Chris Heuer at the Social Media Club blog posts an interesting perspective on business and social implications of social media. Here are a few important takeaways:
There are four major trends I see from where I sit today:

  1. Social Media will become more of a business, but will retain the power from its personal passion, unlike new media in the big dotcom boom
  2. More individuals will band together in networks small and large, changing the very notion of freelancing and employment
  3. The corporation will be forever changed, traditional media will adapt before dying completely and all companies will become media companies thereby shrinking the advertising pie
  4. Ultimately, Social Media will be a primary catalyst in saving the world…or bringing about our demise
Check out the post. It's long, but certainly a thought-provoker. Makes you consider how social media fits into your life and what you're going to do about it.
