My predictions for 2013

Looking through many of top trends of last year most of them are related to music or soccer(football) one way or the other. With this in mind I’ve created my list of what I think will be the top ten biggest trends on Facebook this year.

1.  One Direction
2.  The Voice
3.  German Election
4.  The Eruption of Yellowstone Caldera
5.  SuperBowl XLVII
6. Facebook buys Bing and integrates it fully into Facebook
