Say goodbye to 2022! A lot of topics and trends made noise last year. Since COVID restrictions have eased, everyone has been going everywhere to make up for the past three years. Let’s have a recap on the trends.

What went down in 2022:

The rise of P-Pop groups! 

K-pop has been on the rise. It grew within Southeast Asia, then the entire world. P-pop or Philippine Pop, had been in the market before. Not only last year, but we have also seen the rise and debut of many P-Pop groups with SB19 as the center. Many achievements from SB19 made them one of the famous groups.


After Elon Musk bought Twitter, numerous people talked about Twitter losing its fame. With the staff and support team of Twitter leaving the company, many have voiced out that Elon Musk should resign as the CEO of Twitter and leave Twitter.

The TikTok Influencers

Different influencers have risen, with TikTok being one of the fastest-growing social media platforms. Depending on your algorithm, many other topics are on the platform. Influencers give their ideas, thoughts, and know-how. In addition, product promotions by influencers help in promoting businesses.

Crypto had the biggest impact last year. Bitcoin and Ethereum went down by over 50% during the year’s first half. Many cryptocurrency companies filed for bankruptcy last year, namely Celsius Network, Three Arrows Capital, Voyager Digital, FTX, FTX.US, and BlockFi. Many cryptocurrencies like Dogecoin and Axie Infinity have gone down and haven’t risen to this date. Recovery is possible but not guaranteed.

Drag Queens

Drag Race Philippines was the talk of the town during the show’s run. Some Filipinos don’t know what Drag Queens do. It became a hot topic with clips posted on social media, the tense small fights, and how the makeup skills, creativity, and performance enthralled the audience.
