Filed in Sharisax Is Out There 9 comments

Just in case you are preparing your New Year’s Resolutions, you might want to check out predictions and suggestions for 2011 in these Eleven blog posts:


Predictions for small business: paring down to the essential social media platforms based on proven successes and strong metrics; corporate blogging; more cloud computing


Ok, we’ll do 45 better living tips as well, beginning with: Drink More Water. That certainly works for me! Oh, yes, and while you’re at it, Purge Negativity.


Countless organizations advertise to hire a “social media expert,” generally one entry level person to handle all of the company’s social media outreach. That’s an approach doomed from the start.


One of the biggest trends for 2011 will be the evolution of location-based apps.


Marketing lessons from top 10 retweets: “Each of the top tweets, in their own unique way, captured a universal feeling, moment, idea, or bit of wisdom for many.”


We WILL see a Verizon iPhone and iPads ARE mobile, despite what Mark Zuckerburg thinks.


Zeitgist 2010: Here’s Google’s report on most searched for topics: The devastating earthquakes in China, Chile and Haiti as well as the floods in Pakistan and the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico led to a huge spike in all things charitable.


Brand advertising starts to move online, boosting premium display, video and social media: The key driver of this renewed confidence from brand advertisers is better measurement of brand metrics that can show the impact of online advertising beyond clickthrough.


Among the dumbest business decisions of the year: Steve Jobs telling iPhone4 users they were holding the phone wrong.


Social commerce will become relevant at a local level when online meets offline, creating virtual town squares where communities of local folk congregate.


Facebook says GOODBYE to Open Networking.

What’s your Best Guess for 2011? What do you INTEND to make happen?

Here are SIX predictions for Social Media Networks:
1) Google as a company is built for speed and efficiency, neither of which are critical to the success of a social network. That’s why we predict another horrendous year for the search giant in the social realm.
2) Eventually MySpace will bottom out; we just don’t know when.
3) Bebo gets a new owner . . . again.
4) Facebook doesn’t believe it’s ready for an IPO: Facebook would benefit from another year of growth absent the added scrutiny that comes with a public listing.
5) In 2011, Twitter is going to be one of the most boring social media services around. And I know the Twitter team is just fine with that.
6) 2011 will be the year mobile photo sharing becomes all the rage. These services will hit critical mass as smartphone users install apps in order to keep up with their friends. I also predict that Facebook will join the fray and implement new mobile photo-sharing features integrated with its Places platform, bringing the whole trend to another level.

4 Predictions for the future of politics and social media:

For one: In the U.S., we’re already seeing web use catch up with television in terms of weekly hours spent. Political money will simply go where the eyeballs are, and we’re likely to see a big payoff on social creativity when it comes to future campaigns.

#8 Jenny :

Thanks for these insightful tips and predictions!!! After creating and building my business last year, this year my goal is to really extend my reach and CONNECT with people online and gain their trust. I’ve found that the more practice I have with social media, the more effect my efforts become.

Thank you again! I’m glad I stopped by…and I’ll definitely be back!
