The Future of Social Media: 38 Experts Share Their Predictions For 2012

The Future of Social Media: 38 Experts Share Their Predictions For 2012 | The Information Professional | Scoop.it

Brian Rice wrote this piece for Business 2 Community

 

 

"What is in store for 2012? With only two months remaining until the end of the year, there is no better time than now to pause and take a look towards the future."

 

 

 

Here are a few things that caught my attention:

 

Elias Roman, CEO and co-founder of Songza

 

First, the easy prediction: more and more of the information we consume on a daily basis (from news to product reviews to entertainment) will come via the social media channels we have opted into and, more specifically, from the information filters we have chosen to subscribe to in those channels.

 

****In the short term, more information will come from more sources delivered through fewer channels.

 

Tony Ellison CEO from Shoplet.com

 

****Social media can insert the missing human touch and allow mankind to tap into the full potential of the internet. Because of this, it is going to transform eCommerce as we know it.

 

Loren McDonald, VP of Industry Relations at Silverpop

 

The convergence of mobile, social, local and email, or “mocial,” is forcing marketers to change the way they interact with customers and prospects to ensure that they are where their customers and prospects are, all the time. In 2012 and beyond, savvy marketers will need to cross promote between all channels.

Tuesday chat #kmers The Role of Diversity in Knowledge Management » just://in.site

Tuesday chat #kmers The Role of Diversity in Knowledge Management » just://in.site | The Information Professional | Scoop.it

On Tuesday October 18th at 9am Pacific time I’ll be facilitating a Twitter chat with the hashtag #KMers. Anyone can join in by searching for the hashtag or via TweetChat I’ll be Tweeting as @thotstr. Below is some background info on diversity.

The question will be:

How do we incorporate diversity into Knowledge Management practices? Functionally, what tools can we use and philosophically, what do we need to believe and think in order to include diverse knowledge?

THOUGHTstream’s online process (and this question) was inspired by theories presented in James Surowiecki’s book The Wisdom of Crowds(2004). In it he talks about crowdsourcing and collective intelligence, terms that are becoming more common. Crowdsourcing is what you do to get the wisdom of crowds or collective intelligence of a group. So crowdsourcing is the action and collective intelligence is the outcome or product.Surowiecki uses real life examples to present a case for using collective intelligence (CI), under certain conditions. It is these critical conditions that need to be addressed in Knowledge Management processes.

How do we optimize the affordances of CI while limiting the factors that inhibit positive CI outcomes?
