Reddit Now Has as Many Users as Twitter and Far Higher Engagement Rates. Andrew Hutchinson writing in Social Media Today (042018) notes that Reddit may not be the first social platform that jumps to mind when you think about marketing your brand, but the numbers show that it’s on the rise, and should probably be a more significant consideration that it currently is. That puts the platform on par with Twitter, and well within the top social networks in terms of usage.
For comparison, here’s where each of the major platforms are currently placed on monthly active users:
⦿ Facebook – 2.13 billion
⦿ Instagram – 800 million
⦿ Reddit – 330 million
⦿ Twitter – 330 million
⦿ LinkedIn – 260 million
⦿ Snapchat – 255 million
⦿ Pinterest – 200 million
(Note: LinkedIn and Snapchat don’t report MAU numbers, these stats are based on estimates reported by We Are Social)

What’s more, while Twitter, and to a lesser degree Snapchat, have faced challenges in growing their usage numbers due to increased competition, Reddit has seen its numbers increase by 30% over the last six months, a significant shift. And it’s not just the broad numbers, according to Alexa, Reddit users are also much more active. As per We Are Social’s Simon Kemp (on The Next Web): “The average user spends 15 minutes 47 seconds on Reddit.com each day, compared to just over 11 minutes for visitors to Facebook.com, and 6 minutes 23 seconds on Twitter.com.” Still think Reddit’s too niche to be on your radar? The platform’s also working to help advertisers make better use of that engagement and reach, and while Reddit has long been seen as a risky proposition for advertisers (due to the Reddit community’s resistance to ads), that may be shifting.

In the past year, Reddit has added:
⦿ User profiles to give people, and brands, a definitive on-platform presence to link to
⦿ Conversion tracking and data improvements to better quantify the results of your Reddit ads
⦿ Improved ad campaign structure to maximize ad performance
⦿ An expansion of their Promoted Posts ad option to its mobile app
This week, the platform has also announced the hiring of former Time Inc. President of Digital Jen Wong to take on the role of COO. As explained by Reddit: “Her goals as COO will align closely with her past experience at Time, PopSugar, and AOL: using her media, publisher, advertising, and operations expertise to help us build out our offerings for users, advertisers, and partners; applying her experience building successful digital advertising offerings for internet media giants to our own ads platform; and, through it all, working to grow our business while staying true to the things that make Reddit unique.”

While traditionally Reddit hasn’t been as open to advertising as other platforms, and hasn’t provided the same opportunities, that may be turning – and I can confirm, as a regular user, my social media habits have definitely changed, with Reddit now playing a bigger part. Here’s why…human-based moderation. While algorithms can detect usage patterns and work to show me more of what I like based on my past behavior, which has clearly been effective in boosting engagement on other platforms, Reddit’s human-based moderation process (each subreddit is moderated by volunteer users) may actually be more effective in uncovering content I’m not aware of, improving discovery, while also enabling me to stay in touch with specific subjects. According to latest data from Reddit, the platform now has 330 million monthly active users.

Remember, social media marketing isn’t always the tech. It’s the people.

Today, traditional TV still accounts for the lion’s share of video viewing, but online and mobile are where the growth is. When managed together, TV/digital/mobile hold the potential to drive real impact for advertisers—enabling them to maximize the customers they reach and/or reinforce key messaging across screens. After all, ‘It’s all about screens’.

(Note: LinkedIn and Snapchat don’t report MAU numbers, these stats are based on estimates reported by We Are Social)

What’s more, while Twitter, and to a lesser degree Snapchat, have faced challenges in growing their usage numbers due to increased competition, Reddit has seen its numbers increase by 30% over the last six months, a significant shift. And it’s not just the broad numbers, according to Alexa, Reddit users are also much more active. As per We Are Social’s Simon Kemp (on The Next Web): “The average user spends 15 minutes 47 seconds on Reddit.com each day, compared to just over 11 minutes for visitors to Facebook.com, and 6 minutes 23 seconds on Twitter.com.” Still think Reddit’s too niche to be on your radar? The platform’s also working to help advertisers make better use of that engagement and reach, and while Reddit has long been seen as a risky proposition for advertisers (due to the Reddit community’s resistance to ads), that may be shifting.

In the past year, Reddit has added:
⦿ User profiles to give people, and brands, a definitive on-platform presence to link to
⦿ Conversion tracking and data improvements to better quantify the results of your Reddit ads
⦿ Improved ad campaign structure to maximize ad performance
⦿ An expansion of their Promoted Posts ad option to its mobile app
This week, the platform has also announced the hiring of former Time Inc. President of Digital Jen Wong to take on the role of COO. As explained by Reddit: “Her goals as COO will align closely with her past experience at Time, PopSugar, and AOL: using her media, publisher, advertising, and operations expertise to help us build out our offerings for users, advertisers, and partners; applying her experience building successful digital advertising offerings for internet media giants to our own ads platform; and, through it all, working to grow our business while staying true to the things that make Reddit unique.”

While traditionally Reddit hasn’t been as open to advertising as other platforms, and hasn’t provided the same opportunities, that may be turning – and I can confirm, as a regular user, my social media habits have definitely changed, with Reddit now playing a bigger part. Here’s why…human-based moderation. While algorithms can detect usage patterns and work to show me more of what I like based on my past behavior, which has clearly been effective in boosting engagement on other platforms, Reddit’s human-based moderation process (each subreddit is moderated by volunteer users) may actually be more effective in uncovering content I’m not aware of, improving discovery, while also enabling me to stay in touch with specific subjects. According to latest data from Reddit, the platform now has 330 million monthly active users.

Remember, social media marketing isn’t always the tech. It’s the people.

