As we all know, Social Media is an ever changing medium. There's lots to keep up with, and part of the role of anyone who works in this realm is to have a sort of sixth sense in predicting the future. You never know what the "next big thing" is going to be for sure, but you can use past experience, current research and an overall hunch to try and predict what's going to be relevant in the future. Therefore, every year it's fun to predict how the social sphere may shape up. Here are our 2014 social media predictions:

  1. Expect to see a spike in native social media ads
  2. More employees will be active on social media for their company
  3. Video oriented media will continue to grow and be relevant
  4. Micro video apps like Vine are poised to break out
  5. Companies will face more pressure to pay to sponsor ads
  6. Expect a rise in using brand advocates to appeal to a user base
  7. More articles and discussion will take place regarding Google Glass as the future of technology, but we're still years off from it being viable and relevant

Of course, there's more to it than just those 7 points, so we also back it up with information for you in handy infographic form. Check out the infographic below and feel free to share with your networks!
