Social networks and online video sites were very popular this year: the most notable new entry is Badoo (trend), "a multi-lingual London based, social networking website, offering its users the ability to connect with people at a local and global level, to share photos and videos with friends, to create reportages of their lives, and to promote themselves and their work." Facebook (trend) is another winner, as it managed to launch a successful platform for applications and find a way to monetize its service. Webkinz toys (trend) were also popular this year, the same as virtual worlds: Second Life for adults and Club Penguin for kids (trends).
