The overall trends in social media marketing have indicated several new trends for the upcoming year. With political ads banned on twitter, and discussed in congress, political content has had to evolve to live on several platforms.

- Twitter will make structural changes to its platform to improve user experience on a social level like its monetizable user daily active users mDAU.
- LinkedIn will expand its tools to group work and networking modeling adjacent platforms like Google, Skype, and Slack.
