Social media is a constantly changing landscape. As we continue to see in the 2020s, trends can come and go in an instant. However, some trends seem to last for years at a time (hello, Snapchat). With this in mind, we wanted to take a look ahead at what social media might be like in 2024. We’ve put together our best guesses based on current trends as well as predictions from industry experts. Are they right? Only time will tell! But here are five things that we think will make up the world of social media in 2024:
AI is going to be a huge part of social media in the next decade
AI is already being used in social media, but it’s going to become even more prevalent. AI will help us make better decisions about what we post, who we follow and what we share. It can also help us decide what content we want to see based on our preferences and interests.
Text only posts are growing in popularity
Text only posts are more likely to be shared, liked and commented on. In fact, they’re even more likely to be viewed! Text only posts can include links and hashtags but no images or videos.
Text only posts are also easier for your followers to digest as they don’t need to click on links or watch videos in order for you content to make sense (which is why we recommend using them).
Longer videos are becoming more common
You may not have noticed, but longer videos are becoming more common. This is because of the rise in data speeds and also because of the popularity of live streaming. Users don’t want to wait for their video buffers and thus prefer watching a longer video rather than clicking on another one after 15 seconds or so.
Telegram is the new hot app
Telegram is a messaging app that has been around since 2013. It’s a great alternative to WhatsApp, with more features and less restrictions. Telegram allows you to create groups with up to 100 members and share videos in HD quality. You can also send any type of content such as documents, music files or photos through the app.
TikTok continues to trend and grow
TikTok is an app that allows you to make short videos and share them with your friends. You can customize your video with different filters, music and text overlays, or even add emojis! The app was originally created by musical.ly in 2015 (long before it became TikTok), but it eventually became its own thing after being bought out by ByteDance–the same company who owns Buzzfeed and other popular websites/apps like Douyin in China.
TikTok’s popularity has fluctuated over time; however it still remains one of the most used apps among young people today due to its wide variety of features including:
- Photo editing tools such as stickers and filters;
- Music options such as remixes from popular songs;
- Live streaming capabilities where users can interact with each other while watching videos together;
All in all, there are a lot of exciting things happening in social media right now. The way we interact with each other is changing and becoming more personal than ever before. With the rise of AI and text only posts, it seems like we’re moving towards a future where technology will play an even bigger role in our lives.
