Facebook: The Invisible Power Holder
The thing that is really interesting about Facebook is that it has literally replaced newspapers, or, for that matter, paper! Every topic under the sun is condensed into a single monolith. What is truly radical is that the viewer is displaying no qualms about user interface. As it turns out, the human mind can adapt very easily and the human brain is built to digest information laterally. The technique that newspapers employ, namely, spoon feeding, is obsolete and not really moving with the times. Despite the fact that we can create single terms for what social media stands for; Facebook stands for relations, Snapchat stands for private sharing of photographs, Twitter stands for sharing articles or status messages; the boundaries are liquid based and highly elastic.
Facebook has a lot to offer. The move to sell the website also speaks about the solidarity of teamwork, and building relations. Even though it seems like the content that is published on the website stands for the information that is to be read, it is actually what is not published that speaks volumes. Not only Facebook, but most capitalistic ventures offer a deep insight into the birth of the invisible power holder today in the twenty first century. The undermining of the bunker and recognition of human transience provides the viewer with food for thought.
I attempt to conduct research on and describe the relations that most success stories hold. I will be drawing from authors that have looked into these issues and I will attempt to describe the limitations of money and how capitalism can be freed or liberated from the shackles of money by relying on the human entity that offers more potential than monetary constraints.
