Social media is allowing people to communicate in revolutionary ways. Its never been easier to keep up with old acquaintances or connect with complete strangers.
Never been easier isn’t always a positive thing. Genuine connection becomes diluted as people frantically scramble to gain attention – releasing a fire hose of worthless self-promotion.
But then there are exceptions that cloud the issue. Billboard.com reports that Marcus Marr, a South London DJ, and Chet Faker, Australian neo-soul singer, met via Twitter messenger. There was a re-tweet, messages exchanged, voice memos swapped, and then eventually an EP with progressive, cranium-expanding music.
Follow Faker and Marcus Marr closely.
