While seeking to bring 2008 trends prediction from an angle not suggested before, TrendsSpotting chose to present the Meta Trends for 2008. Running a unique methodology, we selected a group of ten marketing influencers as well as ten web/tech reviewers suggesting their trends forecast for 2008 on the public media.
We profiled each forecast according to three relevant categories for general trends predictions: “in”, “out” and “yet to come”. Finally - we ran a tag cloud on all forecasts to present what will be “In” for 2008.

Hope you will find this useful. Do tell me your thoughts and insights.

I am flattered by your friend request.
But you have a lot of friends and I just can't imagine myself getting the attention I deserve in this virtual friendship.
