Each week, Socially Powerful get together and share industry news and what is inspiring us from The World of Social Media, Advertising, Influencer Marketing, Gaming and more…


1. Instagram promotes original content

Instagram has announced a change in its algorithm that will promote original content. The platform is prioritising original content across the board, focusing less on reposted content. The main emphasis on original content will be for news feed and Reels. The decision comes as the platform wants to support and credit content creators who are creating unique content for the platform rather than those who repost other people’s content.

Meta launches fundraisers in Reels

Users can now add fundraisers to their Reels, providing another avenue to raise awareness for chosen initiatives. The new Reels fundraisers will add a ‘Donate’ button to the bottom of your Reels clip. Users will be able to add fundraising details in the Reels creation process, with fundraiser links remaining active for 30 days. (Via Social Media Today)


3. Netflix ads are coming

Netflix ads are coming

Netflix has announced it will offer cheaper, ad-supported tiers to customers over the next couple of years, in hopes to boost its subscriber base amid tough competition. Netflix recently reported a loss of 200,000 subscribers in the first quarter, so hopes the ad-supported plans will give customers more choice. (Via TechCrunch)
