  1. The Creator Economy Will Boom: Many platforms have already heavily invested in creator marketplaces and creator tools.
  2. More Streamlined Social Commerce: 2021 saw e-commerce tools pop up on every platform, and it’s gonna get easier from here.

  4. An Emphasis on Mental Health & Burnout Prevention: We all know that breaks are important, but more brands are driving that home.
  5. A Renewed Focus on Accountability & Diversity: The past two years brought reflection on important social issues. 2022 is a time to revisit those promises of change.
  6. Memes, Memes, Memes: Can’t stop. Won’t stop. And they’re only growing thanks to TikTok and Reels memes from audio.
  7. Social Media Posts as Currency: Remember when it was a simple “like for like”? Now you could get a free burger for a TikTok (aka intimate brand awareness).
  8. Rise of the LinkedInfluencer: WFH culture gave LinkedIn a resurgence, and it’s showing.
  9. The “No Filter” Feed Takes Over: We’ve known for years that people want content that keeps it real. Dedicate your feeds to real stuff only.
