Here, we are going to talk about some of the most significant and effective social media marketing trends of 2020. So, let’s get right into it.

1) Its Stories Time

Nowadays, people do not pay much attention to long posts. After all, when we are piled up with working and slowly adjusting to remote working due to the pandemic, our attention span has decreased. It is all about tapping through stories of Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and recently introduced LinkedIn stories.

  • Stories are short, crisp, and stays for a short period.
  • They can catch your attention within a blink of an eye.
  • Brands can communicate with their customer base via stories. They have features that help brands to engage with their consumer base.

2)  Instagram to Remove Likes

One of the biggest buzz in the social media marketing world. Instagram, which is one of the biggest social media platforms, has brought up the possibility to remove the likes feature for Instagram posts. They tried this proposal in beta form and may go for the change globally soon.

But why? Why would Instagram remove one of its most basic features? The logic that they have given is that likes dictate one’s social value, and that kind of validation is toxic to people’s mental health. Effect of The Social Dilemma, is it?

3) Reel It In!

Instagram Reels are the next big thing after the TikTok ban. This is where influencer marketing comes in, as well. Insta reels are blowing off the roof as they are short, crisp, and profusely engaging. Let’s accept it; they are quite addictive as well.

Now Instagram reels are mostly dancing, music, and other creative stuff mostly. But how can businesses take advantage of reels?

One can make behind the scene videos, staff-meet up reels, and more professional yet creative content. Video content features, such as stop motion videos, are becoming popular in the business world. So, if you are planning to jump on this new trend, reel it in!

4) Video Content
