The term The Networked Society is use by the global telecom equipment and service provider Ericsson. The term is used to depict their vision of the future use of communication technologies and it’s fundamental impact on our lives. The core of and basis for this prediction is a society where everything that can benefit from a connection will have one. We have all for many years seen futuristic and rather tech centric illustrations of a society fully utilizing the potential of IT like the Networked Society Film by Ericsson, but also by many other IT and telecom companies. But these illustrations of the future do seem far less futuristic today, given the high penetration of smart devices and the general acceptance of IT in all parts of the society and age groups. The impact of telecom has for instance been essential to the development of Africa and in democratization movements around the globe.
