Sample Facebook Pro Trends

Each Facebook PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online facebook articles, videos and images. Examples:

Covert Campaigning Brands create faux accounts on social platforms to engage consumers Implications - Moving beyond traditional social media engagement, brands are turning to unsuspecting online tactics to add intrigue to the brand-consumer experience. Creating faux profiles and accounts, brands are going undercover to engage with consumers in a more lighthearted yet approachable manner. This covert tactic reflects a need to not only engage with consumers online, but to do so in a way that fosters a real and authentic connection with those involved.

Experiential Social Brands are adding an experiential element to social media Implications - Brands are offering consumers greater incentive to communicate online by making the process of sharing more engaging. Social media is so integrated into many consumers' lives, it's become routine. This shift demonstrates that many consumers relish the opportunity to elevate the social media experience from something mundane to something more memorable.

Branded Milestone Brands step in to create memorable milestone experiences for consumers Implications - Brands today are aiming to feel less like anonymous corporate entities, and more like a comforting presence in consumers' lives. Wanting to further this quality in the consumer-brand relationship, many brands are offering custom online experiences that celebrate events and milestones in consumers' lives. This shift demonstrates that the stronger the brand humanization, the more willing consumers are to share intimate parts of their lives.

Sophisticating Social Brands elevate consumer content into social media art Implications - Using social media, particularly visual platforms, has become nothing short of an art form. Platforms like Instagram are encouraging users to not only share their content, but share it in a way that requires craftiness and creativity. Brands that help people elevate their own content, either by increasing the quality or adding to the level of artistry, foster closer connections with consumers.

Social Vending Vending machines encourage social interaction in exchange for goods Implications - Moving away from paying for goods with money, vending machines are integrating elements of social engagement as an alternative form of payment.

Plus-Size Positivism Consumers search for unique ways to feel good about their bodies Implications - Body acceptance still has a long way to go before it will reach the mainstream, but that hasn't discouraged plus-size consumers from searching for new ways to feel good about themselves. Whether it's enjoying user-generated content on the Internet or supporting body positive brands, consumers are taking a more positive, pleasure-based approach to self-acceptance.

Empowered Chat Female-focused communication apps create a community Implications - It's no secret that women enjoy communicating with their peers, and in an age of instant communication, this has spawned many female-specific messaging services. These services show both a strategic positioning of chat products toward women of all ages, and a sense of community that is vital to gender equality.

Digitized Girl Power The next phase of equality for women focuses on tech and the online sphere Implications - The past few years have seen great progress for women's rights, and true to the times, it seems the next frontier for feminism is in technology. This typically male-dominated industry is seeing more female entrepreneurs and gadgets targeted toward girls. Though not the final step toward equality, digitizing girl power shows a shift in girls' attitudes toward technology.
