๐Ÿ“Š The State of Social Media Marketing
Sprout Social 2019 Index Report

Social marketers have a good idea which #SocialMedia platforms to use in order to connect with their target audience. Aligned with consumer behaviours, 89% of marketers say they use #Facebook as part of their brandโ€™s social strategy.

While Facebook reigns supreme, itโ€™s worth taking a closer look at which social platforms are most popular among certain age groups. Facebook, for example, is the primary platform where members of Generation X Like or follow brands (77%), but for members of Generation Z, #Instagram takes the cake (69%).

๐Ÿšซ Facebook's Battle with Fake Accounts

Last week, #Facebook published its third Community Standards Enforcement Report which shows the efforts the company is making to curb and remove controversial content. Between October 2018 and March 2019, Facebook said it removed 3.39 billion fake accounts, twice the number detected and removed in the previous six-month period. It is also more than a billion more than the 2.37 billion people who actively use Facebook each month.

Facebook is trying to fight mass account creations using a combination of #AI and human monitoring. Facebook claims that the vast majority of fake accounts disabled within minutes of their creation.

๐Ÿ“ฒ Top Non-Game Apps Worldwide for May 2019 by Downloads

The most downloaded non-game app worldwide for May 2019 was #WhatsApp with more than 64.7 million installs.

#FacebookMessenger was the second most installed non-game app worldwide last month with more than 60.7 million downloads. #Facebook, #TikTok, and #Snapchat made up the rest of the top five most installed non-game apps last month.

Snapchatโ€™s dramatic ranking increase in May came as the result of a popular new gender swap filter added mid-month. The appโ€™s first-time installs increased 2.5x month-over-month from 16.8 million in April to 41.5 million last month, bringing it into the top 10 for overall downloads at No. 5 and making it the most downloaded app on the App Store. It had ranked No. 11 overall and No. 13 on the App Store in April.
