Our computers are getting faster and stronger and according to Moore’s law their processing power will double every year from now on. This means that we are experiencing a consistent and ever increasing amount of information, data and images when we are online. We acknowledge some of it – but ignore most. Consequently customised content has become key in today’s marketing.

A recent report from Radium One shed some light on the concept of “Dark Social”. A dominant but seldom discussed force in online sharing.

Last week Twitter launched the new video feature making it possible for users to easily capture and share videos without leaving the app.
The launch comes in a time where the social platform has been struggling to keep up with Facebook-owned and video-enabled Instagram. Furthermore, a new group direct message feature was added, which appears to be an invite for the mobile-focused millennials who seem to prefer group messaging apps such as WhatsApp (another Facebook property via acquisition) as well as Snapchat.

The best performing and most valuable content provides relevance for the user as well as the brand with a great respect for the context. What is happening right now in your local community? And do you take local context into consideration when creating Social Media content for your global brand?
Last week Facebook stated that they once again intend to reduce organic reach by making changes to the news feed algorithm. Earlier this year a study revealed that the organic reach for brands declined to 2-6%. This development, together with the recent statement from Facebook, underlines the importance for content amplification and increases the demand as marketers seek to compensate for the drop in organic reach.
