2011 was a bumper year for Social Media with The worldwide occupy movements, The Arab Spring, English Riots and so on but 2012 is going to be just as big for social media from the continued struggle in Syria to the African Nations Cup, Euro 2012, Queen Elizabeth's Diamond jubilee, The London Olympics and the political mud slinging from the U.S as the nation take to the poles.
One thing is for sure We are going to use social media and how! but what network? Many are predicting this could be the year that we see Google eating into Facebook's dominance especially now they have launched their own music streaming service and already have the worlds biggest (and newly revamped) Video sharing site and great apps that are the back bone to many businesses such as Spotify and this site right here.Facebook will soon be going public with an IPO on the horizon. One thing is for certain none of the two of them will give up so this may be a fight to the bitter end.

2012 is a big year as the U.S go to the poles and social media is going to take centre stage with Twitter allowing political ads and as well as politicians twitter, facebook and Google+ pages however one obvious thing to note is just because you're the most talked about doesn't mean your going to win.
Big Sports Year
|Let the Games Begin!|
This is a massive year for sport With Europe and Africa having their Continental football tournaments and the spectacle that will be the London Olympics along with the game how many nations can Mayor Boris Johnson offend :). It will be fascinating to see How Africa takes to social media with the tournament in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea. Many Africans have signed up to social networks just to talk about their national side.
What do you think will be the major talking points of 2012?
