According to SWAG (scientific wild-assed guesses), what’s really hot right now aren’t the new social media platforms, because Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn and a few others have so much critical mass and momentum. Instead, what’s really hot are the curation offerings, such as Tumblr, Pinterest and Scoop.it, that offer us a relatively easy way to collect the posts, pictures and other stuff we like, and share it. That’s not so new—Digg and Delicio.us started that several years ago, but it’s growing.
