9 predictions for 2010

  1. Consumers will still buy Yarises (Yari?), bank with Westpac and listen to Kyle and Jackie O
  2. For at least 5 things that I think are true about social media this year, I will have the exact opposite view next year
  3. The big social media campaign award winners will be slashies (combined agency efforts)
  4. I will miss my bus stop playing Words with Friends on the way to work (potentially more than once)
  5. Geo-social and augmented reality components of campaigns will be unnecessary add-ons more often than not
  6. Facebook will change its UI no less than 248 times
  7. 18m + Facebook users will join various groups complaining about each change
  8. Keyboard Cats will be usurped by an ambitious troupe of fame hungry pandas
  9. Stephen Conroy will actually access the internet for the first time ever, realise its awesomeness and finally ditch the filter

Merry Christmas everyone!
