I didn’t expect to learn how to become a futurist at AdTech New York (November 6-7, Javits Center, New York City), but it’s one of the many lessons I learned from a day on the show floor and at the conference.

How to Become a Futurist — Sheryl Connelly, a futurist at Ford, gave the Thursday morning keynote and it was a sobering ten point summary of the challenges facing the world. Here are those challenges in short form Read more »

What on Earth Happened to MySpace?

As we move forward in 2011, Facebook has become synonymous with social networking. People of all ages are using the site to provide status updates, communicate with friends and family members, organize events, upload and share photos, and play games. As of July 2010, Facebook had over 500 million members. In fact, Wikipedia data confirms that if Facebook were a country, it would be the world’s third largest!

Not so long ago, a “little” social networking site called MySpace–maybe you’ve heard of it–was all the rage. In April 2008, InfoTrends conducted the research for its 2008 Online Photo Services End-User report. When respondents who uploaded their personal digital photos to the Internet were asked which site they used most often, MySpace captured the top spot (27%). Facebook followed in a rather distant second place (11%). Fast-forward to our 2010 survey (published in December 2010), and it becomes clear that the dominance has shifted. To be sure, this is putting it mildly. When our 2010 survey participants were asked which site they used most often for photo uploading, a whopping 59% reported uploading their photos to Facebook most often. Although it still captured the second place position, MySpace was cited by only 6% of respondents.
