It is typical of most new technologies that the younger generation is quick to adopt them. Social media started out with such
sites as Facebook, Friendster, Flickr, and LinkedIn, to name a few. At that time, the utility and growing popularity of these
sites had not taken root, since Facebook was restricted only to university students, and professional social networking was
a novelty. These social media sites hit their stride when a critical mass of users drew more users to join, much like a popular
restaurant where diners are willing to wait hours for a table, and then tell their friends that they just have to eat there.
