It’s pretty much a given that art was going to change and keep changing when it merged with computers. Part of that change includes the way electronic art is viewed and distributed, especially when it comes to social networking.
Almost everyone you meet has some form of social networking account. For a lot of those people, more than half of their social networking is done through shared pictures. These pictures are mostly captioned pieces or simply text on a colored background. Both are examples of textual artwork. They might not be as fancy or take as much time to complete as works by the great masters, but they are art just the same.
These and other works of electronic art are often pulled from a single source and tweeted, tumbled, and shared across all types of social media. Largely, distribution of electronic art is as easy as clicking a single button. There are very few places on the web left where there aren’t icons that make sharing across social networks just that easy.
