    Great post, Douglas. However, I am surprised not to see "content curation" category in your post. Content creation is all time high and there is so much of valuable content if organized and offered in an appropriate way - for example, using a platform like - can be very powerful for user engagement.

    There are dozens of strategies for content curation so one needs to be clever to pick the right one. For example, take a look at the magazines below built on Netcurate
    These are built by users in 10 minutes and a self-serve platform and now could be leveraged for consumer engagement. 
    We think content curation and engagement is the next big thing - already here!
