Me Social | A New Revolution!
While I am getting ready for the Lift Summit here in Atlanta, I wanted to write a little piece about a new word that is gaining popularity and that is “Me Social”. The concept is not new and we have been pushed into it whether we wanted it or not.
Me Social is based on a mobile platform as other devices like Android, iPhone, Windows 7 Phones and to a certain extent RIM. The Me Social is a connection and complete integration of all services within a phone with Social Apps, you see them all the time now, Facebook, Twitter, WordPress, LinkedIn, Google, etc. All of these have current applications completely embedded with a mobile platform OS.
What we used to call SmartPhones have become a GeniusPhone with capabilities that sometimes exceed those of a computer and are sometimes faster on execution and information fetching.
With open graph implementation and smart coding like Ruby on Rails and other scalable efficient ways to create applications, it is becoming more of a reality that a true semantic web might be forming beneath all this app mesh.
I can’t stop thinking about a core migration that Apple, Inc started with the IOS launch, since now we do not see a mobile device just as another piece of equipment that merely relies on software, we can actually see the efficiency of a true mobile platform being born in front of us and the best thing about it is that we get to mold it to our needs.
What you call your phone, I call “Me Social” and it because all the social tools are embedded on my device so I can reach hundreds or even millions from a single app source.
Look at your device in your hand, and think back at the time that only calls could only be achieved and see how far we’ve come to the point that we cannot only make calls but we can pay our bills, move money around, email, take pictures, film HD video, share news, get news, change the world and sometimes even turn our car ignition from it. The power of the mobile device as a platform is unlimited and we are at the cusp of this great movement called the mobile transformation.
Thousands of applications on every mobile OS release are submitted for approval and release every day, websites like Elance and eHire are packed with project proposals to try and make it big in a mobile world. As when the release of RSS was meant to change the way we access websites on a daily basis so is the mobile world innovating new ways for us the consumers to execute and reach more new business and expand the power of communication harnessing the speed and flexibility of the web.
Me Social is all about inter connectivity and execution, and you are in the center of this revolution. Are you powering your life with your fingertips?
