2010 Social Media Prediction Report Card

Last year I did like every other social media blogger out there and made some predictions for 2010. I actually posted two different sets of predictions.

What does your job title say about you? Mine says I’ll be out of work soon.

Paul Dunay wrote a very compelling post that if followed would lead to me being fired: Fire your Director of Social Media! | Buzz Marketing for Technology Ideally, I think you need to treat the role of the Director of Social Media as a way to activate the entire organization socially and then when that’s [...]

How will the Future of Marketing be Organized?

So I’ve made the prediction that Marketing and PR (and potentially all comms) will be rolled up into one group. Making the prediction was easy.

What Does the Future of Marketing Organizations Look Like?

Here’s some images I pulled from a rough draft proposal I’ve been working on. I’ve really been taking a look at how should communications organizations be structured moving forward and what are the processes that need to be developed? I’d love your thoughts.
