Social (Media) Commentary

“Vintage” social media reviews the past, present and future

Implications - Whether social media is an invasion of privacy or an important shift in communication is a debate highlighted in art and advertising that have given social media a retro revival. These works serve as a commentary on consumer attitudes toward social media—they are nostalgic for days gone by, but thrilled with new developments. Despite social media being accepted as an integral part of communication today, simpler times will never be forgotten.
