Writer Ashley Zeckman’s piece poses the question: “Are marketers actually adapting their social media marketing approach at the rate that they should to be successful?” and then asks Digital Analyst Solis and 12 other social media marketing experts for their predictions for social media as we enter a new decade.

In 2020, social media will experience its worst polarization yet… The last thing we need is more marketing. What people need is a reassuring sense of reprieve, entertainment or genuine engagement.

Be the truth of the customer.”
