I believe 2012 will go down in history as the year crowdsourcing came into its own. Charities, artists and entrepreneurs raised millions of dollars by crowdsourcing their investments on sites like Kickstarter and indiegogo. Hard-bound encyclopedias went the way of the dinosaur just as the crowdsourced reference Wikipedia became one of the ten most visited websites in the world.
Even everyday Americans got into the swing of things, taking to Facebook and tapping their social networks for everything from recipes to referrals to their kidsâ€™ homework assignments.

advice for buying your next place, find out about nearby neighborhoods, and
more. (At the very least, you should ask your own Facebook friends for their
real estate tips.) I want to put the power of the whole Trulia community in
your hands, harnessing the crowd to surface the must-read posts of the year.
