At BlogWorld & New Media Expo 2009, I led a panel titled "Social Media: The Bad and the Ugly" with Amber Naslund, Robert Scoble and Wayne Sutton.
On the panel, we talked about trends in social media that concerned us and that we felt could harm the growth of the medium as a whole. These are also trends that could harm your brand, scare people away and damage your reputation. We highlighted six trends in all.
