2018 And Beyond
This year, content is expected to go even more digital according to a prediction from the PR Society of America. A dramatic increase in video content means an upsurge in the use of Snapchat and Instagram. Their story features allow companies to target a specific audience, and create a dialogue between brands and consumers.
News Feed FYI
Facebook is rolling out changes to your newsfeed over the next few months, and it won’t have a positive impact on your Page reach. The social media site will prioritize posts from actual people and show fewer from Pages. The goal is to encourage more meaningful social interactions between friends, family, and groups. Businesses will need to ensure their content is meaningful and engaging to be discovered in your audiences’ News Feed.
