What was once the sole focus of social media marketing has nearly become an afterthought as businesses allocate more and more of their budgets into social media advertising. And who can blame them when the networks have forced everyone into a “pay-to-play” world and regularly adjust their algorithms to downplay organic reach. Within the following post, we’re breaking down insights and best practices based on our recent...

5 Reasons We’re Cautious About Facebook’s Plans to Launch Instagram for Kids

News broke earlier this month that Facebook has plans to build a new version of Instagram for kids under the age of 13. They’ve chosen 13 because anyone below that age is currently prohibited from using any of Facebook’s products (Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, Messenger) aside from Messenger Kids, which was released in late 2017. Age 13 is also the cutoff for the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), which has tougher restrictions on platforms for younger kids. Given the volume o...

4 Major Solutions Facebook Should Focus on for Brand Pages

There are currently over 80 million businesses worldwide using Facebook Pages. It’s safe to assume that more than one person manages many of those Pages, especially when you look at larger brands that are dedicating significant budgets to social media efforts. Armed with that knowledge, one might also assume that managing a brand page on Facebook would be rather simple, especially with over 14 years of optimizations and improvements within the platform. Unfortunately, it’s not always that sim...

What Facebook Needs to Focus on Fixing

It’s July 2020, which means Stop Hate for Profit is underway. If you’re not familiar, Stop Hate for Profit is a recent protest where large advertisers have pulled their budgets from Facebook and Instagram to try and get Facebook to adjust their policies on hate speech on the platform. As laudable as this effort is, I think it slightly misses the mark on what areas of the platform Facebook needs to work towards fixing. Here’s why. Facebook Removes 90% of Hate Speech Automatically ...

The Current Online Shopping Landscape In response to the global pandemic, buyers significantly have shifted their consumption behaviors.

Moreover, a report from GlobalWebIndex found that...

Next Phase of Social Shopping: Facebook and Instagram Checkout

Ever since Facebook and Instagram started selling ad space, marketers have wondered when social shopping and the direct purchase of products would become available via the platforms. That time is officially here, and brands should start thinking about how they might implement direct buying on the platforms for their customers.

Three Things Facebook Is Trying to Make Happen in 2020

As brand marketers on social media, we typically play by the “rules” of whichever platform on which we’re looking to distribute our message, with the rules in this case being the algorithm, updates being rolled out, and new ad units the platforms want us to put money behind. Oftentimes, that platform is Facebook given its advanced advertising capabilities and massive audience. As we venture further into 2020, we’ve noticed a few Facebook trends that continue to resurface as key players that Face...

Why “Hidden Like Counts” Won’t Hurt Influencer Marketing

Back in April, Instagram began a test in which they hid the number of likes each post gets from public view. While the original poster can still see the count, other users cannot. The stated goal is to reduce, particularly among young people, the negative pressure caused by competing for likes and the embarrassment of low like counts. This test expanded on Instagram in July and began rolling to Facebook in certain regions this September.  Based on the expansion, it now seems more likely...

Strategy Note: Facebook F8 2019

What the Teens Are Up To: Most Used Social Channels

While parenting a 13-year-old, I realized two things: first, I’m old and second, social media wasn’t a thing when I was a teen. To stay relevant to my ever-growing bundle of joy, I’ve had to dive into apps I otherwise wouldn’t use as much. Before doing any research, I assumed that YouTube and Instagram would be ranked the highest among teen’s most used social channels. I was partially right! According to the 2Pew Research Center’s 2018 poll, 32% of teens in the U.S. use YouTube the most while 3...
