Absolute Social Media Trends of 2013

Well, as usual end of each year people and media have started to reveal their thoughts and forecasts about trends of each and every thing you can think about. Today for example Time magazine wrote an article highlighting  bacon as kinda everlasting Trend.

Social Media Outposts

The point is that the trending trends, is such an obsession that drives Time’s author write about  bacon trendy thing.

Any how here is the result of my digging on the social media; here I announce 1st set of hot trends in social media for next year.

Social Media Trends in 2013:

 

Live Video:

– Online video dose fly limitlessly while youtube is the super power of the tubes, we will have more tendency towards the online live streaming from both users and the media. Wait and see how TV industry is transforming itself  to change the loosing market share and audience attention.

Bye to Print media:

– Will see more printed media being forced to change,  as Newsweek just did.

Online Privacy turns to social privacy

– Online Privacy will become more debating and lots of stories about privacy breach will become hot headlines of different media, But after all I am sticking to my idea about online privacy  I see it as “social privacy” after all there is no much privacy  but the share of us in lack of privacy is equal there for I guess gradually people get less sensitive about their privacy. And we are released from oftenly  reading and listening how Facebook is blamed for the divorce cases in Great Britain.

Rise of new currencies:

– Online currencies will see starting a book as the traditional monetary system and bankers are too old to participate in social games and marathons.

Personal Branding is the Biggest Boom

– Biggest trend in 2013 social media is branding and particularly social branding, social media give individual enterprise class tools for PR , so these ideas of social branding which have started from 2009 are mature enough to create the major move of the coming year, among big social networks I guess the luckyest maybe LinkedIn and least prepared is Facebook to entertain Social Branding boom.

 

To Be Continued.
