Our annual look ahead. Its #smchat on #socialmedia 2019. WEDS 1/9 1pET

Posted on January 8, 2019 by


What’s ahead for social media in 2019, and beyond? Let’s discuss.

The New Year is a great time to dust off those crystal balls. For nearly 10 years now, the #smchat community has done an annual #socialmedia review. As social networks and web powered software platforms mature, what can we expect to see?  Let’s ask your moderators.

Here are some of the major trends we’ll explore:

  • Q1. Automation and AI. What’s next for intelligent agents, often known as bots?
  • Q2. Fake News. Is it on the rise, or is relief in sight? How can social networks influence context and relevance?
  • Q3. Content Marketing. Video is making inroads. What does that mean for marketers?
  • Q4. Channels. Do the majors like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter evolve, and if so, in what direction?
  • Q5. Mobile. Now ubiquitous, mobile apps change how we locate services; will services begin locating us?

We hope you’ll join the conversation.  It’s WEDS Jan 9, starting at 1pmEST, 6pmGMT.

It’s always lively. We hope you’ll join us!
