Blogging and social media are two things that go hand in hand. Believe it or not these two things are here to stay and stay for long. With content marketing also coming in the picture, there's no doubt that blogging has gone to a totally different realm.

Another new trend that you must look out for is 'social media curation'.

Social media curation has no bookish defination but going by what people think of it - it is the process of collecting, filtering and selecting information and providing commentary with a perspective on an article.
