1. TikTok will continue to grow bigger

One of the biggest and most important social media platforms to watch is TikTok. This platform has grown massively over the last few years. Today the platform has more than 1 billion users. There is no doubt that this boom will continue and some even say that the platform will exceed Instagram in 2022.

If you’re spending a lot of time on social media, it is always important to protect your accounts. Especially, if you have an active account where you have spent time building your platform. One of the things that you should be aware of is the use of passwords. Use original and unique passwords that aren’t personal. You can also protect your social media accounts with passwordhero.com. It will generate a random and strong password for your social media. If you use the same passwords for all your social media accounts, the risk of being hacked on all of them at the same time is much bigger.

2. Live streaming and motion content

It is no question that video formats are in. People want to see motion, so most trends evolve around some type of motion format. This means that different types of video formats are emerging on pretty much all the social media platforms. Some formats are disappearing, IGTV for example, while other formats, like live streaming, are booming. The trends in 2022 will probably continue to be a mix of fast-paced short videos and longer formats.

3. The trending 90’s and 00’s aesthetics

Everyone who spends a lot of time on social media will probably have noticed the 90’s aesthetics trending all over the world. It seems like this aesthetic will continue to go strong in 2022. At the same time, it looks like the 00’s aesthetics is spreading widely as well – for example the so-called Y2K trends that are all over social media. So, 2022 will probably be a good mix of the 90’s and the 00’s.

The aesthetic of young people on social media is also focused on the irregular and original. People are moving away from the clean and minimalistic look and more into a creative and chaotic aesthetic. If you’re interested in more social media trends to watch in 2022, check out this article.
