Gifnote Is Named As A Top Trend For 2019

World Renowned Trendspotter and Futurist Marian Salzman Predicts Songbytes™ Will Help Foster And Deepen Human Connection in 2019

NEW YORK, Dec. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- "The End of C" has been identified as one of 2019's trends by world-renowned trendspotter Marian Salzman in her annual global trends report, citing civility, compromise, constraint and conversation as fast-fading. Salzman finds that the notions of character and decency are quickly being relegated to relic status.

"Today, a conversation is often reduced to a quick text, an urgent command (another C word— but one that's growing) or an emotion conveyed with an emoticon," stated Marian Salzman.  "And make no mistake, there are emoticons for everything now. There's even World Emoji Day, and alternatives have popped up like GIFs and musical mentions to insert easily—check out the new app Gifnote - to humanize or soften the message."
