Eccentric Interaction

Social media is popping up in the most bizarre places

Implications - It wasn't long ago that social networking was limited to a user's phone and computer; now, social media is being infused into the most uncommon of places. A user can send tweets from her dress, or use social media interaction to make his or her plants grow. Seemingly useless and eccentric, these social media innovations allude to the pervasiveness and ubiquity of social media's future.
