As the year comes to an end, we wanted to take a moment to share our favorite (and trendsetting for 2011) blog posts of 2010.
These come from a variety of different sources and stretch from social commerce and ecommerce to social search and cash payments. We hope that you find them as useful as we have, and recommend that you include these blogs in your 2011 regular reading time, in addition to Building Keystones of course!

As 2011 approaches, we wanted to leave you with one prediction for the new year: We think LinkedIn will begin offering a store concept within the LinkedIn company section.

Wishing you a safe and happy 2011!
