A Compilation of 2009 Social Media Predictions Worth Reading

It started with a simple email from Peter. An invitation to contribute some thoughts to a collaborative blog post talking about the future. It’s a good topic on this 15th day of the last month of the year, a mere two weeks until we welcome 2009. Which may explain why when Peter Kim from Forrester Research sent his email, 13 other highly popular bloggers and (dare I say) social media "personalities" took him up on his offer and each contributed a some thoughts to a single collaborative post.

Thankfully, you won’t have to wait until 2009 to see all those thoughts – just a few minutes ago, Peter published the full post on his blog and you can download the PDF as well. Now I’m keenly aware that much of the social media world is collaborative back scratching (or "blog scratching" as some bloggers call it – but this is where the beauty of numbers comes in. Me publishing my own post on my thoughts for 2009 would be a much more self indulgent effort … though, of course, that has certainly not stopped me in the past.

But as the list of contributors in Peter’s post should prove, if you can get enough smart people together to talk about the same issue, you’re bound to end up with more useful ideas and thinking. So download the PDF or visit any of the contributing blogger’s sites and introduce yourself to their content and ideas. I’ll bet you find at least one thought that helps you plan for 2009 amongst these contributions.

  1. Everyone seems to be on the social media predictions things today. That’s OK though, I just think the social media will still be useful as long as businesses do not think that everything will happen right away. Social media does take a lot of work but if you are in it for the long haul you should be fine.
