So it's coming to the end of the year - Let's see where you are with Social Media.  Here are some things you SHOULD KNOW.  If you haven't heard about these things then you have a lot of work to do in 2012 to stay ahead of the trends and to be aware of what is actually going on in virtual land.  These were some hot internet crazes.

 1.  Planking - If you haven't tried it that's okay, but you better know what this is.  (Picture)
