COVID-19 is doing more than covering the headlines, it has changed how the majority of us live and work, and will for the foreseeable future. In the world of technology, it is creating a challenge due to the volume of data and urgency for results.

When it comes to social media, it is much like the world of video teleconferencing, in that it is getting more use than ever before. People are looking to social media for news, updates and connections. Social media is filling the gap left behind with social distancing.

The technology running the social media relies on more than human beings, it relies on emerging technologies.
