Based on the example by @jaybaer, who wordled @juntajoe‘s great roundup of predictions for social media content marketing, I gathered the text of a dozen other posts from many sources about what’s coming in the next year more generally for social media, then used Wordle to make the resulting word cloud. For this exercise I removed common words, including social, media, internet, and web.
Twitter beats Facebook. Like beats make. People beats content. People beats technology. Networks beat companies and organizations. Marketing beats enterprise.
My opinion? I think 2010 will be about mobile, location, and communities. And there will be some spectacular major brand name social media bungles. Authenticity will be important, too, but I’m saving that for 2011.
