Hi, The influence of being connected will show it’s ugly side aswell. Coming year we will see more negative sides of being connected.
As already predicted by me and reinforced by Alan Moore the social and political impact of a networked world will be a big issue.
I already see some clear issues:
Connect Dissease: online addiction. 24 hours a day(especially with mobile)
Pressure on companies and politics to change(sustainability, environment)
The gap between the connected and non connected
The influence of User Generated Content on behaviour among teens.
