Inspirational and motivational commercials and YouTube videos are the newest trends

Hashtags, Instagram, Twitter and Vine are a few of this year's hottest trends.
 
According to Nielsen's Twitter tracking division, ABC Family's "Pretty Little Liars," was the top-tweeted show during the week of June 16-22.
 
Aside from Twitter being the new water cooler for televised shows, hashtags have also become a trend among social media.
 
Recently, the hashtag #ThingsTimHowardCouldSave went viral in honor of USA keeper Tim Howard's incredible performance in the World Cup game against Belgium. 
 
Other hashtags such as #YesAllWomen, a trend campaign started after Elliot Rodger's massive shooting in Santa Barbara, have allowed for online activism.
 
While we are overloaded with trends each day, the newest trends include commercials and YouTube videos that inspire and motivate young girls and women.
 
Pantene's commercial asking the question, "Why are women always apologizing?" has caused many women to realize that they should not be "sorry," but instead "be strong and shine."
 
 
Always, along with Pantene's approach to reach women via ad campaigns, has recently received much attention with their creation of the "Like A Girl" campaign.
 
 
 
Their campaign has sparked a national conversation on female empowerment and self-esteem, according to ABC News.
 
These inspiration and motivational messages for young girls and women do not stop with companies and their commercials though.
 
There have been many YouTube videos showcasing different approaches to inspire and motivate.
 
YouTuber Anna Akana uploaded her video "How to put on your face" last month.
 
Her video addresses what it takes to be beautiful both on the inside and the outside.
 
"The power of make up is incredible, but the power of you is cray cray," writes Akana in the "About" description.
