To get a grip on what the near future may look like, we tapped the knowledge of 21 social media pros.
Here’s what they had to say.
And if you’re curious, here were the 2012 predictions.
Patrick Ness’s novel A Monster Calls has won both the prestigious Carnegie Medal and its sister prize for illustration for the first time in the awards’ history.
A Monster Calls tells the story of a boy coming to terms with his mother’s battle against cancer.
Ness described the win as “extremely humbling - and a little unnerving”.
For the first time, the same book won the Kate Greenaway Medal for book illustration, with Jim Kay picking up the prize at a ceremony at the Barbican in London on Thursday.
Need to look into this book.

Twitter has quietly tweaked the way usernames, hashtags, photos and more are cross-posted to Facebook.
“The updated Twitter for Facebook integration now includes additional rich media experiences related to the first photo, URL, @mention or #hashtag in the cross-posted tweet,” Twitter spokesman Robert Weeks told Mashable on Thursday night. “This update is available for everyone.”
Twitter‘s Help Center also notes the changes, which Weeks says rolled out at the end of May: “We have fixed many issues with the Twitter for Facebook integration, including the ability to post to Facebook Pages, and added some new features!”
Users who don’t see the integration working can disconnect their Twitter and Facebook accounts in their Twitter profile settings and then reconnect their accounts in their Twitter profile settings.
The stock is falling! The stock is falling! If you stopped following the Facebook IPOcalypse on Friday, it might be time to pull up another chair.
Facebook was never worth $104 billion. And the IPO was never about a stock price shooting into the stratosphere. There’s a reason nearly every significant early investor—including Mark Zuckerberg—sold of tens of millions of shares in the lead-up to Friday’s debut. It was easily the best price they were going to get for the foreseeable future. Meanwhile, Facebook has an extra $16 billion in the bank. Win-win, assuming you were already a billionaire.

The secrets of one of the most remarkable technological finds from Ancient Greece have been probed for the first time using powerful X-ray imaging equipment, specially shipped to Athens.
The Antikythera Mechanism as it is known, is regarded as the world’s oldest “computer” and is thought to have been used to predict solar and lunar eclipses and record dates of the ancient Olympiad. Its remains were recovered from a Roman shipwreck off the southern coast of Greece in 1901.
