Trending Topics On Social Media
To predict the trending topics for the new season is tricky, but you can pretty safely start with hot issues of the past year and watch their growth. At the end of last year, Facebook has released a report with key trends of 2018, which are most probably being even more significant in 2019. From that, those are topics related to summer you should keep in mind!
Summer is about traveling and exploring new places. When it comes to that, the trend is about adventure. Rather than luxury all-inclusive holidays, nature and wilderness are arising its popularity. Altogether with the trend of low cost traveling the top three items on Facebook trending list is glamping, via ferrata and zip lines.
The West Coast lifestyle is spreading far away from the borders of California. The trend of spending time in the sand and sun is rising up as more and more people come here to vacation or for work. In connection with that, the trend is on activities such as beach soccer, paddleboarding, and wakesurfing.
Eco And Sustainability
One of the most significant topics across the world is eco-consciousness, spreading across categories like beauty, fashion, food, or travel. This goes to many topics such as freeganism (reducing one’s consumption), sustainable fashion, recyclable food containers, and straws, and even the commerce follow “reduce, reuse and recycle”.
Health Before Weight
Summer is also the bikini time, which for many means weeks of dieting and losing weight. But the positive trend shows that people are much more careful about their health rather than scale, look for specific ingredients helping them strengthen their body and soul. For example, those are eucalyptus, kimchi, or turmeric.
The health perspective comes even in the field of “mama’s recipes,” and soul food – the traditional ingredients are partly substituted by healthier alternatives. Even though people want to eat (and share online) delicious, great-looking dishes, they also care about nutrition. That means fattier meat is often replaced by veggie or legumes, the usage of sugar went down and rather the brown.
Multicultural ways are mixing the whole bunch of traditions, tastes, and appearances into one shared trend. The ethnic influence in this summer, in case of food, comes from India – Calabaza (West Indian pumpkin), Mexico – Caldo de Pollo (chicken soup), and Greek – Tiropita (egg-and-cheese dish).
In the matter of fashion, African-ish trend was established and seems to continue in the next months. Specifically, those are prints in the pattern of Monstera deliciosa, snakeskin, or zebra. Furthermore, in the world of cosmetics, Korean beauty is taking uncompromisingly over the field.
