Create with Adobe’s connected apps

The world has changed: A communication revolution is on.

The twenty-first century is the era of mobile devices and social media. There were 1.64 billion smartphone users in 2014 (the number is growing at an amazing speed and is expected to cross 2.16 billion by 2016)[i]. These users are connected. Each day, we share over 1.8 billion photographs on social media; a significant percentage of these uploads goes to Facebook, What’s App, and Instagram[ii]. Over 300 hours of video are uploaded every minute to YouTube[iii]. The world is connected and talking through photos and videos, like never before.
