1. YouTube launches NFTs

YouTube is launching new creator tools to expand monetization, including allowing creators to sell content as NFTs so fans can “own” videos. The new monetization method is being introduced to help creators build deeper relationships with their fans, and allow new collaborations in ways that weren’t possible before. (Via NBC News)

TikTok drives Amazon beauty sales

For anyone who spends time following top TikTok beauty trends, browsing Amazon’s best seller list will look familiar. The strength of the TikTok-Amazon beauty pipeline is now supported by a new report from Similarweb tracking product sales. Results show that beauty products that went viral on TikTok earned an average of 85.3% month-on-month sales growth on Amazon, surpassing the averages for their respective categories. (Via Glossy)

Social media takes up 70% of mobile usage

Mobile and social media go hand-in-hand—a statement supported by App Annie’s 2022 “State of Mobile” report. The report showed that around 70% of the total time that people spent on their phones had something or the other to do with social media, and much of this growth has been driven by TikTok which has seen an exponential increase in its popularity over the past three to four years for the most part.

Adidas has launched an inclusive sports bra line designed by an all-woman team. And as part of the campaign, the brand tweeted 25 different pairs of breasts in a variety of shapes and sizes instead of sharing photos of the newly engineered sports bras. The line is intended to better reflect people’s different shapes, styles, and preferences and consists of 43 new styles and is available in a more inclusive size range. (Via Glamour
