How has this 10 year old changed your life #FacebookTurns10

The #MediaRevolution - Facebook@10, Twitter@6, G+@2 

#HAPPYBIRTHDAYFACEBOOK U R 10!

Challenges to leadership from a toddler's view of the world of tomorrow

Happy Birthday Facebook. In its short ten years, how has Facebook changed your life? Your routine? Your perspectives? Your interactions? Your outlooks?
To answer that, you will recognise the impact of our social networks, new media, virtual technologies on our society; why virtually all development planning for the next decade are already obsolete; and why we seem to be scrambling for answers and solutions to what seem to be unprecedented social convulsions - on the streets, in our homes, schools, communities, and in our institutions.

That is the challenge of leadership, a leadership structure that is significantly all of much beyond the +10 generation.
Institutions, couched for decades in their comfort zones with rocking chair mechanisms fixed to resist change, are feeling the walls crumbling around them: institutions in the public sector, in academia, in the private sector, and even in the media.
As traditional forms of social institutions, power structures and modes of interactions crumble, what kind of world is likely to emerge from its ashes?
What will our world look like a decade ahead? And how can we use our newly empowered weapons to disempower the conventional weapons, and build up rather than break our societies.
That is the challenge of media in our age....
Media is, paradoxically, both the architect and the executioners in this new revolution, as the proverbial pen, is proving its might against the more conventional weapons of mass destruction....
