New Report Show That Reels are Generating the Most Reach on Instagram

TLDR
  • How significant is video on Instagram, and which formats are driving the most engagement?
Brief

The HypeAuditor team analyzed 77.6 million Instagram posts throughout July 2022 to measure the latest engagement trends, based on format. The data shows that Reels are the best option, at present, for maximizing reach and engagement in the app, yet even amid the rising hype around short-form content, most users are not posting Reels as yet. There’s a reason that Meta is emphasizing Reels so much, and it’s worth considering this in your IG strategy.


The Rise of Virtual Influencers and Their Role in the Metaverse

TLDR
  • By allowing people to interact with one another in immersive, three-dimensional virtual worlds, the metaverse offers an alternative to real-life social interaction. And while it’s still new and evolving, we cannot ignore its potential to disrupt our daily lives.
Brief

It’s no wonder brands are experimenting with virtual influencers to engage their customers. Using computer-generated imagery, they can create avatars with lifelike features and characteristics that partake in the same day-to-day, Instagram-worthy activities as human influencers, reaching similar audiences. Collaborating with virtual influencers also allows brands to maintain complete control over the messaging and creative process from conception to execution. Marketers have the ability to innovate in ways that were never possible.
