96 Social Media-Inspired Innovations

From Hashtag Infographics to Viral Graphic Tees

— January 27, 2014 — Social Media
The Internet plays a big role in today's society and if you don't think so, I'm sure these social media-inspired innovations will change your tune.

Whether it be popular social networks like Twitter or Google+ or the incorporation of memes into our everyday lives, social media lives all around us and not just on the Internet. These social media-inspired innovations prove that the Internet is so much bigger than it seems and has something to do with every single one of us and our daily lives. Galactic social media accounts or social media sweaters wouldn’t be a thing without the influence of what’s going on within the endless walls of the Interwebs.

We may fuel social media but it definitely rules our everyday lives.
