Social Media

On today's episode, we discuss Twitter's post-election malaise, Reddit's growth engine, and LinkedIn's and Pinterest's pandemic pivots. We then talk about Nextdoor's ceiling, TikTok being allowed to stay in the US, and the implications of young creator burnout. Tune in to the discussion with eMarketer principal analyst at Insider Intelligence Debra Aho Williamson.

BuzzFeed will pay up to $10K to creators: The program will award prizes for top-performing content. Though it will only last through the summer, it's likely a pilot program or a precursor to a more social BuzzFeed Community hub.

In 2021, the number of monthly Facebook users in the US will increase by less than 1% year over year, the platform’s lowest annual growth rate to date. Much of this deceleration is due to last year’s higher-than-expected growth of 3.3%, which was driven by changes in media habits during the pandemic.

Pinterest gets a Shopping List: The new feature strengthens Pinterest's lower-funnel capabilities, a key ingredient for its social commerce ambitions.

On today's episode, we discuss which platforms have the most creator-friendly environments, how influencer marketing is evolving, and what the next stage of the creator economy will look like. We then talk about Pinterest's new livestreaming feature, the popularity of influencer marketing on TikTok, and how companies should navigate social media coming out of the pandemic. Tune in to the discussion with eMarketer senior analyst at Insider Intelligence Jasmine Enberg.

On today's episode, we discuss what the world will look like in 2030. Who will be the digital ad giants, how much shopping will we do online, will bank branches disappear, and more. Tune in to the discussion with eMarketer vice president of forecasting Monica Peart, senior director of forecasting Shelleen Shum, and directors of forecasting at Insider Intelligence Cindy Liu and Oscar Orozco.

The past year has been a whirlwind for many brands as they readjusted their marketing efforts to keep up with the changing landscape. One such brand, direct-to-consumer (D2C) company Peace Out Skincare, learned to be more nimble as it navigated a then-emerging platform—TikTok—and the Gen Z customers it caters to.

On today's episode, we discuss how concerned we should be about Netflix's slow start to the year, which activities people will do at home versus in-person (if both were safe and possible), how TikTok can convince people to buy things on its platform, details about a Twitter Blue subscription service, whether a travel recovery already happened, some interesting facts about 'Forrest Gump,' and more. Tune in to the discussion with eMarketer director of forecasting Oscar Orozco, forecasting analyst Peter Vahle, and analyst at Insider Intelligence Blake Droesch.

Creators have never been hotter: Social platforms want them, and marketers want to work with them. The creator economy is offering up new or improved opportunities for creators to make money outside of brand partnerships. So, where does that leave brands?

Snapchat goes all in on AR ecommerce: The platform's long history with augmented reality innovation gives it a boost over competitors like Amazon or Pinterest looking to leverage AR for shopping.

On today's episode, we discuss how Facebook is handling Apple's iOS14.5 update, its new 'Neighborhoods' feature, whether people will want to listen to podcasts on the blue app, organic marketing losing its shine on the larger social media platforms, what the Facebook Oversight Board's landmark ruling means, a balancing miracle, and more. Tune in to the discussion with eMarketer principal analyst Debra Aho Williamson, senior analyst Sara M. Watson, and analyst at Insider Intelligence Blake Droesch.

When Blink Fitness had to temporarily close its doors at the height of the pandemic, the company quickly shifted its focus to where consumers were: online.

On today's episode, we discuss how US social media use is changing and why. We then talk about how the social network giants are trying to make their platforms less "anxiety-provoking," why the new NFL-iHeartMedia podcast deal is so significant, and whether the nostalgia marketing trend will dominate 2021. Tune in to the discussion with eMarketer director of forecasting Oscar Orozco and senior forecasting analyst at Insider Intelligence Peter Newman.

Here's when TikTok will dance past Snapchat

In-person discovery is an integral part of a spirit marketer’s strategy. So when brand discovery shifted online, Brenne Whisky found that consumers aren’t shy about a buy-to-try purchase. Watch Industry Voices Spotlight on CPGs with Brenne’s president and founder Allison Parc to hear how direct-to-consumer (D2C) access made continued discovery possible.

Many marketers had long underestimated the value of creators in their marketing mix. That’s no longer the case. Most brands today have incorporated influencer marketing into their media plans, and many intend to allocate even more funds to the tactic this year.

How TikTok shopping would change the app: TikTok is testing a shopping tab, which would make ecommerce more prominent on the app, strengthen its performance marketing options, and maybe get marketers to stop seeing it as just an experimental platform.

Instagram for Kids: Eroded user trust and heightened regulatory scrutiny are threatening to bury Facebook’s plan for a version of Instagram geared towards children. That could prove disastrous for Facebook’s future growth.
