It's that time of year again, and the prognosticators predicting what's in store in the new year are out in force, observes Ellis Booker on the CMO Site blog. Every working marketer understands in a broad sense that social media matters, says the former BtoB editor-in-chief, and that social media isn't an outbound, unidirectional marketing channel.
