Last year, you probably joined Pinterest and Instagram. Maybe you downloaded Snapchat (and didn't delete it in 10 seconds). If not, you might have just installed Facebook's Poke. What can we expect in 2013?
Capulet Communications, the local web marketing agency of Darren Barefoot and Julie Szabo, has produced this video identifying six digital-communication trends to watch out for this year. It's aimed at fellow marketers but relevant to anyone interested in online communications and social media.
If you don't have the attention span for the two-and-a-half-minute video, these are the trends:
#1: We live in a multi-screen world.
#2: Now more than ever, we talk with images.
#3: Self documentation reaches new frontiers.
#4: We’ll see more push-button curation, particularly on mobile devices.
#5: Our online communications channels will continue to get more and more ephemeral.
#6: Computers know more about you than you think.
