THE FUTURE FEED

Bloomberg News has had a stab at imagining what our social feeds might look like in 2017… if you were to be a bit pessimistic about the news agenda’s trajectory.

They’re not calling it a “prediction” – but considering their 2016 Bloomberg Pessimist’s Guide included a Brexit vote and a Trump US election victory, you never know, we may all have a serious case of déjà vu in a few months’ time. 2017 scenarios include Trumplandia, The Internet of (Bad) Things, and Heads Roll In Europe.

I think we may have to find some happy feeds to follow, like the ever-uplifting We Rate Dogs or reliable old Big Ben to balance everything out. Suggestions welcome.
