Facebook trends and changes have been rolling out in abundance over recent years. The majority being in 2020, with its biggest change being the face of its website – a complete and utter redesign!
It seems like there was a love/hate relationship with this, and the platforms audience was split pretty 50/50… This new face came with a heightened focus on groups and events, as the times changed, so did Facebook.
Predicted Facebook Trends of 2021
Now that Facebook has shifted its focus, it’s important to shift your strategy and keep on top of the most recent trends in order to stay relevant.
As well as moving with the current times! For us, this means regular lockdowns. Think working from home, homeschooling youngsters, and filling furloughed time.
Education & Action Trends
Firstly, let’s start with Education & Action. Facebook are predicting that Australias joy for reading is going to increase. It’s no surprise with further restrictions – and more time on available – people are finding new ways to relax and unwind. As the country spends more time at home, the platform reckons they’re ‘finding more time and appreciation for all kinds of books – and reinforcing the country’s community of readers.’

Next, we have Technology in India, Facebook predicts an increase in online connection. With such a huge population almost half the country’s population is still looking to get online. The recent lockdowns have come with an increased need for WIFI, and a stronger connection for those who are online already. With millions out of work, we wouldn’t be surprised if we see a subsequent increase of online businesses making an appearance.
