Is video changing the social media landscape?

Is video changing the social media landscape? | Australian Tourism Export Council | Scoop.it

Social media data from 2014 tells a story about the growing importance of video, for companies like Amazon as well as social networks. Shareholic has released data summarising social referral traffic throughout 2014, helping illustrate how online video is redefining how social networks conduct their business. YouTube saw a decrease in referrals of 65.49% during the fourth quarter of 2014, and Facebook's video efforts may go some way to explaining that dip.

 

Among Shareholic's main findings include:

Facebook drives one-quarter of overall traffic.Pinterest hit its plateau.The six remaining platforms make up less than 2% of total web traffic. These include Twitter, StumbleUpon, Reddit, Google Plus, LinkedIn and YouTube.

Understanding Chinese luxury travellers

Understanding Chinese luxury travellers | Australian Tourism Export Council | Scoop.it

According to research from Brand Karma, luxury travellers from China place higher value on helpfulness and efficiency of service while other APAC travellers prioritise breakfasts and peacefulness in their travel reviews. The Chinese prefer to post on Ctrip and Weibo while the others use TripAdvisor and Facebook most. Google+ has 100 million users in China, Twitter has 80 million and YouTube has 60 million. LinkedIn has over 20 million users according to Business Insider. China does not have a strong Facebook presence and the luxury hotels participate in Weibo. Ctrip receives the most positive reviews (71%) while Dao Dao attracts the least (19%). Chinese travellers are increasingly posting reviews via their phone, while average review length (and number of words) is declining.

Digital opportunities for brands in the travel industry

Digital agency BIO polled 2,000 British holidaymakers online, in order to understand consumer expectations of technology and how these link with travel. When looking for inspiration, selecting a holiday and booking a holiday, more than 41% of respondents said they were ‘extremely likely’ to interact with digital technology. The report also revealed that consumers are largely dissatisfied with the way technology is used in travel, with nearly half the sample (47%) indicating that digital technology could be enhanced by saving them money, followed by saving them time (30%) and providing more tailored experiences (26%). The rapid pace of technological innovation and associated trends in consumer behaviour means the travel sector is in danger of failing to capitalise on the opportunities the digital world now offers.
