  16. 16. What does lifestreaming mean for you? Today, people have their own brands. You have to find a way to be relevant to them within their brand. Think of it as co-marketing with fans of your brand. Think of the many ways that your brand creates content and find ways to spread the word, outside of Facebook and Twitter. Real-time content. And portable content.

  29. 29. What does augmented reality mean for you? What would you do if you could do what you should do? Throw off the constraints - technology now opens new possibilities. Cool for the sake of being cool is still cool - but useful is cool too if it helps school you.
  30. 30. Trend #7 Social Games
  31. 31. What does social gaming mean for you? In many cases apps within social networks represent one of the best ways to reach new customers. Consider researching whether or not your customers are playing social games. Is there a place for your brand within that game?
