Growth Newsletter #101
Happy new year to everyone! I hope you all had a restful holiday break.
I also hope that you're as excited about 2023 as we are. We have a lot of exciting new things planned this year... But for now they're gonna remain a secret 🤐
This week we cover boosting engagement with comments, propaganda and Bensi, and ChatGPT outlines.
As always, if you don’t find this valuable, you can unsubscribe at the bottom of this email. If you like it, tell your friends to subscribe here. It's the number one way to support the newsie.
News and Links
News you can use:
Platforms have given a sneak peek of things to come in 2023. Here are a few highlights:
- LinkedIn will introduce new job category filters and search options for product listings in its app. That’s right—you can list products on their own LinkedIn page (there are already +90k). Find the complete rundown of upcoming changes here.
- While Meta continues to invest in VR and AR, Instagram will probably focus on visual editing tools and changes to its algorithm for content discovery. Aka more features à la TikTok and other platforms.
- Shopify is going all in on enterprise retail, beginning with its newly launched Commerce Components toolkit. Now big retailers like Mattel can integrate specific Shopify features into their own systems.
- Finally, expect more tech and social media regulation this year. The U.S. government’s ban on TikTok may be the first of more privacy policies aimed at Meta, Microsoft, and Apple, among others.
And I've written a post on how we sold out Un-ignorable in 6 minutes here.
