Communication has changed drastically in 2030. The quantity of communication has increased. You can have contact with people all over the world, every minute of the day due to the fact that everybody is in the possession of multiple social devices. The network has been improved and faster than ever. However the quality has decreased sharply. Nowadays the internet is one big archive of personal data. Everybody knows everything about everyone. Tweets, photo’s, updates and statements from years ago are there to be found on the internet. social media like Twitter and Facebook have reached their top and in 2030 there are many more social providers.
Twenty years ago we were already dealing with this problems but we have never thought that it would go this far. Our biggest fears from those days have now become reality. Would you have published your holiday pictures, your vision about the government and shared your locations knowing what you know now? Every move is supervised. All activities are tracked and reported. The internet has brought us so many great things but we are now heading to a break down. People cannot deal with the daily situation any longer since it taking for so long already.
Even though social media creates a more connected world on the other hand it causes individualization. The continuous change in media ensures that traditional boundaries are blurring.

Because of the further expansion of economic and political globalization, countries are more connected with each other. Global cultures are more similar and trade barriers have been lowered. The freedom of worldwide trade gave a boost to the economy. However the EEC has struggled the past few years with an economic and financial crisis, it is back on track and third in line of the economic rulers. The rivalry between the USA and BRIC countries is stronger than ever. America is about to be pushed from its throne.
During the climate convention of 2015 it was decided that the Kyoto protocol would be extended until 2020 on a voluntary basis. The BRIC countries and the USA have indicated that they were not willing to participate. Meanwhile, in 2020 a new agreement has been concluded whereby all countries are obliged to participate. Now, in 2030, climate change is still on top of the priority list of the political leaders of the world.
A point of what can be crossed off the list is the human rights issue, tough it is still under supervision. Under pressure of the United Nations, human rights have been more accepted by countries like China, Russia and several African countries. Nowadays the rules are better respected.
In 2015 some major nations have decided to create a separate ministry in the field of social media. It has become such a huge part of people’s lives that we had to take the next step in order to fight cybercrime. Fraud, scams, hacking, cyber bullying, distribution of child porn and abuse of personal data are all examples of cybercrime which are now laid down in the law. The ministry is also there to search the web for statements that should not have been made. People will be punished if they publish their disgust in the government or stir up hatred. Since every move is reported, privacy is nowhere to be found.
Due to the increasing impact of social media, small retailers now belong to the past. However they did everything to keep on track with new developments, they could not meet the requirements of the customer any longer. Why would you, as a consumer, purchase in an actual shop if they offer the same online and it is often cheaper as well? Retailers could not compete any longer. Neither with prices, nor by services. But it is not only the fault of the retailer, bad establishment policies and real estate agents are also to blame.
The US is undoubtedly the greatest country in the world, but it still faces many tribulations. There is a flood of illegal immigrants pouring into the country. The liberal media bias has been distorting the news for years. All the while our Christian morals and values have been vanishing. These are three major problems facing our country today. There are currently 9, 000, 000 illegal aliens living ...
E business has taken the place of the traditional stores. In the last 20 years, sales in densely populated areas are doubled worldwide due to e-business. Traditional sales channels are facing dwindling margins and consumers have become smarter and more articulate. Web stores have information about what the customers want and need. They get this information through the social media were the client, not knowing what is going to happen, shares their daily lives with the rest of the world. Again, all steps are supervised and tracked. People’s lives are like novels on the web. Everyone has access to it.
With the advent of e-commerce, companies have become more transparent which is in the advantage of the public. It allows complete traceability to consumers however they have become completely numb due to the fact that there are so many providers. The consumers have no clue what is happening with the information which they put online. Not everyone can keep up with the speed of internet and people burn out.
In 2030 the social media developed a way to earn more money. They introduced their own currency. Digi credits. This means for Facebook only, that it will scoop in 30% of digital returns. But because it is accepted everywhere on the web, to improve and ease the financial settlement, it bring in even more.
The classic fashion shows are now old-fashioned. In 2030 3D fashion shows are it. These days fashion addicts can attend each show of every fashion week all over the world while lying in their bed at home watching their 3D television. After the show they can try on the clothes on a 3D hologram of their selves so that they can see the latest fashion on their own bodies. Going to stores, trying on clothes in fitting rooms is no longer needed. Technology has taken care of this. This has led to a new fashion trend: pre-selling. In this way you can buy the catwalk outfits right after the show, after you have tried them on. Pre-selling is very attractive for tradespeople and designers because of the fact that they are secured of an income. They will receive their money earlier than selling on the traditional way.
The sensitive period for social relations occurs from 2 ½ to 5. Children watch us to see how we behave as well as how we move and how we treat others. In this stage children become conscious of how others make them feel. Give your child ample opportunities to play and be around other children outside of school times. Following close to the social phase is the sensitive period for grace and ...
