Social Media

On today's episode, we discuss the addressable opportunity in the US, how big the connected TV market is, and how measurement, privacy, and fragmentation are disrupting progress in advanced TV. "In Other News," we talk about how TikTok is trying to usher in an age of machine learning advertising and how Google is trying to put Chrome users in control of their ad experience. Tune in to the discussion with our analyst Evelyn Mitchell.

Insights from the Future of Meta report: We look at key VR hardware and software opportunities for Meta’s future as the company leverages its dominance in VR headsets to build its vision for the metaverse.

In the last year, Meta—and the overall US digital ad market—have changed significantly. Here are seven strategies from our “The Future of Meta” report that marketers should embrace in the new year.

Affiliate marketing is getting a second wind as emerging publishers and creators attract a new crop of advertisers. Here’s a refresher on the benefits of affiliate marketing, as well as a word of caution for advertisers interested in giving it a try.

Meta faces rocky road to reverse underperformance: Q3 shows revenue outlook weakening as metaverse projects swell expenses.

For many, Facebook’s new name introduced “the metaverse” as a concept. But a year out, most people have not entered the metaverse. Right now, Meta’s facelift doesn’t appear to have legs. (Quite literally—the little Horizon Worlds avatars still don’t have legs.)

WhatsApp suffers a global outage: The world’s most popular messaging app went dark in various countries, underscoring the fragility of centralized communications and piling on Meta’s troubles as it prepares for its Q3 earnings call.

According to TikTok, 44% of users are planning to buy or lease a car in the next six months. It’s with that in mind that the platform recently released its “Auto Dealers Playbook,” which aims to help marketers leverage the platform to engage the auto community and boost sales.

Apple is demanding 30% of promoted post transactions: The App Store now says promoted posts should be treated as in-app purchases in a not-so-subtle attack against Meta.

“Social is everything we do. It’s the connective tissue.” That was the message from Meghan Myszkowski, global head of social media for Xbox and Game Pass, at Advertising Week New York. But social media is constantly changing, making brand relevance often hard to achieve. Here’s what brands should keep in mind.

Insider Intelligence spoke with Megan Brophy, Vice President of Marketing and Brand Strategy at Abercrombie & Fitch, about the brand’s work on TikTok and the prevalence of livestream shopping in the US market.

TikTok pushes an AI advertising product: The app’s strong position is letting it experiment with machine learning to court advertisers big and small.

Another brutal quarter for Snapchat: The company’s repeated failure to garner ad interest has left it in a bleak position with an uncertain future.

Last October, CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced that Facebook was rebranding as Meta and setting its sights on the metaverse, which he dubbed the “successor to the mobile internet.” But 12 months and more than $15 billion later, the company has little to show for it.

Over the last couple of years, TikTok has transformed from an app where teens post dance routines to a bona fide social giant, competing with the likes of Facebook and Instagram. And as the platform grows, so does the opportunity for marketers to advertise and sell on it.

BeReal is the newest kid on the social media block. The app has already captured the attention of Gen Z, and its growing popularity has sparked copycat features from Snapchat, Instagram and, yes, even TikTok. But do brands of all stripes need to embrace BeReal—or is it not ready for primetime just yet

TikTok’s latest target is podcasts: YouTube’s success with the format tipped off the short-form video app to an opportunity for incremental growth.

TikTok signals creators are central to its courtship of advertisers: The platform announces a number of updates, with its creator marketplace upgrades being most significant.

TikTok bets on social commerce to deliver significant revenues: The platform is reportedly planning to build its own network of fulfillment centers.

Q3 wasn’t an easy quarter for Meta. Snap is in a tough spot. TikTok was the elephant in the room amid its rivals’ disappointing Q2 earnings calls.
