Social Media in Sci Fi

Social Media

Today’s topic comes from QSFer Hank T. Canon:

“Social Media in a science fiction story. Admittedly, I have not read anything featuring social media since Shadowrun’s BBS style information dumps in their old splat books. I have seen it crop up in some science fiction Anime programs namely “Serial Experiments: Lain” and those shows in the “neural interface massive multiplayer online game goes horribly wrong” genre. Do you use Social Media as in your sci fi stories? Is it something just in the background, or does it strongly effect your protagonists? Do they take pains to avoid it?”

I’d broaden this out to also ask the question – what will social media look like in the future? In ten years? Twenty? Fifty?
