If 2021 was a year of experimentation and evolution, then 2022 is the year of entertainment. Social video is rapidly taking the lion’s share of people’s time away from other forms of entertainment like TV and dating apps – with the average person spending 100 minutes each day watching online video.

TikTok has ushered in a new era for social entertainment. With over a billion monthly active users and an engagement rate five times higher than other social channels, what came to life as a lockdown craze of viral dance challenges and beauty hacks has transformed into a rich social entertainment destination that taps into subcultures and touches all corners of society.

This new paradigm is where consumers are increasingly spending their time watching, interacting and engaging with short-form video content. And it has inspired social platforms to follow suit – with Instagram Reels (recently expanded to Facebook), YouTube Shorts, Google, LinkedIn, Pinterest all expanding their short-form offerings to ensure they have a part to play in this golden age of social creativity.

Regardless of size or industry sector, brands who want to connect with audiences, boost engagement and increase discoverability should be looking to carve out a presence in short-form video formats and channels too.
