Social Media

Social platforms are already great vehicles for introducing consumers to products and brands they may want to purchase. Advertisers should lean into that strength and:

Generative AI takes spotlight at VidCon: As new tools debut, attendees express mixed opinions on AI's impact on content creation.

Reels revolution: Meta doubles down on short-form video to better compete with TikTok.

Every marketer wants to know: What do Gen Z consumers care about? How do they shop? What motivates them to make a purchase?

My AI is an advertising play. At a Wall Street Journal event during the 2023 Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity on Tuesday, Snap CEO Evan Spiegel said that insights gathered from conversations on My AI could help improve advertising on Snapchat.

Are social media AI chatbots just a gimmick? Moves from Snap and other platforms are revealing their potential as advertising tools.

As Facebook loses relevance with younger audiences, D2C ad budgets for CPG brands are diversifying into emerging channels.

Cannes conversations: AI, creators, Big Tech, and DE&I to take the spotlight at next week’s International Festival of Creativity.

On today's episode, we discuss real-world examples of how generative AI can humanize messaging, increase engagement, and turn customers into brand advocates. "In Other News," we talk about why LinkedIn is betting on trust and some promising use cases for generative AI in content marketing. Tune in to the discussion with our analyst Kelsey Voss.

On today's episode, we discuss some predictions for 2023 that are too specific to be 100% certain but could still come true, including: why Microsoft would want to buy Roku, whether TikTok will make a splash in search advertising, who will be the runaway retailer of the year, if Instagram's new Twitter competitor app will be a hit, and more. Tune in to the discussion with our analysts Debra Aho Williamson, Andrew Lipsman, and Paul Verna.

To succeed in digital advertising at a time when consumers worldwide split their time between seven social platforms each day, simple, scaled, AI-powered creative campaigns are key.

TikTok aims to quadruple the size of its global ecommerce business in 2023. But TikTok Shop’s US rollout has been complicated—and that could have implications for the company’s aggressive goal.

Whether you’re an established brand like Wendy’s or a young D2C building an audience, understanding the right mix between organic and paid social is key, especially as the line between the two blurs. “I think paid is planned paid, and organic has opportunistic pay that could go along with it,” said Jimmy Bennett, vice president and global head of brand engagements and partnerships at Wendy’s.

This year, US social network ad spending will grow at its slowest pace since we began tracking it, at just 3.4%, to reach $68.45 billion, according to our forecast.

Gen Z's podcast listening surges: New study reveals insights into the habits and preferences of this diverse listener demographic.

On today's episode, we discuss what AI-generated ads will look like, TikTok testing a new AI chatbot called Tako, Formula One finding a new way to advertise on its cars, ESPN offering its channel as a standalone streaming service, what using VR in a car will look like, visualizing the US workforce as 100 people, and more. Tune in to the discussion with our forecasting writer Ethan Cramer-Flood, director of forecasting Oscar Orozco, and analyst Max Willens.

On today's special episode, we continue our new monthly show where we discuss the biggest trends of the moment and the newest research, sprinkle in some analysis, and bundle it up into a quiz. Every month, three of our analysts representing their respective coverage area teams compete against each other. (We also encourage you to play along at home.) We’ll keep a running score all year and crown a winning team at the end of the year. Today, we cover Google reinventing search, Amazon's grocery strategy, and what Twitter appointing a new CEO means for growth. Tune in to the discussion with this month's contestants: our analysts Ross Benes, Blake Droesch, and Debra Aho Williamson.

On today's episode, we discuss what happens now that Montana has approved a ban on TikTok, what Amazon's AI chatbot might look like, why Meta got a record fine from the EU, what space advertising looks like, a Supreme Court ruling on an infamous internet law, how good humans are at multitasking, and more. Tune in to the discussion with our director of Briefings Jeremy Goldman, analyst Evelyn Mitchell, and vice president of Briefings Stephanie Taglianetti.

TikTok's privacy debacle deepens: Internal documents reveal ByteDance employees have been sharing user data on internal platform Lark, undermining the company's claims of robust security measures and stirring fresh concerns about potential security risks and ties to China
