In the future there will be two types of people.
Either you will create content to share with the world, or you will not.
Many of us have already made the choice to share content with the world at large. We will be joined by many more.
The advantages of having a visible presence in a world awash with information will create a substantial economic and social difference between content creators and the rest.
Yet some people will not to want to share. Some won’t want to share anything about themselves beyond family and close friends. Others will be concerned about the privacy implications. They will not share of themselves to the world.
However if you choose to be a content-creator, it’s a slippery slope. Once you are sharing your voice online, be it through blogging, Twitter, social networks, videos, or other channels, the demands are intense just to keep it going. It’s fun, it’s rewarding, but it’s a commitment.
When your reputation and personal potential are driven by sharing, you do more. So as I just wrote, there can be spiralling demands from content creation.
If you choose to create content, content creation will be your life.
