With all of the life changes we've all had to endure during 2020, it's no wonder 'social' is one of the important topics of 2021. Social media, social issues, and just plain 'being social' with friends. Although last year was one of the hardest years in history, we here at Roomkey try to look at the positives and see the glass half full. As a result of the pandemic, it feels as though many people have woken up to the importance of family, friends, and even strangers. The human connection is a vital part of our daily energy and mental health.
We've seen social media apps like Twitter take center stage as they helped facilitate a global conversation around social issues. Acting as a place to both love and support one another and also voice frustrations with the pandemic.
We've seen social issues around the world come into the mainstream with a number of companies, organizations, and people stepping up to help fight the good fight. Whether it's improving mental health, prejudice, or poverty, we are collectively fighting against inequality. It's at least comforting to know there is a global movement picking up momentum, following the footsteps of strong leadership from great companies like Thrive Global.
And of course, being social with friends. In a year where Zoom deserves millions of 'thank you' letters for keeping us connected, it's been tough to find those fun moments of serendipity. Usually they occur at events, in public transport, at bars, and amongst dinner tables with friends. With all the change in the world around the different applications of social, we are coming together with Biz Stone, the pioneer of social and the co-founder of Twitter inside of the Roomkey Metaverse for a positive event to discuss how we continue moving forward into this new normal.
