Emma Stutzman's insight:

This picture shows how social media has developed over the years. It mentions how many people thought that social media was started with facebook, when in reality it was really started by other projects that you can see above. This picture/concept shows the differences between which sites took off and which didn't, depending on our cultural preferences.

Everyday leadership also means being aware of the technology that enhances how we influence people.  According to this infographic, social media has been around since 1969.  I would posit that social media has been around since the printing press was invented.  Although early media was not interactive, it accelerated communications and person-to-person interaction.  We're social beings and if we expand our thinking, even cave art was social media.  As Solomon said, there's nothing new under the sun.  We have innovations and inventions, but the foundational activity is communication that moves us from caves to condos and beyond.

Cultural Syncretism | GEOGRAPHY EDUCATION

Cultural Syncretism | GEOGRAPHY EDUCATION | AP Human Geography | Scoop.it
This is referred to as cultural syncretism, where two or more cultures or cultural traits combine together to make something new. Globalization and migration are making more cultural combinations than we've ever seen before ...

Via Sally Kate Hixson
Emma Stutzman's insight:

Cultural syncretism is when two or more cultures combine to make something totally new. This sign from a bus in Memphis, TN shows how the Hebrew language combined with a folksy southern twang. This shows that migration has affected our culture, and we have affected other cultures.

This picture is showing two cultures combing into one. This is called cultural syncretism. This picture was taking in Memphis, TN on a Jewish synagogue.  This is within a local community and could be a short or long term event.

I did apply against my better geographical judgment, considering I was worried I would die in a snow storm when the institution boasted 300 inches of snow a year in its brochures.
Emma Stutzman's insight:

This article talks about the map of the "11 different nations" that make up America. It says that when people moved here from different countries with different cultures, it created several different "nations" within America. The map separates regions based on their different cultures.
