Chart of the week: Instagram stories blows past Snapchat The company introduced several Snapchat-like features to its social platforms in the past year, hoping to beat Snap at its own game. And while “Messenger Day” and WhatsApp’s new “Status” feature, both heavily inspired by Snapchat Stories, have been received with skepticism so far, “Instagram Stories” is threatening to become a real problem for Snap. According to a recent blog post by Instagram, the platform’s stories feature has passed 200 million daily active users just nine months into its existence. While we have yet to find out how many users Snapchat added since December when 161 million people used the app on a daily basis, it is highly unlikely that Snapchat’s user base will be anywhere near 200 million. In the weeks leading up to Snap’s IPO in early March, many potential investors were alarmed by the fact that Snapchats quarter-over-quarter user growth slowed down significantly in the third and fourth quarter of 2016 – the same time that Instagram rolled out Instagram Stories. If Facebook continues to relentlessly copy Snapchat’s most beloved features, it’s hard to imagine the latter winning against the social media Goliath that is Facebook.
Chart of the week: Instagram and Facebook for B2C, LinkedIn and Twitter for B2B Social media is developing into one of the most important advertising channels on the web. According to the latest report by the Search Engine Marketing Professional Organization (SEMPO), search ads still dominate online, but social media is the fastest growing segment. The 500 marketing professionals asked for the survey have pretty clear preferences when choosing specific platforms to use for either reaching individual consumers or targeting other businesses on social media. The data shows that the marketers prefer LinkedIn and Twitter when trying to reach businesses through paid social media ads. On the other hand, the somewhat more quirky platforms, like Instagram and Facebook, are said to be the best choice to get the message across to the individual consumer.

Chart of the week: Views on 'fake news' 'Fake news' is all over the news. Not just because some observers think that media organisations have a habit of spreading things that don't represent the real world. Also, because the media of course is pretty worried about its standing with the general public, who it (for the most part) tries to inform to the best of its abilities. As our chart shows, most British people taking part in a recent YouGov survey (https://yougov.co.uk/news/2017/03/23/what-counts-fake-news/) think that organisations who deliberately spread things that aren't true are engaged with 'fake news'. On the other hand those organisations that are perceived to be honest but have a clear political viewpoint or agenda cannot be counted as spreading 'fake news'. The lesson to be learnt here is that you shouldn't label news organisations 'fake news' just because they convey views that you dislike. This applies to the general public but should especially be heeded by influential people in the limelight.

Chart of the week: Fake news and how it's perceived “The Trump campaign has confirmed to Hannity.com that Mr. Trump did indeed send his plane to make two trips from North Carolina to Miami, Florida to transport over 200 Gulf War Marines back home.” The story posted in May 2016 was a fake. Trump never sent his plane to bail out the soldiers in 1991, after they had returned home from the first Gulf War. However 49 percent of respondents asked in December 2016 by Ipsos thought this was probably very accurate. Another fake story originated on the satirical website WTOE 5 News in July 2016. The headline read: “Pope Francis Shocks World, Endorses Donald Trump for President, Releases Statement.” This, of course, wasn’t true either. Still, 28 percent of the 3,015 respondents thought this very likely might have been the case. While many people state that they’d be able to spot a fake in the news, actually it seems to be harder than many think.
