Meta has published the second edition of its ‘Culture Rising’ report, which looks at the latest key, emerging trends, based on analysis of millions of conversations across Facebook and Instagram, along with additional insights from a global survey into 20 key shifts.
The 59-page report includes a heap of helpful insights and notes on key developments, which could help marketing teams refine their approach, and maximize the reach and resonance of their campaigns.
