You missed the LIVE broadcast of Buzz Builders, but you can still watch the video stream above to catch up on what we are predicting for 2014 social media trends. Join us next week for another live broadcast for Buzz Builders!
Happy New Year from BizzyWeb! This week on Buzz Builders we’ll gaze into our crystal ball to make some predictions on what 2014 will bring in social media and online marketing. My big prediction is that some of the big dogs in social media are going to see significant changes.
- Facebook is seeing a big decrease in teenage users, largely because their parents are online and trying to friend them. Also, look also for businesses to have a tougher time marketing on Facebook without using ad dollars.
- Google Plus is going to keep growing and some great new tools are going to pop up that will help finally turn Google into a social media powerhouse. G+ just keeps getting better.
- Twitter is going to focus more and more on sponsored tweets now that it’s a publicly traded company and focused on revenue. Look for some big challenges with Twitter as people tire of all the sponsored tweets and spam.
And finally, video is going to become a big deal this year. Vine and Instagram are battling it out in video sharing, and there’s some really great, and funny, content out there. Companies need to figure out how to use quick videos to generate buzz and interest.
We’ll also spend some time wrapping up the best of 2013 in online marketing, and if you’d like to work through our best content from the past year we have videos featuring all the big news of 2013 available at BizzyWeb.com/buzz-builders. Here’s to a great New Year!
