences. Social media also affected television marketing and promoted advertising by connecting celebrities with followers through technology. Integration of social media with website allows users to access their content in a secure way by logging into one of their social media accounts. Social media allows people to accept donations through crowdfunding from other users. Social media developers also structure I.T. systems around type of information and content they want people to see on social media, specifically for political news.
Thus social media influences communication technology, software development, artificial intelligence, influencer marketing, quick user login, crowdfunding, and information technology (Bhatla, 2020).
