How Are Apps and Social Platforms Changing Language?

In the course of this evolution, we have both been catalysts and witnesses of the gradual decline of the written word, opting for a far more universal language: imagery.

While our Facebook pages and tweets once relied on text alone, steady streams of images now dominate our digital profiles. The most prevalent social platforms we communicate on today are a far cry from the now seemingly primitive Facebook “walls” of our digital past, showing that today, visuals are the most popular form of communication and define how we express and relate to each other.
