Social Media News Round Up – Summer 2018

Social Media News Round Up – Summer 2018 special with Natalie Eminae.

The team is back for another series of updates on the most popular social media platforms.

We start with some individual news: Leon’s got a brand new job, Natalie’s got a brand new team and I have got a brand new office (well almost) and we get straight into the latest news for Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, Linkedin, Twitter and more…

[00:02:40] a reasonably busy summer for Facebook with some tweaking to the layout of profiles, pages and groups; a future re-release of Facebook Marketplace; new features including uploading Stories from desktop, adverts options reshuffled and playing vertical videos in full

[00:19:30] The battle between Instagram and Snapchat continues; Instagram Stories doing better than Facebook Stories; opportunities to take advantage of IG TV for long form content; community watching of video content to engage your audience

[00:29:20] YouTube slowly rolling out the 3 video display options: landscape, square, portrait; and a bizarre PR stunt with a full movie being uploaded ‘by error’

[00:32:10] Linkedin making small, slow but clear progress in the right direction with the increase in hashtags, the re-introduction of Linkedin Groups, a refresh of the messaging app and the addition of machine translation

[00:39:00] Twitter is still looking for its place in the social media ecosystem, recently sending suggestions of accounts to unfollow; investing in AI to remove fake accounts and malicious content

[00:47:30] Strategy Of The Month: investing more time in building relationships with micro-influencers and community managers

[00:47:30] App Of The Month:

[00:54:15] Leon’s Find Of The Month: Google France advising its users of the imminent closure of Google+ and suggesting moving on to Twitter or Facebook
