The world that we live in is always changing. Every day there are new advancements in technology that can have both a positive and a negative effect on the way we reach out and communicate with people. One of the newest and most innovative trends happening in today’s society that would have a monumental impact on social media would be the creation of holograms in social media.
Everyone who has ever seen Star Wars remembers watching it for the first time, and remembers being absolutely amazed and captivated by the idea of being able to display a hologram of yourself somewhere else when you couldn’t actually be there. For the longest time, the concept of holograms has been shown only in science fiction movies, but with today’s technology it is entirely possible to turn this technology into a resource to be used for a variety of different situations - the main one being connecting with people through social media.
Imagine it now: you’re visiting a foreign country as a diplomat trying to bring peace to the two countries that are on the brink of nuclear war. While you’re away, you find out that your child accidentally got his or her foot crushed in a conveyor belt. The doctors need to consult with you to get your permission on whether or not to try to save the foot or just amputate the whole leg. With innovative hologram technology, you could communicate and possibly save your child’s limb during dinner and still be able to meet with those two countries' leaders before dessert.
