Social search emphasizes the impact of influencers on search rankings and the importance of adapting content strategies. With many consumers finding new brands and products via ads on social media, brand marketers need to pay attention. A recent report from GWI highlights the substantial increase in social media platforms’ role in brand exploration. In 2023, 31% of social media users in the US said they typically find out about new brands and products via ads on social media. This represents a 40% increase from those who did in 2020.

Particularly among younger demographics like Gen Z, 40% of users prefer platforms like TikTok and Instagram for search over traditional engines like Google. With this shift in consumer search behavior, it’s vital for brands to adapt content strategies.
