Social networking 2013 predictions

  1. 1. What The World Shall LookLike 375 Days From Now! AndyNathan.net
  2. 2.  This is the one time of the year you can say anything, and no one can dispute the facts against you. Because the facts are in the future. Which leads me to my idea that predictions should go beyond 2012. Instead, picture what social networking will look like on January 1st, 2013. What will the world look like roughly 375 days from now.
  3. 3.  On January 1st, 2013 I predict that 2/3 of all social networking users in the US will access their mobile devices as to check in on social networking sites, such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. However, since this is such as huge trend right now I also want to add that 25% of those mobile users will be engaging in some form of Augmented Reality.
  4. 4.  Google Plus will have 250 million users. Where did I come up with this line of thinking! Right now they are around 50 million. It is not inconceivable for them to grow at a pace of over 50 million a quarter for the next year. Remember Google+ has the largest online backing in the world with Google search, Gmail, and Youtube among others. Now an even bigger question! Why is this important? To that we go to the bat mobile! Or my third social networking prediction 2013.
  5. 5. Third, Social networking will transform intosocial search. This will be largely in part toGoogle, but also because of the fact that everymajor social media entity has enhanced theirsearch features. The social search line is gone, sobacklinking alone is not enough for search traffic.Instead, you will need 1,000 backlinks and 100likes, pluses, tweets, etc to look viable.
  6. 6.  This will diminish the power of relationship building, but it will also provide a venue for small businesses to compete more competitively with larger ones. A merging a social and search means that content marketing will be even more important. While large companies have the capacity to create volumes of content, most of them generally do not know what to say. Small businesses have the ability to relate to their readers, subscribers, fans, and followers a lot more effectively.
