Technology has progressed at an insane rate in just the past decade. With technological advancements we have had many incredible benefits. Many industries thrived with the new developments. One of the most important impacts that came with this new technology was the ability to communicate. These advancements are incredible for the world. You can connect with more people than ever before.

The ability for individuals to launch their own thoughts onto a platform for others to view and respond is essential for societal growth. With the innovation of technology it is easier than ever. WordPress is one of those platforms that allows individuals to express their voices. Whether it is for business or for fun, people post and they connect with others. 

When I started to look for blogs I let marketing due it’s work, I looked for a name that stood out to me. I came across a blog called Adrenaline for Digital Marketing, the author posts videos of marketing tips and reviews and expands on them. One interesting post I found on there was “The Future of Social Media Marketing in 2020 and Beyond”. The author recaps the video of a keynote speaker who expresses his concerns about how people are not marketing on social media platforms in the correct manner. How the material you put out will get tuned if it looks and sounds like a normal ad. He also deeply urges businesses to continue to grow through social media, it is a great advantage for companies, big and small. This article helped me digest the video better, I appreciate the way he worded certain phrases and will continue to read through his other posts!
