All the chat about Dark Social

I’ve seen a lot of conversation on the topic of “dark social” recently, much of it around the work done by Adidas and their Tango Squads.¬†Google Trends suggests that’s correct:

I’ve also spotted various reports on¬†the proportion of “sharing via dark social” – many around the 70% mark. Funnily enough I did a quick straw poll amongst¬†a small (statistically¬†unrepresentative) sample and it came out as 69% people predominantly shared via apps like WhatsApp.

This feels like a topic to feature in 2017 trends post!

What are your thoughts on dark social?
