Chatbots have Arrived

Mobile Focused Social Media

Currently, social media is rolling out their content keeping mobile users in mind. Though Facebook was originally designed for desktop, yet with passing years, it has evolved a lot to fit the bill for the users who access the internet from their Smartphone while on the go. Now, Snapchats and Instagram are mobile-focused platforms, yet Instagram can be operated from the desktop. However, more than 80% users use it from their mobile devices. That is why, you have to keep the mobile devices in mind while developing content or design. When you are setting your ad on social media, give the tags and the CTA which will perfectly fit the Smartphone screen.

Don’t Eliminate One Platform for Similar Feature

When it comes to features, various platforms are imitating each other. For example, Facebook and Instagram have copied the “Stories” feature from Snapchat. Be rest assured, this imitation will increase in future. But that doesn’t mean that you need to eliminate one platform based on only a particular feature. If you do so, you will be eliminating your potential of reaching a certain demographic.

Make Video a Part of Content Strategy

If you are thinking that this trend might go down in 2018, then you are mistaken. Rather, now, posting older content in a video format is in fad. Make video an integral part of your content strategy.
