What is the future of social media? If you are a frequent user, we are not quite sure if you have a concrete answer to.  Ready for a ride into the future? Let’s start.

Increased similarity of platforms

Do you feel that social media platforms are quite similar? Like how Snapchat has that augmented filter, and now Facebook and Instagram have it. It seems that each social media platform launched with a unique niche.

  • Facebook can add friends and share photos

  • Twitter shares short and concise content

  • Instagram presents photos

  • Snapchat allows you to capture the special moments

But now they have a mass amount of followers, therefore, these platforms start to follow a standardised model.

Let’s review, shall we?

Snapchat and Instagram

Before Instagram stories, Snapchat was that unpolished, straight in the moment content. It was the place to share with your friends that snap you want to share, and it will be gone after 24 hours. Instagram was the place you share your best photos and captions.

Instagram stories- the fall of Snapchat

The difference between Snapchat and Instagram started to blur when Insta-stories was introduced.

Youtube and Facebook

Now, Youtube also allows users to share in the moment photos and captions like facebook statuses.

Facebook, Google, and Twitter

Facebook is also trying out trending stories and go to places/pages like google and twitter.

 Up and coming cool features?

We can see that these platforms are really putting in the effort to be the first among the many to hold users in. And we believe more cool and exciting functions will be made available. For a starter, here’s some:

  • E-commerce: Platform to sell/buy/promote your products/services
  • Reactions: More options for you to better express yourself
  • Articles based on your activity: More relevant pieces for you
  • Virtual reality- now you see it, now you don’t
  • 360-degree video
  • Improved advertisement engagement

Whenever I run into problems at work or at home, I know I can always count on him to help me with it. Someone that sees my problems as his and his as mine, my happiness as his happiness and his as mine…I think that’s very hard to come by.” ~ Mong (Courtesy of theweddingscope.com)
