5 Ways to Stay on Trend on Social Media When Something’s Always Happening.
1. Set up news alerts and follow hashtags.
Google alerts and creating streams on twitter allow social media users to see what is trending and keep up with current events that are happening in real time. Getting notifications when certain users post or when a news story breaks allows you to see new and popular information before others do, which will help you keep up with current trends and information.
2. Follow popular influencers and celebrities.
One way to stay on trend is to draw inspiration from users that have huge followings. Obviously, having a large following means they are doing something right, so there is no shame in basing your content on celebrities or influencers.
3. Stay up to date on Instagram’s explore page.
Instagram’s explore page feature is a great way to see what other users are doing and what content is resonating with other users. Instagram’s explore page also gives you related topics when you search a hashtag or profile, so it is an easy and efficient tool that lets you curate unique information on ‘what’s in’ at the moment.
4. Subscribe to relevant blogs and publications.
Depending on what type of content you post, the specific blogs and publications you will want to subscribe to vary. For example, if the majority of your content revolves around beauty and wellness, you are going to want to keep up with blogs or publications that post articles related to the beauty industry instead of something like The New York Times.
5. Listen to podcasts.
Podcasts are a fairly new form of media, however they are incredibly useful for staying on trend. There is basically a podcast for every topic that someone is interested in and podcasts are usually updated weekly with new conversations about the specific topic. Finding a podcast that aligns with your personal brand will allow you to stay up to date with what is happening surrounding that specific content and will allow you to see others’ perspectives on the topic.