Today, traditional TV still accounts for the lion’s share of video viewing, but online and mobile are where the growth is. When managed together, TV/digital/mobile hold the potential to drive real impact for advertisers—enabling them to maximize the customers they reach and/or reinforce key messaging across screens. After all, ‘It’s all about screens’.

Reddit Now Has as Many Users as Twitter and Far Higher Engagement Rates. Andrew Hutchinson writing in Social Media Today (042018) notes that Reddit may not be the first social platform that jumps to mind when you think about marketing your brand, but the numbers show that it’s on the rise, and should probably be a more significant consideration that it currently is. That puts the platform on par with Twitter, and well within the top social networks in terms of usage.
For comparison, here’s where each of the major platforms are currently placed on monthly active users:
⦿ Facebook – 2.13 billion
⦿ Instagram – 800 million
⦿ Reddit – 330 million
⦿ Twitter – 330 million
⦿ LinkedIn – 260 million
⦿ Snapchat – 255 million
⦿ Pinterest – 200 million
(Note: LinkedIn and Snapchat don’t report MAU numbers, these stats are based on estimates reported by We Are Social)

What’s more, while Twitter, and to a lesser degree Snapchat, have faced challenges in growing their usage numbers due to increased competition, Reddit has seen its numbers increase by 30% over the last six months, a significant shift. And it’s not just the broad numbers, according to Alexa, Reddit users are also much more active. As per We Are Social’s Simon Kemp (on The Next Web): “The average user spends 15 minutes 47 seconds on Reddit.com each day, compared to just over 11 minutes for visitors to Facebook.com, and 6 minutes 23 seconds on Twitter.com.” Still think Reddit’s too niche to be on your radar? The platform’s also working to help advertisers make better use of that engagement and reach, and while Reddit has long been seen as a risky proposition for advertisers (due to the Reddit community’s resistance to ads), that may be shifting.

In the past year, Reddit has added:
⦿ User profiles to give people, and brands, a definitive on-platform presence to link to
⦿ Conversion tracking and data improvements to better quantify the results of your Reddit ads
⦿ Improved ad campaign structure to maximize ad performance
⦿ An expansion of their Promoted Posts ad option to its mobile app
This week, the platform has also announced the hiring of former Time Inc. President of Digital Jen Wong to take on the role of COO. As explained by Reddit: “Her goals as COO will align closely with her past experience at Time, PopSugar, and AOL: using her media, publisher, advertising, and operations expertise to help us build out our offerings for users, advertisers, and partners; applying her experience building successful digital advertising offerings for internet media giants to our own ads platform; and, through it all, working to grow our business while staying true to the things that make Reddit unique.”

While traditionally Reddit hasn’t been as open to advertising as other platforms, and hasn’t provided the same opportunities, that may be turning – and I can confirm, as a regular user, my social media habits have definitely changed, with Reddit now playing a bigger part. Here’s why…human-based moderation. While algorithms can detect usage patterns and work to show me more of what I like based on my past behavior, which has clearly been effective in boosting engagement on other platforms, Reddit’s human-based moderation process (each subreddit is moderated by volunteer users) may actually be more effective in uncovering content I’m not aware of, improving discovery, while also enabling me to stay in touch with specific subjects. According to latest data from Reddit, the platform now has 330 million monthly active users.

Remember, social media marketing isn’t always the tech. It’s the people.

Today, traditional TV still accounts for the lion’s share of video viewing, but online and mobile are where the growth is. When managed together, TV/digital/mobile hold the potential to drive real impact for advertisers—enabling them to maximize the customers they reach and/or reinforce key messaging across screens. After all, ‘It’s all about screens’.

62% of B2B Marketers See Video As Priority Format. In an article in The Drum by John McCarthy (041618) he noted ‘Two thirds (62%) of B2B marketers polled by LinkedIn believe that video should be the primary platform of any creators. Two Hundred and Two B2B digital marketers were polled in the UK and Ireland between February and March 2018 by Microsoft’s professional social network. 62% saw video as the most important content format. This was followed by email, social media creative, and infographics. More than a quarter (26%) said they are planning to spend more than £300k on video advertising this year, despite the research underlining that cost was indeed often a barrier to entry in the video space. The vast majority of respondents (93%) agreed that video allows B2B brands to embrace creative storytelling opportunities. 62% said it helps build brand awareness and half said they invest in video to promote their goods or services. Many respondents said they believe that their B2B video was effective in generating leads. 77% said they were getting more leads, and 78% said they were of higher quality. It found that the most popular video formats were product videos, how-to videos and explainer videos. 68% of LinkedIn Members, in a separate study form the network, said they would be more likely to watch a B2B video on the site if it was relevant to their job title. To this end, three quarters of respondents put out a call for publishers and platforms to make their video targeting capabilities more effective. Tom Pepper, head of LinkedIn Marketing Solutions UK, said: “Video has become one of the most powerful tools in a B2B marketer’s arsenal as they turn to even more creative formats to engage professional audiences. B2B video has come a long way from the talking head. “But even the perfect video could be rendered useless if it’s not shared with the right audience, in the right place and at the right time. With marketers investing heavily in video this year, it’s time they work seamlessly with publishers to overcome these issues and ensure video continues to deliver growth for brands.” https://cnasophis.wistia.com/medias/hqlzux9on2


Remember, social media marketing isn’t always the tech. It’s the people.

Today, traditional TV still accounts for the lion’s share of video viewing, but online and mobile are where the growth is. When managed together, TV/digital/mobile hold the potential to drive real impact for advertisers—enabling them to maximize the customers they reach and/or reinforce key messaging across screens. After all, ‘It’s all about screens’.
