Social Media – Circa 1940

The social media is growing old, according to the May issue of Advertising+Marketing (M) magazine. With more and more dads & moms, grandpa and grandma signing on to these networking platforms, life insurance ads seem more appropriate than, say, Victoria Secret. What if social media were in existence during the Boomers era? How would have the world of advertising been then?

Maybe we don’t need to go to school no more. Just teasing.
