Networking, Bluetooth, and Social
We live in a world that is getting more and more connected, in terms of both people and products. Social networking sites abound—Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, and LinkedIn, to name a few. Mobile social apps, such as Instagram, WhatsApp, and WeChat, have seen historic user growth. The wearable technology and Internet of Things, a term used to denote the “advanced connectivity of devices, systems, and services” ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_of_Things ), are regarded as the next wave of technology after phases such as the PC, Internet, and mobile. Devices such as smartphones, tablets, and many Bluetooth-based classic and smart devices can all be connected to help us lead better lives. How Glass can join this connected world, using Bluetooth and other networking technologies, is the topic of this chapter.
