    Social media is the new normal. What fascinates me is the newness which one can see in this space on a regular basis. New paradigms emerge and the reach. The next boom which I see I this space is the mobile revolution and for this the govt needs to release a lot more spectrum. The combination of social media and mobile will be a powerful potion.
