SxSW 2015: The year of the Meerkat


It’s here: The Year of the Meerkat, our annual SXSW trend report, where we report on our adventures in Austin.

Just when we thought social had matured, SXSW 2015 proved us wrong. Meerkat, the live-streaming upstart introduced “simultaneous togetherness” at SXSW, making social media feel shiny and new again.

The months that followed have seen countless live streams: from Madonna, Jeb, and Shaq to name a few. One of our most popular? The day we opened up our staff meeting to talk SXSW trends with an audience across the world. We’ve since wrapped them up in this SlideShare here for your reading pleasure.  Enjoy (and smile…you just might be on camera).
