You never know where the next big thing will come from. It could be a kid mocking another kids fashion sense on Snapchat (Damm Daniel), or someone could fuse multiple cultural influences together to create a new masterpiece (like Jazz music). With that in mind, here are 10 Things Which Could Go Big This Year.

We’re hoping that YouTuber Casey Neistat’s new partnership with CNN can bring a new intuitive and innovative social media platform. This could be it…
