A thought on LinkedIn in 2025
Most people seem to have a favorite social media platform or two. LinkedIn is well liked because there is always a conversation going on. By and large, the place is about people helping people get stuff done.
Numerous studied and learned minds concur that 10 years from now, in 2025, everyone will be hyper-connected with global connectivity at speeds of 1 Megabit per second or more.
What does that mean? A question without a short answer.
A thought on how it might feel:
Any two or more willing and consenting people, anywhere on the globe, will be able to look each other in the eye and have a conversation, share a story and collaborate at will and on demand.
Anywhere, anytime, in private or in public. The connection, depending upon plan of course, can come complete virtual drawing and imaging tools, holographic imaging tools, advanced big / little data tools and tools not yet imagined.
Sort of Minority Report only way better because everyone has one. Everyone. Now that is powerful indeed.
Humanity should be able to achieve, fix and pretty much do anything it decides to with that kind of collaborate power.
Looking back at LinkedIn today with that perspective…..
……starts to look a bit antiquated technologically but the identity of being a place to go to get stuff done and have fun doing it seems sound enough.
By 2025, the number of people wanting to get together with others to make neat innovative things happen ought to be a growing majority. Fertile grounds for great achievement.
Will LinkedIn be one of the important cool places to hang out, a place for doers and achievers?
With its identity remaining strong, the odds would probably be pretty good if there is a plan happening to iterate and evolve its communication enabling technology at an exponential pace. New innovators certainly will be.
Anyhow, just a thought from and seasoned old roughneck.
