News on social media marketing and what’s new

Hello everyone, and welcome to the second post of this week. Guess what? Another news post for today. But this time is going to be a different topic. I would like to have a variety of topics, but primarily things within the niche and things I talk about on the blog. You might think this is new to the blog, but I try to make it around the place. And I’m going to share news on social media marketing.

Something any marketer would like to know. Some of the news on this post surprises me as well. And I can’t wait for you to read them. This would be my second attempt at sharing information. Hopefully, it will be better than the first one, haha. Don’t forget to share it with others if you find it interesting, and let us know your thoughts.

News on social media marketing and what’s new

I chose this time to be about social media because even bloggers want to know marketing news. Since it’s something we do, we use many social media platforms to promote our content. Content creators will have this news as the main thing to learn more about platforms. So, this would be the perfect topic for today’s news post.

Just like the previous post, aka my first attempt. What I will mention below is something helpful. And not like any political news. I’m trying to help others to get information about what is happening. So, all the posts will be about something you want to know. I can’t turn my blog into a news blog, but I will share as many news articles as possible.

Q: Will you keep going into the news topics more?

A: It’s a good question, and the answer is yes. But I will make sure every news article will be something helpful. Sharing news about stuff people find interesting instead of depressing. And also more about marketing trends.

Briefly, what will be on today’s news on social media marketing

  • Learn what Doritos did on social media
  • Report about one of the biggest social media platforms “Facebook.”
  • What did “Tailwind” release for social media?
  • A new contender for social media marketing on the rise

Well, here is some of the news, but that’s not it. There is one that will be shared first on the list. So, if you are interested in knowing about this news on social media marketing, you would want to keep reading, and I will share some details and my thoughts about each one as well. Today’s topic is social marketing to inform others about the latest news trends.

‘Ad Free’ Version of Twitter Blue is Coming, new Twitter leader says

I honestly don’t know how things are going with Elon Musk, but not sure if it’s going well. He just announced on his Twitter that there would be Basic blue which has a few ads. And a higher tier blue mark with no ads sometime next year. This is one of the latest social media news.

It looks like he wants to make it like other social media, which use ads to allow users to upgrade. But personally, social media shouldn’t have something like that. However, we will see how this goes with the rest of the world. Seeing the ads on Twitter doesn’t affect my use of the platform. What do you think of this?

Assuming it will also be higher in price, there is no word on how much it will be. Now the blue mark is $8. As we knew previously Elon Musk made $11 on iOS. So, I think the higher “Ad-free” tier would be a higher price. Something interesting to see because there will be people who will also buy that. You can read about this news on Twitter blue is coming.

Could “BeReal” become the new contender for social media marketing

Also, on today’s news, something surprises me. Something that I didn’t know about as well. Perhaps you haven’t heard of the “BeReal,” but it’s been since 2020. It’s an app similar to other social media, and it got more attraction in 2022. It is getting up to over 10 million daily users, compared to only a year ago, which was just 10,000.

The company is working on getting more brands to be on the app. And expect results to be the same as other social media. Well, some of you may not know how this app works. It’s like Snapchat, but it gives the user a 2-minute timeframe to capture the moment and share it with others. Maybe you didn’t notice, but the name “itself” says to be accurate.

Some good news about this app is that it became the number one free app on the Apple store. And it got featured as well. This means this could be on the rise to becoming a contender. I’m excited to see how this will work and what it will become years later. You can read more about this on new social media marketing.

The report says that Facebook remains the top social media platform for APAC marketers.

Another interesting one is on the marketing news. Something about one of the social media platforms, “Facebook.” The report says that Facebook remains the top social media for APAC marketers. That makes the platform 87% of all other social media platforms. And in case you have no idea what the word “APAC” means. It is the short word for Asia-Pacific, encompassing East Asia, South Asia, Southeast Asia, and Oceania. Drilling down one level further, APAC includes more than 20 countries.

You would be surprised who is competing with Facebook in this. Well, let me tell you… It’s LinkedIn 81% and Instagram 81%. There is a chart for this. You can find more about it on top social media platforms if interested in learning about social media marketing in APAC. Maybe it can help you to adjust your marketing plans or something.

That’s not everything, but also social listing is on the rise with 42%. Another 15% are planning to do so in 2023. It is interesting to see that marketing differs from country to country. I’m curious how everything performs and works in APAC with owning a blog and businesses. Let me know if you find this exciting news to you.
