Social Media Cheat Sheet 2017

Social Media 2017

In 2013, we wrote a post for a cheat sheet to social media for 2013-2014. Reading it over, I thought, ‘wow this was ages ago’. Since when did 3-4 years become ages? Well, when we’re talking about the digital landscape and social media trends, even one year is AGES.

In our previous post, we discussed Snapchat (sorry, Snap-what?). Since Instagram launched it’s Instagram Stories feature, Snapchat growth has slowed by a whopping 82%. Refer to our cheat sheet below for a break down, but perhaps if your business is relying on the Snapchat platform to reach users, your competitors using Instagram might be about to get a leg up (if they haven’t already).

If you take a look at most marketing campaigns across the globe right now, brands are choosing their ambassadors in a different way than they did just a few years ago. Rather than selecting movie stars and pop stars, brands are choosing key influencers. A key influencer could be a regular teenager that has 10 million followers for no reason other than they have great style, run a successful food blog or even if they just post funny videos with their friends. Don’t be fooled into thinking influencers are limited to Gen Z; they are people of all demographics who use social platforms in the right way. They are their own brand.

Whether you already have a social strategy in place, or if you are looking to build one from scratch, our cheat sheet breaks down the most used social media platforms right now.

&Mine Laboratory

&Mine team is a melting pot of technology and creative minds. Each year, we slice a few percent of our bandwidth to develop our own commercial projects. For example, we have developed a prototype Posture Detector with the help of Melbourne University's Engineering Department that will send signals to your smartphone and vibrate if your posture is poor. We are also improving our suite of cloud based software applications like Meet&Mine, our Networking Software. During its first year gathering data, it referred over half a million dollars of real business for a small Melbourne network group. If you’d like to know more about our laboratory projects and how you can get involved in capital raising, marketing or support, simply contact us.
