The Current and Future of Everyday Life With Social Media

From page 5 of The New Media Driver's License Resource Guide there is an article linked on the top 3 ways social media has changed our lives.  Brett Greene gives examples of the integration of old media and new media by saying "You’ll both watch TV and use the internet, but you’ll watch less TV and will be Twittering on your TV screen while you load a YouTube video."  This is a perfect example of the what is currently possible but may not be as readily available as it soon will be.  As things like "smart TV's" become more readily available using Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, etc. on the television while possibly watching a program on another picture on the same television will be seen more frequently in households.  This will give advertisers a way to directly connect people to the shows they may be watching and the brands featured in them.
