Earlier this year, we shared Five Big Trends in 2022 for Nonprofit Social Media, but today I want to give you a heads up about some more things that could change the way you use social media:

  • Short form, vertical video (like what’s used on TikTok and Instagram/Facebook Reels) will continue to rise in popularity
  • Flipbook style content (like Stories and Carousels)
  • Community building will become increasingly more important to brands
  • Social media will continue to be used as a search engine
  • Greater emphasis on mental health
  • Brand inclusivity and more social awareness
  • Trending Audio will be used to connect people like hashtags
  • Customer service via social media will add to social media managers workload
  • Consumers will buy products directly from social media platforms as opposed to following links
  • Influencer marketing keeps rising
  • Continuing turmoil at Twitter
