Social Networking Is Already Using The Cloud [Infographic]

Are you one of those who is really looking forward to the day when cloud computing is as normal as the Internet itself?  If so, you might not have to wait much longer.  There has been a lot of talk about cloud computing for the past year or two, but we’ve not seen much progress on the surface of the Internet that proves to us that we’re really using it.  However, you can be completely sure that pretty much everyone is working on it in one way or another.  There is almost a 100% chance that you are using it right now.  Why?  Well, it so happens that pretty much every social networking site out there has already implemented it in their own ways.

IMOGO put together a rather simple infographic on the topic, and it’s astounding to know that we’re all on the cloud together these days.  Everything you tweet, facebook, linkedin to and pretty much everything else you are doing is connected to the cloud.

So next time you’re wondering if and when you can use the cloud, be rest assured that you are already doing so using the social networking services that you have signed up for.  In a way, it feels great because of the reason that the information is always there.  But there is a slight concern that keeps poking me in the back of my mind.  How much will all my information be used and for what purpose?  It’s definitely something to think about.  Do we want to be farmed for information used by multinational companies around the world?  Well, that’s entirely up to you.  If you don’t want to share it, don’t put it on the Internet.  Simple as that… I guess.
