Technological diversification the 21st century has brought around tremendous changes in the sector of social communication. In the modern trends, the world wide web or internet has developed a platform that seeks to support and administer the role of communication, sharing information in different formats and learning through various forms. As a result, technology has increased and offered a better and simpler way of sharing, connecting, communicating through video calls, taking and posting pictures among many other essentials associate with information dispersion especially during the learning process.
Social technology therefore; entails a lot of activities that try to connect and share the ideas and tools of web based platforms. These many tools are important in creating communication and information sharing centers such as blogs, twits and Facebook pages. There is the distinction between learning and having an experience in collaborating with different tools. As for me, it is important and essential to point out that the many tools of social technology have introduced another positive was of social networking. The many tools that have been used and developed such as Twitter, Blogs, Facebook, Wikis, have inbuilt connectivity mechanisms that interlinks betweens these sites and tools. This is the common benefit we have gained from sharing information, updating pages, linking and tagging other aspects of the page. As part of the supporting web 2.0 features, the community and society has developed another aspect of accessibility and connectivity. These tools improve who sees shares and tags information from one site to another. Therefore, as much as they increase connectivity, flexibility, sharing and linking, they maintain security of personal and public information. Thus, social technology is diverse and has many more potentials that we are fully to discover in the modern technological platform applications.
