Here are a few things we found interesting and insightful for this segment of Marketing Industry Updates. Feel free to share this post with a friend or colleague!
- Instagram is slowly adopting elements and features seen on video-based platforms and is moving away from their traditional feed. Social Media Today announced that Instagram is testing longer videos in stories and new stories-to-reel links as part of broader video integration. Instagram stories up to 60 seconds will no longer be broken up into smaller segments, meaning that Instagram reels can now be fully shared on stories without being cut off.
- With this new way to merge Instagram reels and stories, Influencer Marketing Hub provided a guide to mastering Instagram reels for businesses and creators. In the guide you can find a summary of the features used in creating reels, a breakdown of the Instagram algorithm, content ideas and even a frequently asked questions section.
- Instagram has fully rolled out the ability to collaborate on posts, which means content can be posted on two separate accounts and share comments/likes. This new feature will allow content to be seen by both creators’ audiences simultaneously!
- The power of video content is clear, so how do we make the best content? Twitter shared some video creation and inspiration tips, and in this infographic they provide a brief checklist to help content creators get the most out of their videos. With limited time to grab your audience’s attention and these tips can help you make the most effective clip.
