Instagram Stories is stealing Snapchat’s users I TechCrunch | SOCIAL LISTENING | Scoop.it

Most reported declines in Snapchat Stories view counts ranging from 15 to 40 percent, and a reduction in how often they or those they monitor post to Snapchat Stories. Meanwhile, our sources report rapidly growing view counts on Instagram Stories, and engagement-to-follower rates one social influencer talent agent called “Insanely f*cking high”.

The success of Instagram Stories, the decline in Snapchat usage we’ve heard from a wide array of sources, and Facebook’s relentless drive to compete with the startup could spell trouble for Snapchat’s IPO on the NYSE market that’s expected in March. Snap Inc declined to comment for this story.

How Instagram's New Feed Will Impact Brands And Influencers I BOF

How Instagram's New Feed Will Impact Brands And Influencers I BOF | SOCIAL LISTENING | Scoop.it

Back in March, Instagram announced that “in the coming months” it would implement an algorithm that, instead of ordering posts in users’ feeds in reverse-chronological order, will order them based on "the likelihood you’ll be interested in the content," using signals such as likes, comments and searches.

Instagram says that users miss on average 70 percent of their feeds, so the change will ensure they see the content that matters to them. The company also tried to reassure its 400 million users that they would be told when the feed was rolled out and that at least initially, no posts will be removed from feeds — they will just be shown in a different order.

Snapchat Is Raising More Money Around $20 Billion Valuation I TechCrunch | SOCIAL LISTENING | Scoop.it

Snapchat may have first made its name in the crowded world of mobile apps with an ephemeral messaging service, but the startup and its wildly popular app are not disappearing anywhere soon.
