2010 was a rocking year in social media and social innovation.
A list of the innovation trends that I saw in 2010:
Gaming for good, how to develop games that teach people about social issues and raise awareness of your cause.
Micro-volunteering that allows people to donate their time to nonprofits on the web, detractors can no longer refer to volunteering your time on the web as "slacktivism".
Everything is shifting from the web to mobile, organizations are now scrambling to develop mobile apps to further their missions.
Location-based apps / Augmented Reality:
Location, location, location! As everything shifts to mobile, the users' location data is becoming more important to organizations as they seek to bring their networks from the web back into the real world.
Loads of attention on virtual worlds like Second Life, and the many alternatives that have been popping up.
For 2011: I wonder about the attention to accessibility for the needs of various users, I hope that 2011 sees a rise in attention to making everything accessible to everyone.
