Want to get in to a club, get a drink at the bar get on a domestic flight in the US…you present your ID. Some people pull out their state issued ID, more common yet is your state issued driver licenses and there are those few unfortunate souls who carry around their country issued Passport. In the end you have your tool of choice to display your information to grant you access.
In this day it seems we also maintain a social media ID. Who are you when you log in to Yahoo, Twitter or CNN? You can select from a variety of social platforms to log in to cross communicating websites and even smartphone applications.
So maybe soon we will be able to get on a plane or into a bar with a social media ID? Just a thought…don’t quote me on that one.
