Top 60 Social Media Trends in November

From Miniature Media Mags to Social Media Reaction Lamps

— November 25, 2017 — Social Media
In the immortal words of Blanche DuBois, "I have always depended on the kindness of strangers," and the November 2017 social media trends in many ways conform to the same tenet. After all, social media connects people across the internet — while these people aren't always strangers to one another, a kind and accepting online environment is an aspiration that all of society can strive for and hopefully achieve.

One great example of social media that fosters an inclusive online atmosphere is 'PINC,' a platform that encourages community conversations. The app is designed to be the opposite of an anonymous forum board; every user's account is tied to their offline selves, and the conversations are structured around singular, coherent discussion points to ensure that every user stays on track.
