Insights from the Latest Social Platform Performance Benchmarks

Understanding the true performance of your content amidst fluctuating referrals can be a daunting task. Are the dips in engagement a result of your strategy falling short, or are platforms altering their algorithms? The latest Social Media Benchmarks report from Rival IQ sheds light on these questions, offering insights into average engagement rates across major apps.

Based on analysis of over 5 million posts and 10 billion interactions on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, and Twitter, the report delivers industry-specific breakdowns and overall trends. Let’s delve into some key findings:

On Facebook, the average engagement rate for all industries has slightly increased to 0.063%. While sports and certain sectors like influencers, higher education, and alcohol brands maintain strong engagement, even top performers struggle to capture a significant portion of their audience’s attention.

Instagram engagement rates have seen a steady decline, dropping to 0.43% overall. This downward trend, observed over several years, highlights increasing competition and shifting user behaviours driven by Meta’s AI-driven content recommendations.

Formerly known as Twitter, “X” continues to see modest engagement, with an average rate of 0.029%. Despite minimal referral traffic, brands must navigate engagement declines amidst changing platform dynamics.

TikTok, once known for high engagement, has witnessed a significant drop in brand interaction. Average engagement rates have plummeted by more than half, emphasizing the need for brands to adapt to evolving usage patterns and algorithm changes.

While Rival IQ’s report provides valuable insights, success on social platforms ultimately hinges on understanding your audience and driving actionable outcomes. As brands grapple with low engagement rates, it’s essential to reassess key performance indicators and focus on metrics like sales and email sign-ups to determine effectiveness.

It is crucial to reevaluate strategies and embrace evolving consumer preferences. Whether it signifies a shift in audience behaviour or challenges in brand communication, the path to meaningful engagement lies in continuous adaptation and audience-centric approaches.
