The Social Quarterly is a series of presentations by Econsultancy, which curate the latest trends, developments and statistics in social media. The reports focus on distilling the most recent data and trends, aiming to provide a guide to what’s happening now in social media and what you should be keeping an eye on.

This quarter’s edition covers social platforms’ efforts to help creators monetise their work, including Snapchat’s launch of Creator Marketplace, the introduction of Creator Shops on Instagram and Twitter’s new Tip Jar.

It also features stories about rocketing year-on-year ad spend across the major social platforms, Facebook announcing a suite of new audio experiences, and Twitter Spaces, which allows users to join live conversations within the app.
