Happy new year. How has 2016 been treating you so far? It’s a new year but it most certainly will mark a continuum in the evolution of social media platforms and the way we use them. Our team went about having its own predictions for the industry and what really comes out is that platforms will keep on growing, especially those where the importance of video has grown over the last 12 months. I’m thinking Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, but Twitter even, which recently introduced auto-play on all its apps. And what can we say about messaging apps? There too, video calls and live stream video will play a huge part in 2016.

A great social media manager is also one who knows how to monitor, analyse, learn, understand and react accordingly. And reaction marketing – a.k.a real-time marketing – is also likely to become big in 2016. You have been warned.
