Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram account for nearly 10% of all internet traffic, demonstrating how important social media has become in modern life. While some may dismiss this as a fad or be concerned about the impact of social media on young people, the truth is that social media will continue to play an important role in many people’s lives—and its value will rise as well. In the next five years, there will be five key changes in social media.
1) Facebook censorship
Facebook is known for not censoring user-generated content, but that may be changing. Any modifications in moderation policy, however, will undoubtedly raise some eyebrows due to Facebook’s size and impact on our culture. Furthermore, it may have an impact on how firms are depicted in Reel Craze media. It’s unclear whether censorship on Facebook will rise; but, as long as social media exists, it will evolve, and corporations will make sure they don’t fall behind.
2) Ads on Instagram
In terms of major shifts, Instagram’s adoption of advertising may be the most significant. Last week, Facebook revealed that advertisers would be able to place advertising on Instagram for the first time. This is a significant step forward for both firms. It will not only provide advertisers with more opportunities to reach out to potential customers.
3) Twitter automated posts
It’s rare for something to become viral because of a brilliant tweet. Because most popular tweets are simple and easy to replicate, automation is about to take off on Twitter. All social media will be different in five years, some of it unrecognizable, but it’s difficult to forecast which platforms will survive and which will not. Instagram postings that are schedule:
Another excellent photo or video will always be around the corner; if you wait too long to share, someone else may get there first (and they probably will). Vine has a lot of short videos: Your 10-second masterpiece isn’t going to share on Twitter; those moving photos are more likely to share on Vine.
4) Bots on Facebook
Facebook is typically thought of as a very human-centric platform, but bots will change that. Bots aren’t quite as clever or functional as people are yet; they can’t hold intricate conversations, for example, but that will change shortly. Don’t expect it to happen overnight, but within five years, you’ll notice a significant change from human to bot involvement. As a result, Reelcraze media as a whole is going to grow in power and influence like never before.
5) Data Privacy Laws
Data protection rules are critical in today’s social media-driven environment. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which was recently implemented, aims to create a consistent standard of data protection standards across Europe, and it may serve as a model for other countries.
If enterprises do not comply with these standards, they could face fines of up to 4% of their annual revenue or €20 million, whichever is greater, starting on May 25, 2018. Users of Facebook should be aware that, despite being design especially for European citizens, GDPR is applicable worldwide due to its extraterritorial reach clause. Businesses must be aware of these rules and make changes to how they manage data in the future.
