Social Media Trends in 2022 to Look Out For

From keeping videos short to greater eCommerce integrations, social networks have become the basis of thriving businesses and online communities across the world. Here are the top social media trends we’ve been noticing popping up.

  1. Short-form videos
  2. Streamlined online shops
  3. Memes
  4. Mental health tips
  5. Rise of personal LinkedIn profiles

1) Short-form videos

Thanks to the rise of TikTok and Instagram reels, videos under 60 seconds long with a vertical format are gaining popularity. Not only is this type of content super easy to create, but for users, has become an engaging way to interact with profiles.

2) Streamlined online shops

With the new online shop capabilities of both Facebook and Instagram, small businesses are finding a way to get their products noticed. From product discovery, click-to-purchase, payment integrations, and post-purchase support, social commerce has become the norm for businesses on social media. With just a few clicks, these streamlined online shops are changing the way we shop online and from the looks of it, it’s here to stay.

3) Memes

Everybody loves to laugh and relate. Time and time again, we’ve seen industry-related memes and gifs shared across social media platforms. For social media content creators, finding or creating custom meme content that their target audience will find funny is key.

4) Mental health tips

In a recent study by Vibely, 90% of content creators have experienced burnout and 71% of users have considered quitting social media. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, social media has become the go-to resource for users. Unfortunately, this has had an impact on our mental health and how we interact with others outside of our phones. In 2022, there will be even more conversation surrounding the emphasization of mindfulness and mental health.

5) Rise of personal LinkedIn profiles

According to Later, influencers are finding a new social media channel for creating their own content. LinkedIn has begun to garner success on personal profiles for the ability to spread ideas, opinions, and content to those in their network. For small businesses, having their own employees post their own content is the best way to capitalize on this trend and steer traction back to the business.
