Live Streaming TREND 1: BRINGING THE BRANDS EVEN CLOSER TO THEIR FOLLOWERS THROUGH A VIDEO Social media is already making use of streaming - YouTube Events, Facebook Live (available to big accounts), and Periscope, Meerkat and Blab. Brands are about to catch up, especially with live streaming events such as recent Apple Keynote in September.
Digital Assistants TREND 2: BOTH AN OPPORTUNITY AND THREAT TO YOUR SEARCH MARKETING STRATEGY. Google Now, Cortana, Siri and soon to be launched Facebook's M - those are all examples of intelligent, digital assistants.

Keep an eye on Twitter's Moments, a carefully curated feed of news based on relevant topics; Facebook Instant Articles and Snapchat's Stories.
