The web is quietly, but quickly, undergoing a social revolution, blending the analogue and digital worlds to become even more powerful in the way we all live, work and play.
Search is at the very heart of this change as the internet evolves to be more about “doing” and less about “finding,” Coplin says. Understanding this change is crucial, not just for the satisfaction and welfare of consumers and customers, but equally for the success and relevance of businesses and brands.
Coplin’s presentation highlighted the challenges (and opportunities) faced by us all as we move to this new way of living and working, and how shifting to a more human approach that enables us to unlock the full potential of all that technology has to offer a modern society.
