The demand for Traditional Communications is decreasing because new services and business models have appeared. Fixed and mobile telephony have been substituted by E-mail, chats, forums and videoconference.
On the other hand, other communications and services are increasing: the usage of Internet and broadband, the usage of emerging applications such as social networking and HTML5, and the penetration of laptop comuters, smartphones and portable devices. Day by day podcasts, RSS, mashups, microblogging, voice over IP, repositories, wiki, instant messaging, social networks…are growing up.
Today global&mobile communications have become a reality. Because of that, broadband is becoming increasingly ubiquitous and the Internet of Things is already available. Moreover video traffic dominates the Internet and many users and companies use cloud computing.
A lot of new business models have appeared to offer to users new services and funcionalities. We can read the newsapapers, play online music and videos, chat with our friends from our smartphones, tablets and smartTVs. We can even access on a online operative system to execute software, save files, photos…. With all that maybe the question isn’t “What next?” but “What about privacy?”
