What is The Social Age

The Social Age, like the Information Age and the Industrial Age before it, is an historic period characterized by a distinctive feature. The Industrial Age moved society away from agrarian cultures toward manufacturing, particularly large-scale, energy-saving machinery. The Information Age showed us that economies could exist beyond trade in physical product through the increased production, transmission, consumption of and reliance on information. The Social Age might be characterized by the incorporation of social media into everything we do – work, live, play.
