Last year our team reflected on 2019 and shared our predictions for 2020. While we came at it from different angles, we all agreed that TikTok was THE next big thing.
What is TikTok?
If you’re looking for Gen Z — you will find them here vying for their 15 seconds of fame. According to Social Media Today, the app has over 500 million users worldwide and is still growing.
Who’s using TikTok? Primarily teenagers. However, TikTok videos are making their way to Twitter and showing up even more on Instagram Stories.

3. Augmented Reality will become more commonplace
Wide spread adoption of AR has been slow due to limitations related to cost and technology but experts expect that to change in 2020, allowing more brands to increase their AR usage.
