[SatNews] Social media isn't just gossip and photos of lunch, there are serious and solution-solving aspects such as LinkedIn.
Users are finding more ways to play, interact, work and even monetise content through social media. Asia Pacific, presently the world’s largest mobile region, accounts for over half of the globe’s social media users. The social media explosion has not only changed the lives of hyper-connected consumers, it has also caused a rippling effect throughout its ecosystem such as businesses, network infrastructure, communication providers and more.
