30th June is celebrated as #SocialMediaDay and brands made the most of it by posting a host of creative content such as images, GIFs, and videos across social media platforms.
A number of brands took to Twitter to thank their followers, promote social causes such as over-exposure to social media and the internet, and many such campaigns.
According to data compiled by www.statista.com, as of the year 2016, there are 172.4 million network users in India and there will be an estimated number of 197 million users by the year 2017. As the numbers convey, social media has evolved into one of the most crucial aspects of brand promotion that businesses cannot fathom to ignore.
No other means of communication offers the reach and targeted exposure that social media platforms offer and on #SocialMediaDay, we encountered a few brand campaigns that really caught our eye.
Some made us laugh and some made us think. Some made us want to share them with you..
