There is no sure way to keep up with new technology, because innovation covers all industries. First, you need to decide the kind of technology you want to keep up with. Be as specific as possible: do you want to keep up with smartphone technology or video game innovations? After choosing a niche, join an online forum that talks about what you’re interested in. Forums have people from different cultures and countries that love tech as much as you do. The participants share all the latest gossip and information about new tech. That way, you can always know about new inventions from around the world.

The other way to keep up with technology is to follow influencers and companies you’re interested in on social media. Companies often give fans a sneak peek of what’s about to come on their social media accounts. However, influencers are much more reliable, because most of them will talk about all the latest inventions from different companies in one post. That way, you get a lot of information from a single post.

You can also subscribe to technology newsletters from blogs that write about what you’re interested in. Go for high ranking blogs, because tech companies tend to favor such sites.
