    What is the Next Big Thing after "social media"?

    June 12, 2013

    • Andras P.

      Who said it was dead? Of course, not! Some extremely successful investors scan, however, the horizon for more aggressive growth (hint: Yurij Milner).

      Well i'm no one to help you decide but i will share my opinion, we as humans have the ability to learn and if we can learn more than what our profesion gives us then we can do more

    Big data, no SQL is the next thing I hear about often. However there is still a lot in social media since marketing is a fundamental of any business.
