About the LinkedIn Report - The LinkedIn Trend Report details the most innovative strategies for businesses, covering forward-thinking social media campaigns and how consumers are interacting with these strategies. What started as a career networking site where consumers created a professional LinkedIn profile to emulate an online CV has evolved into a highly integrated platform to serve other business needs for the working professional. From our crowd-sourced research, companies will understand how the site is best used, as seen with trends integrating KLM Airline seats with the social network, or various apps developed to best manage contacts.

Search Engine Reliance Businesses and individuals increase their dependancy on web search Implications - Google Search, Facebook Graph, Bing, and others are all shaping the way that we think about the world. Reliance on search engines for information, recommendations, socializing and sharing has become innate and those business who don't have a continuously evolving search engine optimization strategy for the future, will quickly find themselves becoming more irrelevant.

Social Seating Air travel based on potential seat partners and friends' travel plans Implications - Flying is tedious and stressful for most travelers, but some airlines and flight services are making the activity easier and more fun by offering seating arrangements based on social matching. Ranging from couples-only travel promos to services that will choose a seat mate for you based on compatibility, these social flying innovations are a great way to ensure consumers have a more memorable experience with one's airline by increasing the likelihood that they will enjoy their flights more so than if they had chosen a competitor.

Social Guidance Visual guides help marketers better understand social media platforms Implications - When marketers had only to worry about using Facebook as a marketing tool, things were a whole lot easier. But now, with Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube, Foursquare and other social media networks added to the mix, it's difficult to know what to do and where to start. Giving brands and marketers a bit of guidance are infographics and visual guides that break down the basics of using these social media platforms to spread a brand message. While they might not provide a comprehensive marketing strategy, at the very least they deliver a visual snapshot of the state of the social media landscape and ideas of how to approach each platform.

The dating arena can now expand to Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare and more, something that is demonstrated by the rise of dating apps that use social media as a launch pad. While traditional dating sites still have a place, popular social media like Facebook provide a foundation that most people are familiar with and trust, thereby allowing the dating app to be quickly adopted and shared.
