Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Clubhouse - what’s next?! Social platforms change, adapt, and introduce new features every few months. For instance, in the past few years, we have seen a shift from the usual Facebook and Instagram posts to stories, reels, IGTV, live videos, and now the newest kid on the block - drop-in audio chats on Clubhouse! 

The ever-changing social media environment is tough to keep up with but also exceptionally exciting! Brands and marketers have to constantly innovate, adapt, and even pivot to new content strategies.

  1. What new trend or format do you see social media moving towards? Think short term (2 years) and long term (10 years). Examples of social media formats: Short form videos - Instagram Reels and Drop-in audio chats - Clubhouse.
  2. How can brands adapt to existing platforms and drive sales?
    1. Drive sales specifically via Instagram
    2. Drive sales specifically via TikTok
