Getting to know new social platforms and even using them for your digital marketing campaigns is a differential that can make you stand out.
Although traditional social platforms are essential for a successful strategy, it is interesting to follow the new trends in this sector and stay up to date before everyone else.
With that in mind, DUNA’s Digital Marketing Agency prepared this content with the main new social platforms of the moment.
In recent years, we have experienced a huge social media growth, with platforms like Instagram, Facebook and Twitter dominating the digital scene.
Although this growth has brought numerous advantages to content marketing strategies, it is impossible to deny that the increasing participation of individuals has also brought with it increasing competition.
After all, in a scenario where everyone is looking for their space, it is increasingly challenging to stand out in more “traditional” social platforms.
However, the search for alternatives should not be seen as a simple escape, but as an opportunity to explore new approaches to reach and engage the target audience.
It is in this context that new social platforms emerge, platforms that are attracting the attention and curiosity of an audience eager for something different.
In this ever-evolving scenario, it would not be daring to consider that any of these new platforms could become the next sensation, as we have witnessed with TikTok.
Therefore, it is essential to be up-to-date and aware of the latest trends in new social platforms, in order not only to keep pace with change, but also to anticipate it.

TikTok is not so recent anymore, but it’s always good to remember its success, and how a new platform on the market can stand out.
TikTok is a platform for sharing short videos. With its distinctive feature of allowing videos of 15 or 60 seconds, and now even 3 minutes, the platform has many possibilities.
Here, creativity finds its place, with cinematic filters, immersive subtitles, captivating soundtracks, animated gifs and the ability to perform precise cuts, all at your disposal.
Just like on Instagram and Twitter platforms, you can follow the profiles of other users, immersing yourself in an ecosystem of interactions that include likes, comments and even sharing through apps like WhatsApp.
TikTok’s growth can be attributed in large part to its unrivaled ability to catalyze virality.
User-proposed challenges, captivating choreography, public figure impersonations, and thought-provoking skits all have a unique power to inspire and invite others to join in the fun.
This appeal is especially effective among young audiences, who are attracted to the platform through the promise of shareable and engaging experiences.
Twitch is a live video platform that has grown a lot during the pandemic. Here, streamers, as they are known, do lives interacting with the public, playing games, chatting, and creating a series of other contents.

Quora, in a way, resembles the late Yahoo Answers, however, its focus is directed towards professional and specialized questions.
