Why Social Networks Are Making Us More Creative [PSFK 2013]
Google researcher Abigail Posner discusses how the visual web reflects our creative minds.
Speaking at PSFK CONFERENCE 2013, Abigail Posner, Head Of Strategic Planning for Agency Development at Google, discussed how rather than serving as a mere distraction, the vast visual web is making us happier, more creative, more connected and ultimately more fulfilled. In the last year, we collectively took 380 billion photographs, every day there are 400 billion views on Youtube, and on Facebook alone, users watch 500 years worth of video per day. What Posner questions is whether this content amounts to merely a two minute distraction, or if it reveals a deeper meaning.
