As September comes to ansocialmedia end (don’t forget about daylight savings this weekend, yikes!) it may be time to look ahead at what 2014 has in store for us. Social media is a quick moving beast, fighting post and share to survive and capture our attention. Jayson DeMers of Seattle, Washington contributes to Forbes, giving us his Top 7 Social Media Marketing Trends That Will Dominate 2014.

On DeMers’ list are a few things I can’t say I’m shocked to see, like LinkedIn being the biggest network for B2B businesses and social media being a necessity not a luxury. We’ve seen this coming. But #3 and #4 are my biggest concern… Image Centric Networks will see huge success and micro-video will soar as well. Hmmmm, I say let’s rise to the challenge! I’m creating Barbara Benton Photography on Instagram and Vine.

Cheers 2014!  

ps. I’m sad to see Foursquare on the chopping block, it’s my favorite guilty pleasure.

If I could trade lives with anyone, today, I would choose Quentin Bacon. Bacon has worked with some of the most inspirational women including First Lady, Michelle Obama and my personal favorite Ina Garten. His food photography is downright brilliant. Even if it was only a one-day trade, I’d take it! I’ve been referred to as a “foodie” by more than a few people, and to be able to work with and photograph some of the most famous faces of food… Words can’t do it justice how over the moon I would be! Cheers Quentin, I envy you and admire all your hard work.Image
