TikTok

TikTok is one of the fastest-growing social media platforms that enables users to film and share short videos. Similar to Vine, but much more popular, TikTok hasnat stopped growing since its launch. And growth is anything but slow. By smartly utilizing editing, music, and filter features, TikTok users are creating videos that are getting millions of views, and they themselves have millions of followers. The top ten most followed accounts have over 20 million followers and are mostly owned by social media personalities. Now that 2019 is nearing to end, and the new year is coming, social media platforms have a chance to do something different and gain popularity. Hereas what we think will happen in TikTok in 2020.

Lasso

The social network introduced an app which allows users to make short video clips similar to TikToks back in November 2018. A digital white flag was spotted by a reporter from CNN, and users of the app were informed it would be killed on July 10. It is not the first time Facebook has shut down copycat apps. It previously killed apps called Poke and Camera imitations of Snapchat and Instagram after they failed to gain much traction. Facebook later purchased Instagram for 1 billion. Facebook also recently shut down Pinterest clone Hobbi. Shuttering of Lasso come ahead of Instagram's own TikTok-like tool, called Reels. Instagram has found great success copying features of Facebook rivals, including stealing stories and face filters from Snapchat. Reels will allow users to make 15-second video clips set to music and post them to their story. Videos will also have the potential to go viral on Top Reels fee in the apps Explore section.

Vero

Words revolutionary and game-changer are tossed around too much these days. That say, I am going to throw caution to wind here. What is Vero App? It nothing less than the evolution of social media. It both revolutionary and game-changer. Its true social. Vero label itself more social, less media, and with its focus on providing natural and ad-free experience, it is hard to argue with it. Initially launched a couple of years ago by billionaire Ayman Hariri, Movie financier Motaz Nabulsi, and venture capitalist Scott Birnbaum, platform has only started to take off recently. Why exactly is anyones guess, but growing frustration with Instagram and its incredibly unpopular algorithm, combined with growing number of data leaks on other platforms, may have been the catalyst. According to Google Trends, Veros popularity as a search term has been steady albeit not spectacular over the past year. The spike seen above occurred around the time Facebook data breach became big news and people were looking for alternatives. Regardless of why, App shot up from outside top 1500 on App Store, to 566, and finally 1 over the course of just a few days. It has since gone down again, but is seeing faster growth than at any other time in its history. Vero recently passed 3 million downloads. Vero App strives for transparency where other platforms prefer working behind curtain.


Lasso

In an ideal world, marketers would be able to jump at opportunity to explore every new method for reaching customers without detracting from current strategies and courses of action. Of course, that is not reality for most businesses. Marketers have to contend with the overall budget within the organization. However, there is also consideration of other digital marketing efforts outside of social media and non-digital marketing costs. With those limitations in mind, whats best course of action. For most marketers, answer is simple: now isnt time to take action. However, taking time to become aware of these different platforms and stay up-to-date as they develop will help you decide when time is right. This knowledge can drive some secondary research to keep on file until it is ready to move off the backburner. If resources can be reallocate, putting a small budget toward investing in a few new options is worthwhile.

Caffeine

Caffeine allows users to discover shows, stream Live sports, and watch entertainment, gaming, and sports while chatting to other streamers and fans in real-time, wherever you are. Platform, which is considered a competitor to Twitch, has been well received so far. In 2018, Caffeine raised 100 million from 21 Century Fox, which paved the way for new features to increase its reach, and in November last year, it emerged out of two-year beta test. The platform is keen to add more features to grow its userbase by expanding beyond gaming to provide a variety of sports and entertainment to its users. Caffeine already features content from its partners like DreamHack, ESPN, and Disney. Recently, Caffeine has signed top talent and influencers that are on other platforms like YouTube, Twitch, and Instagram, therefore attracting more users and becoming more popular. Just last month, they signed a long-term contract with Drake, allowing users to watch Live rap battles for free and exciting curated content presented by Drake.
