Happy (almost) New Year! Since the world didn’t end on December 21st, that means that we’re bidding farewell to 2012 at the same old time. And as a new year approaches, it’s natural for people to look back on all the events that happened over the last 365 days, both in their own lives and in the world. Luckily, since we are in the technology age, we don’t have to think too hard to remember all the things that happened throughout the year – the internet (and particularly social media) has documented it all for us! Thanks to Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and the countless other platforms out there, we can easily look back on our year and reflect on just how much our lives have changed.
Offering another online perspective of 2012, Google made a powerful video summarizing the year’s events through search. Like Facebook Stories, it’s amazing to see how much the internet has shaped the world (and vice versa) in one short year.
What did your online life look like this year and how will it change in 2013?
