At the end of the last decade, Find Your Influence (FYI) surveyed nearly 550 social media influencers to understand their views on the evolution of social media platforms as they approached 2020.
Using FYI’s proprietary survey technology, the survey was sent to a sample set of influencers within the FYI network. The survey was distributed to active U.S.-based social media influencers and was conducted online between December 27-29, 2019.
“We were really interested in better understanding what influencers were feeling about established platforms, changes to established platforms as well as rising platforms,” said Cristine Vieira, President and co-founder of Find Your Influence. “Influencers are the fuel to the influencer marketing engine and coming to understand their habits and concerns can in turn help Find Your Influence aid brands in the development of successful influencer marketing campaigns.”
