7 Social media trends to watch in 2014

Do you know what the top social media trends are in 2014?

If you answered like-gating Facebook Pages, it may be time to update your social media marketing tactics.

While that is still a good way to get fans to like your Facebook Page, there are many more important social media trends that you want to pay attention to that can help drive a lot more traffic and engagement for your business.

For instance, are you using visual assets such as infographics and memes in your social media marketing efforts?

Visual content is a popular trend.

In addition to using more visual content, another trend for social media is the resurgence of podcasting.

Do you have your own podcast or plan to create one in 2014?

If you started one and never got around to creating content for it, 2014 might be a good time to revisit it.

As far as social networks are concerned, most marketers want to learn more about Google+.

While it is still growing rather slowly, Google+ can impact your search results so this is an important area you’ll want to keep your eye on.

Besides the increase in creating more visual content and shift towards using other social networks besides Facebook, what other social media trends do you need to know about?