Social media plays a huge part in fashion nowadays. QR codes are processed in care labels, folders, tags and carrying bags of the web shops just to get more attention for the brand. These are linked to their social media site. Their goal is to get a huge amount of likers and followers. In this ways brands compete with each other. The one with the least amount of likers has to close their web shop. So not only the small retailer but also the small e-tailers do not get a chance anymore. The web is ruled by big providers.
Fashion and technology
Technology plays a role in design, materials and life in general in 2030. Small track and trace chips, the ones we used to know from cars, are now processed in clothing with the use of nanotechnology. Nanotechnology is a hot issue these days. In 2015, products incorporating nanotech contributed $1 trillion to the global economy. About two million workers were employed in nanotech industries, and three times that many had supporting jobs. In 2030, this is doubled. The development of nanotechnology has caused a change in telecommunication by linking people directly to electronics. Also computers and robots are reduced to extraordinarily small sizes. Though we still need to do more research, in order to operate on its best, meanwhile it helped us to control pollution more and it was and still is beneficial for the industrial sector¹.
By 2030 it is more important than ever to look good and to follow the latest trends since people have become so individual. Everything is changing so fast and people are trying to keep up. They do not want to show that they are actually tired of social media. Clothes are now designed in order to make the use of social media easier and looking your best at the same time. Think of clothes that provide us Wi-Fi access and shoes with a charger in it. Internet controls every aspect of life. These new fabrics cost a lot of money which people will spend due to the fact they want to keep their social status.
In 2030, the materials we use for the manufacturing of clothing have the following properties:
* Fabrics adapt to the temperature. They cool in the summer and make sure we keep warm in the winter.
Imagine a world where everything you believe is true, is actually a TV Show. Now you’re in the world of Truman Burbank, an ‘average’ person whose entire life is broadcasted to the world. Christof the director of the Truman show states that “We accept the reality of the world in which we are presented. ” This is a key issue in “The Truman Show” but does it apply to our real lives? Do we question ...
* Color change under the influence of body heat
* By the improvement of nanotechnology, we can now gain solar energy through our clothing. In this way Wi-Fi is made possible.
The consumers of 2030 have had to make lifestyle sacrifices, which resulted in individualization of society. Everyone is used to the fast changes but not everyone can keep up with them. People are afraid to show this to the outside world because nobody wants to be rejected.
Brands are using the weak spot of people by using different marketing tools to get the attention. Not only fashion brands use this technique but companies in general in order to sell their products. They promise the consumer a better, healthier and happier life if they buy the companies’ products however they cannot fulfil their promises. Yet people continue to purchasing to meet the requirements of the trends which come and go.
Quality of life has decreased over the last years. Face to face communication is almost deserted. There are still social places to go to however they are not as social as they were 20 years ago. The new technology has taken control over our social lives. Magazines do not exist anymore, we read e-books or we have an app for each magazine. People in 2030 don’t even know what cd’s are because they have never heard of it.
Even though the world is more connected, social media also brought a lot of problems to our society. Individualization ensures that people become depressed. The suicide rate has not been so high for years and the people you have in your social circle are falling away one by one. Our new lifestyles are costing us a lot of money and we have the idea that we are out there on our own. We are not happy at all. It all has gone way out of control.
How come we have over hundreds of friends on our social accounts, but we feel lonelier than ever? We can have contact with people all over the world at any moment of the day, how come we do not feel satisfied?
We saw the symptoms many years ago but we have never thought that it would have gone out of control like the situation in 2030. We all embraced the new social media. Children are not sleeping with teddy bears any longer, they sleep with their iPods. Nowadays we get our satisfaction out of reading about somebody else’s life and watching their photos on Facebook instead of playing monopoly. Actually, we still play, online of course.
From a sociological perspective, it is both an oversimplification and an inaccuracy to conclude that people around the world, or even within the same country, are fundamentally the same. There are similarities. The scientific methodologies used by sociologists to study different types of human interactions and social facts instead suggest that people are different in important ways and that these ...
How many of my 650 followers are my friend? Do we still have friends? Years ago, we only saw the advantages of Internet and social media and we ignored the disadvantages. Today we are tired of keeping up with the fast lifestyle which comes with it. Although it has brought us good things, world’s globalization for example, we now realize that our lives of 20 years ago were not that bad at all. We had the option to shop online but we could also go to the city with our friends. In 2030 there is only one option.
For the fashion industry social media might have brought good things. It is making a huge amount of money. But is it really that good? Think about the small retailers who are banned out of the industry. Only the big providers are playing a role in our lives. There is no healthy competition any longer and styles are beginning to look the same all over the world due to the fact that everybody wants to keep up with the trends, which are changing fast. A person, who does not follow, will be bullied. It all enhances the effect of individualization and it has nasty side effects.
Social relationships are affected by the internet at all levels. There is no distinction anymore between the physical and digital world. It is not the new infrastructure of society, but is has taken new proportions. In order to fight individualization we have had to take steps many years ago. If this is the future for 2030, imagine what it would look like in 2050.
