Out of the 25 trends, things to watch in 2011 mentioned in the presentation, I think the most popular trend for 2011 is going to be Facebook Alternatives. The economy is going to continue feeding off the social network because it gives people of all ages a chance to talk to individuals not just locally but across the world. I believe Facebook Alternatives will be the most popular trend in 2011 because Facebook Alternatives will provide special interest sites to people with familiar likes. Facebook Alternatives sites provides a way to learn about other cultures, communities, and specialized groups such as college students, professional sites, specific hobbies, and race or gender specific sites. Facebook Alternatives promote a more comfortable environment for people to speak more freely because other users share your thoughts and desires.
