What Will Social, Local and Mobile Integration Really Look Like? And What Are We Calling It? Popular Today in Business: All Popular Articles SIGMA CEO Kenyon Blunt recently published his predictions for 2012 Marketing Trends. Included in those 10 trends was this idea of “SoLoMo” or “Mocial” Marketing: Social, Local and Mobile marketing all mashed up into one concept. The infographic provided by Silverpop provides some interesting nuggets about gaps in this form of integrated and true multichannel marketing. I have a feeling that those marketers who have successfully connected with customers and prospects through mobile opt-in, whether messaging or a custom app for the smart phone, may establish deep loyalty before their competitors even hit the ground running with mobile marketing. To that end, a combined 30 % of marketers surveyed by Silverpop planned to launch a mobile app in 2011 or 2012, and another 33% already had.

f8: A New Class of Apps We are hosting our fourth f8 conference today in San Francisco, where we’re introducing the the next evolution of Facebook Platform and the Open Graph. The Open Graph is the most significant update to Platform since it launched in 2007, expanding the capabilities and opportunities for social apps, from music to TV to news to lifestyle apps such as cooking, fitness, and travel. We launched the Like button at last year's f8, and it quickly became one of the most popular tools on the Internet. As we have continued to introduce more features on Facebook Platform, now more than 500 million people engage with Facebook across more than 7 million apps and websites every month. Compared to f8 last year, this is close to double the number of people and triple the apps and websites. Introducing Timeline As part of f8, today we announced Timeline. All developers will have access to a pre-release version of Timeline for testing after your app is configured to use Open Graph actions and objects.
