Parents are packing their students’ belongings and preparing to send them off to college. It is a time of mixed emotions. The excitement of stocking their new dorm room with linens, towels, lamps, hangers, and even a mini-fridge is likely in contrast with knowing that a season in your family’s life is ending. It is certainly a time for reflection and thought. Some of this “thought” should be towards packing up what is now a standard issue item for college students: a notebook (laptop) computer.

The Power of Connectedness

We’ve heard the statistics but they remain staggering:
- Facebook is now the third-most populous community on Earth, with 70% of its users outside of the United States.
- Tumblr is an emerging player in social media, nearly tripling its audience from a year ago.
- Tout enables people to quickly update their Facebook friends and Twitter followers with real-time short video updates captured from smart phones.
- 67% of the world’s population has a mobile phone subscription. Nearly 40 percent of social media users access social media content from their mobile phone.
- For every 10% rise in mobile phone subscriptions in emerging markets, GDP rises 0.8%. A 10% rise in broadband Internet use boosts GDP by 1.3%. (Source: World Bank)
