10 Social media trends that will shape 2018

If 2016 was the year of Instagram and Snapchat, and 2017 gave us “Fake News” accounts and a tweeting president, 2018 promises to be even more exciting! And while there is nothing certain about social media progress, it plays an increasingly important part of our daily lives and businesses and bloggers are at a point where they have to use it efficiently if they want to grow. Therefore, having an idea of what 2018 will bring in social media trends may be interesting, but also important for the businesses and people that make a living from it.


  • 1. Augmented Reality: Iphone X and 8 users can already turn themselves into a living emoji and use apps like Ikea Place to see how products would look in their home without first buying the FLÄRDFULL chair and assembling it wrong! Expect more AR to come with Snapchat and Instagram supposedly to release filters that allow the user to take selfies with 3D versions of their friends and celebrities.


In conclusion, 2018 will be a big year for social media as it enters into a new stage that isn’t all about posting pictures of salad and getting likes. The focus is shifting towards live, un-tailored content and more personal methods of online interaction.
