Increasingly we aren’t just sharing information; the growing trend is that we are starting to share our assets as well. Since the development of more and more platforms that allow us to share specific things, sharing our assets has gone virtual – and viral. So what’s next for the future of social sharing and collaboration? Let’s step into the future for a moment and see what sharing might look like in the near future.

I believe that in the future the core of every new initiative is going to be social. It’s in the DNA of everything we will do. Billions of new people will be connected to the internet and the number of people coming online is still increasing every day. The web is going to become the nervous system of the human race. If humanity were a car (and we are certainly an engine that drives things forward) then over time, as we add people to the web, it’s like adding extra cylinders to the engine of your car. With every extra cylinder, the car has more power and torque and it can go faster and faster. For the first time since the dawn of humanity, the engine of our society has the potential to run on full power. When the entire world population is connected then all the cylinders are going to be firing at the same time.
I’m incredibly optimistic that our increased social accountability and our desire to connect with each other on a local level will see the greatest increase in our happiness over the next few decades. It certainly has the potential for that, once we get used to the fact we can’t slow down the pace of change. I refer to the new era that’s on the way as ‘The WE society’ or the ‘WEconomy’ (as opposed to the ME society), and I believe it’s one of the biggest goals we can achieve as humanity. The WEconomy is a social and coherent society of highly connected people that work together as one organism. In the future, if we manage it well, I believe we have the potential to act as if we were one highly intelligent organism that treats itself (and the earth we live on) with the care and respect it deserves. Humanity has a bright future, and you are part of it. We are all part of it; starting today.
