These social networks are bound to get bigger in 2013. Feel free to add in additional social networks that are on your radar under this post in the comments section below!

1) Inbound:

The goal of Inbound.org is to enable great content from the world of inbound marketing to get noticed.

2) Instagram:

A picture  is worth a thousand words, and Instagram has plenty of photos to go around with one hundred million users and billions of photos between them. Instagram is a fast, beautiful and fun way to share your photos with friends and family. Snap a picture, choose a filter to transform its look and feel, then post to Instagram. Share to Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr too – it’s as easy as pie. It’s photo sharing, reinvented.

3) Myspace:

MySpace social media network is back, again. They are sticking to their roots by empowering people to express themselves however they want.  This is especially true for musicians, photographers, filmmakers, designers and dedicated fans. The website’s still in closed beta at the moment but will be released soon. The new look, new management and direction of the site  make it one that’s worth following in 2013!
