    Enhanced Tags - Creators will be able to make self-designated categories for themselves. When someone tags them in a post or video, not only their username but their category will also appear. This will show the type of work done by each tagged creator.

    Ranking for originality - This aims to boost the visibility of original content on your feed. Although still a work in progress, Mosseri says that content aggregators could see a decrease in reach for posting other people’s content. Replicated posts, different people tagged in uploads, and other factors will be taken into account to measure how likely content is to be unoriginal.

    What does this mean for content creators?

    - The original posts, videos, or reels will get more visibility than republished ones

    - Getting credit for starting trends

    What does this mean for brands?

    - It’s the time to make content that is personal and reflective of your brand’s identity. That is the best way to stay original.

    See who lies behind the screen - put on the Business 2 Human lens

    Biryani - A connection, not just-food

    This Ramadan, India Gate Basmati rice touched hearts with its #EmotionCalledBiryani campaign. Its digital films, set in the backdrops of Hyderabad, Lucknow and Delhi, showcase the culture of the cities. A narrator tells the story of one man in each city - Salman, Salim and Yusuf’s bond with Biryani in each video.


    Focus on the human angle

    The world is moving towards B2H - Business to Human. This form of marketing doesn’t target a defined audience or a business, it targets each individual consumer to make them feel heard and valued. An emotional connection is formed to establish long-lasting relationships.

    In this data-driven world, AI has made marketing easier. But also impersonal to some extent. Bots, ads, and notifications say the same thing to everyone.

    This is why brands need to know and understand the individual stories of their consumers.

    How to start with B2H?

      Understand what consumers really want.

    • #EmotionCalledBiryani did this by understanding that Biryani means special childhood memories, time spent with loved ones, passion and goodwill for people.
    • Provide personalised experiences.

    • Don’t say, “Hi, how are you?” Say, “Hi Eshita, how are you?”. Highlighting the personal stories of people made #EmotionCalledBiryani a success. Viewers could relate to the videos and find themselves in them.
    • Make people feel included.

    • Here, people includes everyone, #EmotionCalledBiryani didn’t talk about the products sold by the brand. Its focus was on showing how people are connected with each other through Biryani.
