What’s social media without the trends?
From the Mannequin Challenge that had the entire world on standstill — literally; to the Face App Challenge that showed us our future selves, then to the very nostalgic 10 Year Challenge which also resurfaced towards the end of 2019 as the “Decade Challenge”, social media trends are a staple of our digital world.
For a social media influencer like you, trends are a great way to gain visibility and build awareness for your pages. You can leverage the popularity of the hashtags by creating very engaging content. You can also easily reach a wider audience many of whom may never have known about you. This way, you will also be able to increase your followers.
