According to new Dutch trend predictions for 2012 anything and everyone media savvy like Foursquare is out of fashion and anonymity is the new ‘cool’.

To love each other (rather than getting married)
Radio (as opposed to TV)
Serving Leadership build on thrust and achievements
Old fashion (made) pictures
Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility (as opposed to self enrichment)
Say yes to moving
Depth (as opposed to superficiality)
Crowdfunding (as opposed to Good Cause)
Full sentences (as opposed to abbreviations)

Despite what all marketing agencies say, when I read this list, I conclude that for 2012 there will be more Social but less Media. And that is probably a good thing.
