The surfer represents the development of the internet, technology and social media and the wave behind is the follow of mass produced content that has come with it.
Everyone is a content producer/editor/photographer slash slash slash! We are all masters of content producing now, whether it’s photography, blog writing, journal articles etc. Want to become good at photography, watch some YouTube videos, and want to be able to get your photos out there? Create yourself a Facebook page, a blog, an Instagram, the list goes on.
The benefit of all this content is that most of the time you are going to find the content you want when you go searching but the negative is that you may have to go through a whole lot of unnecessary content to get to it. More positives include that there is a lot more niche content available now, this content is connecting people all over the world and the ease of being able to share our content takes some of the power away from the bigger content providers like the news and magazines etc. And to me this is the biggest and best thing to have happened because we have more choice and more voices to listen to.
LET THE CONTENT KEEP COMING!
