Offline Status Updates

Social media addicts no longer need gadgets to update their networks

Implications - It’s one thing to update your status on your phone or computer—it’s quite another to print, or even wear, your status update. A person’s status update is now no longer confined to the online world as brands create items that make statuses as tangible as, for instance, a bracelet. In addition to showing the pervasion of social media in our daily lives, these offline status-updating products also appeal to the consumer need for personalization and self-expression.
