Augmented reality 

Although this has been brewing in the pipe lines for a while, it is finally augmented reality’s turn to take centre stage and lead the way. Augmented reality is just a different way of viewing things, literally. It is a way of viewing the physical world with an element of augmentation which is supplemented by a computer-generated supplementary input. Therefore, it is a way to change the way in which you view the world by adding another element through a screen.

FB@Work 

Yes, it is true, the Facebook team plan to strike again. Last year they bought Whatsapp and this year, are rumoured to be launching a new version of this popular social media platform to challenge LinkedIn. FB@Work will function on a similar basis as the popular currently unrivalled LinkedIn as a social media platform for business professionals.

Pinterest and Instagram 

These two were so strong in 2014 however, it is believed they will continue to rise. The two old faithful social media platforms offer instant imagery for your brands to thrive on and can reach thousands of loyal viewers in a few seconds. Watch them (and your social media reputation) rise.
