Market Opportunity Overview: Online Sharing


Identify what is being shared, how often, engagement levels and popular formats, and the popularity of particular sharing channels; methods people are using to share and store via groupchat; and three smaller companies (not like Facebook and Pinterest) that enable or encourage sharing for the purpose of determining market opportunity. Focus on the U.S., France, and Germany.

Summary of Early Findings in Relation to Goals

The first hour of research involved outlining the project to determine if the requested information is available.

There is information related to what is being shared and most engaged with on social media, though it is not generally specific to regions (such as the U.S., France, and Germany). We can continue to collect this information.

Users are utilizing other methods of group chat and group sharing beyond Facebook and Instagram. One such method (Telegram) was provided above. We can continue to research these methods.

Social media users are also adopting new sharing platforms. We can highlight promising platforms as requested.
