What's Hot & What's Not

Q: What's hot right now in social media?

A: Social media continues to evolve, and what's hot one day could soon become yesterday's news. Currently, social TV, social sharing, Google+, and the Facebook IPO are among the hot areas of interest in social media.

Q: What's cooled off?

A: One thing I've noticed -- and I think this is a good thing -- is a de-emphasis on social media as a numbers game, replaced by a greater emphasis on true engagement and community.
