The End of Mass Media as We Know it - A short story from year 2049

We’re in the year 2049. The world has seen an apocalyptic
breakdown of all media known to man. There is no more human communication outside the global network of Facebook. A protocol of the end of mass media as we know it.


Holo, tell me about how it used to be in the Old World!

What do you want to know?

How did people access Facebook in the old days, when they didn’t have holo lenses?

There was no such thing as Facebook.

NO FACEBOOK? You’re kidding me! And what did people do for entertainment, or if they needed information?

There were newspapers and television.

Television? What’s that?

It's coming. The end of the information pyramid, when small groups controlled all information.

And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future.

This combined with sousveillance will give us access to more information than ever. On a lesser downside, future computing will make producing convincing fake visuals easier than ever which will lead to a few more hoaxes.
