When did we lose track of how much data is being grown and delivered?
I would say never.Data to me is like the change you save in the jar at home.This jar has all the coins from emptying your pockets everyday.You never count it , you just dump it and save it for when you need it.Social Media data is almost the same thing.It just grows every day and only a few people care about it.Well now , its time to empty the jar. Now what are we going to do with it? Who empties the jar ? Who counts the change ? Who spends the money? You can ask the same question using Big Data.The Who,Why and How it is being used and explored every day.
Image, if you owned all the data in the world.It would be like owning all the currencies from all the countries in your pocket.This is why Big Data is the real deal and Social Media will be one of the driving force.
