While social media platforms are continuously evolving, new trends emerge each year to change the way we consume media.
One media format that has been around for a long time but has only recently reached record-breaking download figures is the emergence of podcasts.
Available on a variety of social media platforms like Youtube and Spotify, podcasts are now more popular than ever before.
We delve into the reasons why this rocketing trend has taken off on social media and how you can get on board.
Nowadays, there is a high demand for people to have access to online content wherever they are, whenever they want. Whether it’s music, news, TV, or social media, people now have instant access to the content they enjoy, no matter where they may be.
Unlike Youtube videos or Television shows, podcast users can listen to podcasts without needing to watch the screen, allowing them to listen on walks or when driving home from work.
They are also generally longer forms of content, which makes them more suitable for long car journeys.
Whether you’re a mum juggling with the hectic life of motherhood, looking for insight into other mum’s lives, or you’re a bookworm seeking in-depth discussions of different books, there’s a podcast out there for everyone!
Once you find a podcast suited to you, you will instantly be part of a community of like minded people.
The communities are much closer than those you might experience with a film or television show because podcast owners tend to address comments made by their listeners, which makes for a more personal and intimate listening experience.
Though some might have assumed that podcasts would simply be a fleeting social media trend, statistics suggest that podcasts are here to stay.
The popularity of podcasts is only increasing, and now that streaming giants like Spotify and Youtube have got on board and are offering creators paid subscriptions services, podcasts will only evolve to become even higher quality.
