Linked In has changed the face of the job search, in that you can see which of your already friends is on LinkedIn to network with them as well as others in your field. Also, many businesses use Linked In instead of going the route of the employment ad, to find qualified employee’s without having to sift thru resumes.
Pinterest, I could see being used by business’s in the future, but more by small busineses competing with larger ones, such as a small clothing designer, showing models wearing the dresses, or a hair salon etc.
I would have in the future, a travel app, called ” Amelia” after Amelia Earhart. Amelia would is where you could go to find hotel rooms that may not have sold, reviews of places, restaurants, airline tickets and car rentals, There would be a great input from the consumer. A example would be, if I were in Walt Disney World, and I wanted to know where to dine, I would type in WDW-Epcot, and reviews and prices would pop up, as well as the ablity to make reservations.
There would also be a ” personal shopping app” called Ellie. Ok, if you wanted a white top and blue skirt, at say, Ann Taylor Loft, you would go into the app, order and view the sizes and styles, and when you got to the location, go in and pay for it, you would pay for it thru your app with your linked credit card.
The above is also future predictions on how shopping will change in the future.
