We all know that Facebook and Instagram are great ways to connect with friends and share fun experiences with the people you care about. But did you know that these platforms are already used for a whole host of other purposes? From sharing holidays to events to business dealings, you’ll find that these social media platforms have become a powerful tool for connecting with the people in your life. The only problem? We’re only just beginning to see the power of these platforms as a force to be reckoned with.
In our world of instant gratification, it can be hard to remember that not everyone shares our love of social media. But the future of these platforms isn’t just about posting more photos and videos; it’s about giving users more ways to connect with the people they care about. Here are 5 ways that social media is already changing the way we connect with the people in our lives.
NFTs Are Coming to Facebook and Instagram!
We’ve all heard that Facebook is only becoming more social and Instagram is just getting more powerful, but have you been paying attention to the fact that these platforms are also coming to Facebook and Instagram? Facebook is set to launch its own version of Instagram, and Instagram is planning to open up their platform to more developers. This means that we’re in store for a social media onslaught of the new year.
NFTs Are Using Instagram to Create Community
Just about everyone has an Instagram account, and it’s likely that you use it to follow and share photos with your followers. But do you know that Instagram is just as much of a social media platform as Facebook and Twitter? That’s right! Instagram is a global community; it doesn’t matter where you are in the world, you can follow and add people to your feed, just like on Facebook and Twitter.
NFTs Are Turning to Facebook for Company Events
Facebook’s recent announcement that it would be adding a “Facebook for Business” section to its site has social media pros buzzing. With this new platform, businesses can create a Facebook page, add event details and invite their fans to attend. While many companies are using social media to promote their business, Facebook is especially attractive to companies that want to use the platform to relaunch old brands or create new content.
NFTs Are Finding Other Benefits of Social Media
Beyond the obvious – Facebook and Instagram are great for connecting with friends and family, and Twitter is still used by many professionals as a communication tool – social media has plenty of hidden benefits that you may not even be aware of. Here are just a few of the many benefits that you may not know about: Real-time analytics – You’re probably familiar with the idea of getting a instant report on the number of likes and comments for your posts, but have you ever stopped to wonder how many people you’re actually connecting with? With the help of social media analytics, you can find out. Marketing on the cheap – We all pay $1 or $2 for a post on social media platforms, but those costs quickly add up when you consider the time spent creating, managing and posting content. For example, if you want to run a social media campaign for your business, it would cost you $50 for 1,000 impressions. On Facebook, that’s usually the equivalent of hanging out at a restaurant for 20 minutes, so you could easily spend $80 for the same result.
Apps and platforms are being used to schedule meetings
We love social media, but it can get pretty expensive to keep up with all of the new apps and platforms. For example, you might have tried out five different social media scheduling tools and still not found one that works well with your workflow. That’s where apps such as Hootsuite and SumoMe come into play. Both of these apps let you create an automated social media schedule that includes posting content, scheduling follow-ups, monitoring engagement and managing a spreadsheet to track your social media campaign’s performance. You can use these apps to schedule social media engagements at the same time as you’re managing other business tasks.
Social media is changing the way we connect with the people in our lives.
