Social Media Networks and Monthly Active Users

Simon Hodgkins, Founder, Think Global Forum


Global internet users are now measured at over 4 billion. Everyone is becoming a digital native. Billions of people are either growing up or have grown up in this new digital age. Older generations are embracing technology and social networks continue to play a significant role here.

As social media networks continue to develop and adapt to the rapid speed of technological change with AI, VR, AR, Voice, supercomputing and deep learning. There is a growing social consciousness around data privacy, security, fraud, fake news and wider growing concerns.

It will be interesting to see how social networks continue to develop over the coming year and what changes will happen. There are good and bad elements to most technology improvements and if we predict forward 5 or 10 years it will be a very different social media landscape to the one we see today.

As social networks become much more than simply sharing posts, images and video the future is going to be very interesting.
