Every year things change, specially on the Internet. Social media has become a quickly growing trend with more and more platforms competing with each other. Social media has ultimately changed the way that people view things, as well as how they communicate. The top trending things in 2012 show that anything from: a celebrity death, a dance gone viral,or the Olympic games will be talked about and searched on social networks. With the rise of smart phones, more people are now accessing the Internet via mobile devices, and spend the majority of their time on social networks or searching. Lastly, the biggest change online was how the presidential candidates approached advertising. A vast majority of their advertising was done online on social networking sites because that is where people were looking for information.
