The social media world is always evolving. Everyday there seems to be a new trick or an app that must be downloaded. There are seminars and tips being launched almost in the masses. Everyone wants to be the first to know how to do the "next big thing" and be the "next big thing."

In this blog I want to share some amazing statistics for 2017 Social Media Marketing that you may or may not know. Everything from Facebook to Instagram is changing daily to meet the needs of it's user base. Did you know that in 2016 Instagram added 100 million new users in only 6 months?!?! That's insane.

If you love your beautiful photos on sites like Instagram and Facebook, hold tight. It seems the tide is changing and though we are a visual nation, people want live action. In 2017 this post predicts video will surpass photo content. It doesn't surprise me. We live for reality t.v. and instant gratification. Combine the two and you have social media gold in accounts that provide live videos and posts daily to it's followers.

Snapchat has always been the go to platform for raw and in the moment footage. In 2017 Snapchat is set to continue it's rank as a power house with Spectacles and Circular Video. It comes back to live video from real people. We want to see the world from someone else's eyes. In this post you can see the growth of many social media platforms over the next year.
