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.
