Zoom has taken over both work and play in the age of COVID-19. Why Zoom?
Mark Wilson of Fast Company –
The other night, I had two teleconferences scheduled at the same time. In the work world, this is an entirely normal event. But this wasn’t two business meetings I was juggling; it was the two sides of my family—both of whom wanted to connect on Zoom.
In that moment, I realized that Zoom is the social medium of COVID-19. Zoom hasn’t just conquered enterprise competitors like Webex, Bluejeans, GoToMeeting, Skype, and Adobe Connect. It has also worked its way into the social lives of people stuck at home during COVID-19. These days, people are Zooming happy hours, board game nights, and theater performances. Zoom is even replacing bars.
