How The History & Evolution Of Blogging Provided The Framework For Sharing Content Online

Creating and sharing content is one of the fundamental pillars of existing online. Before Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, or even MySpace, there were blogs. From the first blog in 1994 to the rise of vlogging, blogging has come a long way and has changed shape many times. Today’s blogs don’t look anything like they did 20 years ago.

Micro-blogging and social media have transformed the landscape, and when bigger companies and publishers began posting online, the landscape of content on the internet shifted permanently. The history of blogs is the history of the internet, and their evolution provided the framework for the online world as we know it today. Let’s look at the evolution of blogging to learn more about where blogging’s been, how it’s changed, and where it’s headed.

These Top 9 Instagram Stories Statistics Show How Much It’s Changed Social Media In Just One Year

UPDATE November 30, 2017 — Instagram Stories continues to grow at an astonishing pace. The feature is now shy of 1.5 years old and shows few signs of slowing down with the addition of features like polling and new stickers and filters. In an effort to keep the top Instagram Stories statistics as accurate and current as possible, we've updated the following statistics to reflect Instagram latest progress.

While Instagram Stories was once doubted by skeptics as a mere Snapchat knockoff, Instagram Stories has quickly become an entity of its own. High adoption numbers and users’ willingness to forget that it was once a clone of Snapchat Stories is making Instagram’s one-year-old feature a success among users, content creators, businesses, and advertisers alike.

We’ve compiled the most recent and relevant Instagram Stories statistics to show how it's shaping the world of social media.

Why Marketers Use Participation Marketing To Create Lasting Relationships With Consumers

There’s more content on the internet than even the most engaged and curious internet user could ever hope to consume. As brands, publishers, social media networks, and creators compete for the attention of audiences, engaging users long-term is becoming more difficult. Participation marketing comes with a simple goal: To build relationships with consumers through ongoing experiences with brands.

As studies show that millennials — who will represent nearly a third of total retail sales by 2020 — value experiences over possessions, it’s important for brands and marketers to consider how they can offer meaningful consumer experiences. Participation marketing is about creating a relationship between brands and their consumers, and that relationship is vital to marketers’ success.

What Are Key Opinion Leaders (KOLs) And What Do They Mean To Brands?

When we talk about influencers and influencer marketing, we often talk about the most recent developments in the world of digital influence. The concept of influencers isn’t new, though. A wide variety of industries and marketers have been using Key Opinion Leaders (KOLs) since well before the social media boom, and today’s social media influencers are opinion leaders who operate in a new digital and mobile arena.

Influencer marketing is a key pillar of many brands’ marketing strategies because it gives marketers an opportunity to introduce a powerful human element to their messaging. According to Nielsen, 92% of consumers say that they’re more likely to trust personal recommendations over ads, making that human element a vital component of a successful campaign. In a digital landscape that’s crowded with advertisements, brands that devise innovative ways to use key opinion leaders will find themselves able to stand out in the eyes of consumers.

As Snapchat Influencers Move On, Is Snapchat Dead As An Influencer Platform?

Since the launch of Instagram Stories in August 2016, Snapchat’s run into stagnating growth, a successful IPO followed by tumbling stock prices, and plenty of criticism about its treatment of creators on the platform. Now lagging far behind Instagram Stories in daily users (DAUs), with just 166 million DAUs to Instagram’s more than 250 million, the question of whether or not Snapchat is dying has become more urgent: Is Snapchat, as an influencer channel, dead?

While it may remain popular with younger users who use it to communicate with friends and follow the influencers who remain on the platform, Mediakix found that top Snapchat influencers are posting 25% more on Instagram Stories. As creators become frustrated with Snapchat’s lack of support for top creators, its uneven performance, and missing tools, it seems likely that Snapchat’s mass exodus to Instagram Stories may well continue.

3 Reasons Why Instagram Stories Are Winning For Marketers

Instagram Stories Aren't Just Slowing Snapchat's Growth — They're Taking Ad Dollars, Too

A year after Instagram Stories launched, it’s seen some outstanding results. Snapchat may once have ruled the ephemeral messaging game, but Instagram Stories halted Snapchat’s growth and stole the thunder from a highly anticipated IPO that fell flat under the weight of unmet expectations. Where Snapchat added just 8 million daily active users, increasing from 158 million to 166 million between Q4 2016 and Q1 2017, Instagram’s Stories feature alone sees more than 250 million daily users.

Instagram Stories isn’t just a hit with users, though — marketers are winning big with Instagram Stories, too. It may once have been the home of square photos but with a bevy of new features, Instagram's become a marketing power house and the clear choice for advertisers. Here’s why Instagram Stories is coming out on top for marketers who are looking to reach large audiences through ephemeral messaging.

How Will Sponsored Content On Amazon Spark Affect The Influencer Marketing Landscape?

Last week, Amazon unveiled a new feature called Spark — a feed within its mobile app that allows users to post photos and tag products available for purchase on Amazon. On some level, this photo posting and tagging is a more native, more transparent version of what users are already seeing on Instagram. With the rapid rise of influencer marketing on the platform, sponsored content has seen a major uptick, which means more posts with products and brands attached.

Amazon Spark is like an Instagram feed without the pretense of social sharing, and plenty of influencers are already using the feature to post photos and highlight products from sponsoring brands. Here’s what you need to know about Amazon Spark and the influencers who are creating sponsored content for it.
