In the back of my mind I am quietly preparing for the future of what my social media monitoring experience might look like. I’m not talking about whether Google+ or Facebook will be the biggest site or if some other player becomes the social dashboard where we finally get a total view of all of our online social endeavors. I’m talking about things like the digital and physical worlds becoming even more connected—beyond location services on your mobile device.
What if my primary social site, I’ll call it futureBook+ for grins, integrated with my DVR to do predictive recording of television shows based on an algorithm that used my last 6 months worth of status updates, profile info and preferences of new connections I’ve made and reviews I’d written? That could open the door to new shows and movies I might have never thought to watch.
