Social Media Predictions for 2010

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.

Social Media 2010 Predictions word cloud

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.

    With regards to the tech in these lists …. people think the technology is further along than it actually is because they believe marketing material and what they hear at conferences. Search engines have been promising, and wanting to understand the true intent behind searches and even predict what you’re going to search for next, since 2000. There are too many databases across too many companies (or business units within companies … even at Google) to make any of this actually happen anytime soon.
