One Social Media Trend

By: Gini Dietrich | December 15, 2011 | 

It’s Facebook question of the week time (clap, clap, clap)!

This week, I have a little contest for you. During the video, I show you the view from my hotel room.

The first person to correctly guess where I am will receive a free copy of No Bullshit Social Media by Jason Falls and Erik Deckers.

And, as an extra bonus, if you not only name the city, but the exact hotel where I’m staying, you’ll win an Arment Dietrich Rabbit wine opener.

No cheating. And my team is not allowed to participate. Or tell anyone where I am.

I repeat. NO. CHEATING.

On to the question at hand.

I got some silly questions this week.

Brankica Underwood asked:

What is your favorite Facebook app? And you can’t say Angry Birds.

First of all, I didn’t know I could play Angry Birds on Facebook. This could be trouble. Secondly, what do you mean I can’t say Angry Birds? I LOVE Angry Birds. Whenever they update new levels, I stop what I’m doing to play. I have a problem.

Steve Bitter asked:

When are you going to bring your bike to Arizona and ride with me?

I need to do that, Steve. My friend Abbie Fink would be really happy if I did. But wouldn’t you rather take your bike to Utah and meet me there?

Roger Smith asked:

After getting their attention with the oh so important profile photo how do we shift the emphasis to other less obvious strengths i.e. personalety, integrety or spelling? thanks!

Roger, that hurts my eyes. They may actually begin bleeding.

Steve McKee asked:

Why don’t more people like me? (I guess that goes beyond Facebook). Sigh.

That made me sad for Steve. There are lots of us who like you, Steve! We really do.

But, as much as I really don’t want to do this because I’ll never hear the end of it, Ryan Cox is the big winner of the video answer today.

He ought to be…he submitted five questions. He had a good chance that one of them would be good.

Drumroll, please. His question is:

If you can hang your hat on only ONE trend for 2012 that you aren’t currently using, but predicts you will be — that trend is what??

The answer is in the video below (or you can view by clicking here).

Now it’s your turn. What trend do you see coming that you’re not currently using, but will be soon?
