Snapchat reveals how coronavirus affects its U.S. users

In just a couple of short weeks, much of American society has shut down. Today, Snapchat released new research about what its U.S. users are saying and where they’re going during the coronavirus pandemic.

While Snapchat would not provide Adweek with hard numbers, it said that users self-report using the service more. Adweek has previously reported spikes in traffic on Reddit, Tumblr and Pinterest due to the coronavirus outbreak forcing more Americans to work from home and search for a community online.

Snapchat’s findings come from a survey of users, aggregated and anonymized location data, and top trends from search, stickers, public and Our Story post captions. The survey and data were collected last week.

Last week, as compared to the week prior, trips to universities and high schools were down 73% and 86%, respectively, while visits to airports (-22%), restaurants and bars (-29%), malls (-32%), movie theaters (-40%), gyms (-41%) music venues (-59%) are all down. Grocery stores have seen an uptick in visitation by 2%. Since Feb. 23, the app Foursquare saw trips to the grocery store increase 19% nationally.

Facebook is experimenting with a Pinterest-like app called Hobbi

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Every now and then, Facebook quietly launches a new app, typically to a small audience, to test the waters a little bit. Last November, it was the meme-making app Whale, and now it’s Hobbi, an iOS app that’s quite similar to Pinterest.

Dubbed the « one stop app for your personal projects, » Hobbi — first unearthed by The Information — Hobbi lets users save photos of « projects you’re working on and the activities you love to do, » organize them into visual collections and share highlights. So yes, exactly like Pinterest.

The app currently has a pretty low rating of 2.1, with most complaints being that the app is unoriginal.

The truth about mobile tech benefits in classrooms

The embrace of mobile technology in higher education appears to now include at least a small majority of college instructors. In a recent survey of instructors conducted by Education Dive Brand Studio and Cengage, 53% of respondents said they used mobile to access e-books and other digital course materials, while 46% used it to research class topics.

Yet there are still plenty of doubters, and two issues seem to worry them the most. Among those reporting they do not use mobile, 43% said they were concerned that not all students would have equal, affordable access to the devices, and 24% said they were concerned it would distract their students too much.

Students have trouble judging the credibility of information online

Stanford education scholars find many students have trouble judging the credibility of online news. Education scholars say youth are duped by sponsored content and don’t always recognize political bias of social messages.

When it comes to evaluating information that flows across social channels or pops up in a Google search, young and otherwise digital-savvy students can easily be duped, finds a new report from researchers at Stanford Graduate School of Education.
The report, released this week by the Stanford History Education Group (SHEG), shows a dismaying inability by students to reason about information they see on the Internet, the authors said. Students, for example, had a hard time distinguishing advertisements from news articles or identifying where information came from.
« Many people assume that because young people are fluent in social media they are equally perceptive about what they find there, » said Professor Sam Wineburg, the lead author of the report and founder of SHEG. « Our work shows the opposite to be true. »
The researchers began their work in January 2015, well before the most recent debates over fake news and its influence on the presidential election.

5 things retailers can learn from Birchbox

Rachel Humphrey, director of PR and strategic partnerships at Birchbox UK shares five ways the subscription retailer has created a whole new way for consumers to buy beauty products both online and in-store.

1. Find your niche

Birchbox was one of the first brands to capitalise on the increasingly popular subscription model of retailing. And when it launched in 2010, less than 2% of beauty was sold online.

How Google AdWords works and how it affects your SEO ?

Google AdWords is an advertising system from Google. It is a paid-for service where the advertiser, that is, the person selling products or services online will pay and then gets to pick the keywords that they would like to appear on Google search. The advertisers have to bid for the keywords, and the more that one is willing to pay for keywords in a certain niche, the higher the likelihood that the keywords will appear in the search results of Google. However, please note that if you are the only bidder for given keywords, then you will be forced to pay the maximum amount per click, irrespective of how much you had bid to pay for every click…

5 metrics to improve your Snapchat marketing

snap-marketing

In this article, you’ll discover five metrics you should focus on to get more out of Snapchat…

#1: Watch Total Opens

The total number, or aggregate, of views across all of your Snapchat stories is called total opens. This metric helps you gauge the success of a two-part strategy: content and growth. If you aren’t receiving as many views of your content as you’d like, it’s time to take a deeper look at these two facets of your Snapchat marketing plan.

Tip: To track your opens and views, you can use a tool like Snaplytics.io.

Content

If users don’t find any value in your snap, they’re unlikely to view the other snaps in your story. Are your snaps interesting, funny, and/or useful? Be honest with yourself and get feedback from others. Every snap you post should deliver value or fulfill a need, whether it’s eliciting a human emotion or delivering information.

One way to boost views is to harness the power of anticipation. Snaps are short forms of content, but they should reflect the basic pillars of storytelling. Each video needs a beginning, middle, and end, and your audience needs a reason to follow through to the end.

Similar principles apply to images, which should take viewers on a journey that encourages them to keep watching and ask, “What’s next?” Unless you work somewhere inherently fun (like Disneyland), snapping about your daily work life may not entice those who are viewing.

Social influencers say it’s really not just about the money

social-influencers-surveyWhen considering teaming up with a brand, social influencers say they consider a variety of factors, but mainly they just want to be sure the brand’s values line up with their own.

About four in ten influencers surveyed cited common values as one of the most important reasons when deciding to partner with a brand, according to influencer marketing automation platform TapInfluence, which polled 268 influencers in North America who had an average reach of 259,000.

Brand recognition and opportunity to grow their following were other factors cited, but fewer respondents mentioned them as being a key reason why they would team up with a brand. For example, only 2.24% of influencers said that it was important for the brand to be well recognized, and 4.9% said the partnership would be a great opportunity for them to grow their following.

Messaging apps are now bigger than social networks

messaging apps surpassing social networksUsers around the world are logging in to messaging apps to not only chat with friends but also to connect with brands, browse merchandise, and watch content. What were once simple services for exchanging messages, pictures, videos, and GIFs have evolved into expansive ecosystems with their own developers, apps, and APIs.

Chat apps boast a number of distinct characteristics that make their audiences particularly appealing to businesses and marketers, including their size, retention and usage rates, and user demographics. The combined user base of the top four chat apps is larger than the combined user base of the top four social networks. Chat apps also have higher retention and usage rates than most mobile apps. Finally, the majority of their users are young, an extremely important demographic for brands, advertisers and publishers.

In a new report from BI Intelligence, we take a close look at the size of the messaging app market, how these apps are changing, and the types of opportunities for monetization that have emerged from the growing audience that uses messaging services daily.
