3 Biggest Social Media Trends to Know for 2016

3 Biggest Social Media Trends to Know for 2016 | The Social Network Times | Scoop.it
Not all apps have the same power to grab consumer attention. Here are the most notable (and applicable) social media trends that experts predict will emerge this year.

(From the article): Virtual reality will continue to be a buzz-worthy platform, but don't expect it to have a great ROI.


This one's a toss up. Social media consultant Amy Vernon named virtual reality and augmented reality as one of her social media trends to watch this year. 

"The low, low price point of Google Cardboard and other VR goggles makes this something that anyone can afford," writes Vernon. The New York Times' augmented reality app, which was released in November, netted the media company's most successful app launch to date.

 

"You'll see more attempts like that to get VR into the hands of consumers," says Noah Mallin, head of social at the North American branch of media agency MEC Global.

 

But Schafer isn't sold that VR and AR ads and apps will provide any value beyond media buzz. "I just don't think virtual reality will have enough value to advertisers until it's a mainstream experience, and I don't expect that to happen in 2016," he said.

(From the article): Live Video


Every year in the past 10 years, someone's declared that video is going to be the Next Big Thing in social media. And, truthfully, it pretty much is each year. But with the launch of so many live video-streaming platforms in 2015 - Meerkat, Periscope, Blab, Facebook Mentions - it's clear that this is ready for primetime.

 

In fact, Google Hangouts really pioneered in live video streaming being available to just about anyone, but Google's dropped the ball somewhat and has some catching up to do.

 

Again, Facebook's entry into the live-streaming video revolution ensures that "regular" people - consumers, non-marketers, people who aren't first adopters - will start using it. What completely cemented my belief in livestreaming being bigger than we ever imagined in 2016 was reading up on YouNow, the livestreaming app that teens are using and the rest of us completely missed.

 

YouNow has actually found a way to make money without advertising. Teens will pay to watch other teens sleep, dance, sing, talk, anything. Yes, sleep. The platform takes a cut. No ads, and no ads are planned.

Video is dead! Long live video!

Helpful read as you plan for 2016

 

(From the article): This final question brings us full circle. Each social channel is created to be consumed in a different manner than its competitor. Whereas a piece of video content might perform well on Facebook, a news article might perform better on Twitter. A short behind-the-scenes video might do great on Snapchat while a stylized organic photo will perform better on Instagram. As long as the brand understands the purpose of the channel the content creation will follow accordingly. 

This all boils down to the fact that while there may be common questions used to create a social media strategy, the one that is perfect for your brand is anything but cookie cutter. By ensuring that all questions are answered appropriately and all executions are followed through within the proper school of thought, your brand will be well on its way to meeting the social objectives that align with its overarching business and marketing objectives.

Why You Should Commit to Use of Social Media in Schools

Why You Should Commit to Use of Social Media in Schools | The Social Network Times | Scoop.it
More than one year ago, I remember just beginning my digital voyage in tech tools to learn from others. In talking with others and lurking on various social media sites, I slowly got used to tech tools to enhance my learning, such as Twitter, Voxer, and Periscope. I even began using more digital tools in my daily work with staff members and parents, such as my website, Google Apps, the creation of a weekly "Friday Focus" to principals, and even using Facebook and Instagram (@guptank25) to showcase our schools and students.

I distinctively remember times last year, when administrators, from all levels and years of experience, complimented me or thanked me for my work in social media to promote leadership but told me they weren't "quite there yet".  Back then, I would give them a word of encouragement and invite them with support in whatever way I could.

The Next Generation of Social Media in the Office

The Next Generation of Social Media in the Office | The Social Network Times | Scoop.it

When you need to get a message to a colleague, what’s your preferred mode of communication? Do you dash off an email, pick up the phone, or maybe send an instant message via the company’s intranet? A lot has changed since the era of interoffice memos, and how you choose to communicate could well be a generational choice. According to a new study from Peter W. Cardon at the University of Southern California and Bryan Marshall at Georgia College, age differences increasingly result in sharp divergences in how employees connect and correspond with one another.

 

Email still reigns supreme in the workplace, the authors found, but social media networks are poised to take over.

Plus who is better at promoting your product or services than your own team?

(From the article): As marketers we’re so focused on the ‘talking’ side of communication and often ‘listening’ falls by the wayside. 

The insights gained from social media listening can often be just as valuable as the revenue generated from social media and certainly more valuable than a flippant ‘like’ from a passive follower.
