The Social Pros Podcast launched back in January 2012 and 400 episodes later, we’re still talking about the intriguing and ever-changing world of social media.

A lot has changed since the first episode of the Social Pros Podcast aired. Platforms that once reigned the social kingdom have resigned.

But, what does the future look like for social? In this special 400th episode of the podcast, we review noteworthy strides in social from 2019  and explore six of the top social media trends on the horizon for 2020 and beyond.
