The Future of YouTube is Topic-Specific Video Channels Curated by Experts Like You

Now that there are several days worth of video content being uploaded to YouTube every minute, there is a growing necessity for there to be a curation system...

Pedro Barbosa's insight:

We all know how Youtube is great, but how it never earned money. Now a new approach is to believe it will depend on crowdsourcing filtering : the power of curation - to make it profitable.

Social media has rapidly become an important part of many peoples’ lives, not just as a way to keep up with friends and family, but also for professional networks, exploring fields of research, shopping, sharing content and fostering online communities.

It has also become a crucial aspect of a businesses’ online presence- now a firm can connect with consumers and tailor their online relationships with customers, other brands, and with employees.
Predicting quite what is going to happen in this ever changing digital landscape isn’t easy, but it’s certainly worth noting some of the rising trends and having a look ahead to 2013.

I love that point Martin! I think people call it social because of the personal element to it as opposed to advertising and things like that, especially because it's so interactive in nature. Do you have a suggestion as to what to change the name to?

And to get a gauge on how likely they are to happen, we asked the special bets department at British betting firm Ladbrokes to give us their odds on each prediction coming true.

Be prepared for the future...

Anthony Burke's curator insight, January 29, 2013 3:12 AM

How many of these will come true,,,ha...ha I remember some of the great predictions in the past that never made it, whilst the unpredicted did. Anyone remember the "atomic" egg that would fit in a box to power all your household power needs? Anyone remember all the free time we were going to have to manage because robots and AI would be doing all the work?

And flying cars for the year 2,000? ;-) Great infographic nevertheless. Thanks for sharing!
