Presently there is a growing interest among those who are disillusioned with social media in indisputably the oldest networked platform.
The inbox perhaps is more attractive than newsfeed.
Why This Shift Towards Newsletters?
It is part of a larger transformation we are witnessing now.
For years people were fixated to open and connected world posting status updates, photos of our visits to exotic places and similar experiences on social networks like Facebook and Twitter.
The shift is now towards private sharing. Even Facebook after recognizing this need is focusing on private conversations rather than public broadcasting.
It is not surprising that Facebook has integrated Instagram, WhatsApp and Messenger so that users can reach out to each other privately. It is also evident in the re-emergence of smaller private niche Groups being promoted more on Facebook, one of the only areas of growth Facebook has had for years now.
What Does This Mean For Businesses?
The answer is straightforward. Newsletters can be made a more reliable means for enhancing readership.
This has become all the more necessary after Facebook decided to move away from promoting videos from businesses. The social media giant has deemphasized content from publishers and brands.
