1st place “Raku”
The 1st place was “Raku”.
It is characteristic that influencers who have started their influencer activities since the beginning of this year and have grown rapidly to over 10,000 followers in a short period of time answered that they are “fun”. In addition, it became clear that users and followers’ reactions, the resumption of events, encounters, and the widening of creative range are “fun”.
I have more fun for the first time on Instagram.
It’s fun and makes me feel good when I watch it.
I made it easier for both children and adults to enjoy by posting daily life with children.

more fun events.
Because I had a lot of encounters and it was fun.
It was a lot of fun to start creating and posting letters from this year, so I chose “easy”.

Because there are relationships other than the company and family, and it has become a third place.
The circle of connections with people I met through Instagram has expanded! Because I was able to connect with various people and meet them. There were many events held this year, and I was able to meet people I had connected with on SNS in real life, and I felt a connection. 4th place “difficult”
The 4th place “difficult” is that the number of new followers and reach has been sluggish due to changes in the algorithm, so you can see the background that it was difficult to deal with.
Because I have to make the content considerate of many people, not just my own feelings.
I felt that Instagram was quite sluggish and difficult.
I chose it because the Instagram algorithm has changed, and it has become difficult to gain likes and new followers due to poor reach growth.

SNS will change drastically in 2022!
There is a tendency to use “algorithm changes”, “movies”,
“encounters”, and “expansion of expressions” as reasons.
In addition, “weird” was chosen because “algorithms are changing at a tremendous rate.”
In addition, relatively many “individuals” were also selected, and the reasons for this were “the image that each person was communicating more deeply about themselves” and “the impression that each person is searching for what they want to do as a job”. Users who sympathize with personalized information gathered, and it was seen that a community was formed around influencers.
In 2022, the following three trends were felt by influencers on SNS. While responding flexibly to changes in algorithms, users and influencers have built deep relationships by connecting with many people through SNS and actually meeting at events.
With the evolution of technology, the range of expression has expanded. I felt that the liveliness was returning in real life and on SNS, and while having fun, I formed a personalized community and strengthened mutual interaction with users.
In 2023, in order for companies to utilize SNS and influencers, marketing activities in collaboration with influencers will be essential in line with this trend.
