The media has exploded over the recent proposed changes in social media. With Facebook introducing their new 'reactions' to replace the simple 'like' and Twitter's character limit increasing to 10,000, there has been much controversy. Will the tech-savvy members of society be able to adapt to the idea of a choice of emotions and longer updates?

People like social media because it allows them quick bites of information or a fast way to acknowledge their friend's promotion at work - these new changes seem to contradict the integral elements of the platforms entirely.

Of course, if the alterations are made permanent, people will adjust, but this doesn't mean they will like it, especially in the world of 140 characters that we currently live in.
