Twitter Launches Live Test of Voice Recordings in DMs
Twitter is now officially testing voice clips in direct messages for their users in India, Brazil, and Japan.
With this update, users will be able to send voice recordings up to 140-seconds long in DMs. Voice clips are thought to be a valuable option for users, since it will open up Twitter to people of differing capacities (and particularly those who are visually impaired). This will also help with language barriers as it is generally easier to speak a language than write it.
Brands can see this as an excellent opportunity to respond to customer queries with fun and informational audio clips.
Facebook Shares New Insights into How to Maximize the Reach of Video Content
If you are a video content creator looking for ways to improve your videos’ engagement and reach, Facebook has come out with some good insights.
Facebook recommends that the likes and interests of your audience are what matters: the algorithm is designed so that audiences are served videos they are interested in. As a result, it’s important to create content that addresses your target audience’s interests.
Another factor to consider is to ensure that your audience is watching your videos without skipping them and interacting with you either by liking, sharing, and commenting. That continued shareability is what then maximizes the reach of your videos, so as a brand, you should focus on creating engaging, shareable video posts.
YouTube Shorts Launching in USA in March
YouTube is planning to launch Shorts in the USA in March 2021. Many users prefer short, engaging videos, and a test conducted in India revealed that Shorts receive more than 3.5 billion daily views.
The setup is very much similar to TikTok: users will be able to create and upload 15 second videos, and many more features and tools will likely be added. Monetization is possible in shorts, so this will be a good opportunity for advertisers to promote their brands and maximize their reach.
The expected update will feature a carousel that will be added to the YouTube homepage as the space for shorts. More updates will be announced as we reach the launch date.
