How technology has infiltrated popular culture over the last 10 years

97

A major influence on our lives has been how technology has become a key part of our popular culture over the last decade. Things like online casino play spring to mind, and many of us now think nothing of logging onto sites to enjoy casino games over the internet. If you enjoy this yourself, just make sure to use something like the Borgata online casino bonus code so you have extra free money to play with.

What is clear when you think back over the previous 10 years is that the rapid growth of the online casino sector is just one way in which tech has infiltrated our culture. But what other tech has made itself central to our lives?

Cryptocurrency

If you are thinking about technology that has made a big splash in popular culture within the last decade, cryptocurrency is a major story. These are digital currencies which can be spent like real money, but they only exist online. The benefits with using this type of money include excellent security around transactions and total anonymity. When you think how popular cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin are now regarded compared to 2010, it is clear to see how the whole sector has moved into the mainstream. 

Back in 2010, few people had heard of crypto, few were confident enough to invest in it, and the mainstream media barely covered it. Fast forward to 2020 and this is totally different! Now, we have stories around various coins cropping up in the mainstream media every day and the average person on the street knowing about crypto or actually using it to pay for goods.

Smartphones

Smartphones really took off in the 2010’s and made an indelible mark on popular culture. The first Apple iPhone actually came out in 2007 but it took a few years for everyone to really grasp how important they could be in normal life. As the 2010’s went on though, they became something we all used regularly and made integral to our lives. 

Not only were the iPhone and the Samsung Galaxy quickly to become fashion statements, they also used cool apps to help organize our lives, told us the time, gave us quick ways to take photos, connected us to the internet and even let us send quick SMS messages to friends. Mobile gaming must also be mentioned here as its popularity has grown massively in the last decade and has become something most of us now regularly use our mobile phones for.

Social media growth 

Like some other tech, social media was by no means new as 2010 rolled into town. What is true though, is that over this decade it has gone from being something that some people did to something we all do. Facebook for example grew from around 500 million users in 2010 to around 2.5 billion in 2019. It is a similar story for other platforms like Twitter or those that came into being during the 2010’s, like Instagram. As these platforms have found ways to attract more people to use them and gain more media exposure, they have become a key part of our culture during the last ten years.

Streaming is the new way to relax

Streaming is now such a well-known aspect of our modern culture that it seems almost quaint to think back to a different time; however, coming into the 2010’s, streaming was still something many people felt unsure about or did not use at all. Spotify, for example, was only a fledgling European start-up in 2010 while Netflix was pretty much unknown outside certain U.S. states. Fast forwarding to how massive and widely used these companies are now on a global scale shows how far streaming had come in the 2010’s. Rather than putting on a DVD or buying a CD, streaming became the most popular way to listen to music or to watch movies in the last decade. 

A lot has changed since 2010

Looking at the above list, it is obvious to see how certain pieces of tech and the way we use them has moved into popular culture during the 2010’s. Of course, this is an ongoing process and so it is highly likely that, come the end of the 2020’s, we will be looking at a whole load of new ways that other tech has done the same!

Hey Ladonna,

Social media gives voice to minorities and vulnerable sections.

For example, more and more women are voicing their opinions through social media, who were otherwise not encouraged to speak up due to cultural norms.

Social media is also encouraging violent behavior for many. Thanks for sharing.

hi, well, question is where it will take us? People more and more stay at home. Socializing becomes harder. We can’t stop technology but it comes with new challenge.
