Philippines is the networking capital of the world and one achievement I supposed for this developing country. So why Filipinos like social media? One thing is that we are a very close knit family. Filipinos likes to be with the relatives and into extended family so using different Social Media accounts is very Filipinos, it’s the way of life. Based on statistics, 100% Filipinos have mobile phones and 30% are using the internet, imagine those who can afford with two or more mobile phones? No wonder that Telecommunication companies like Elabram Systems Group is expanding in the Philippines, the business is here.
As for the fast growing social messaging app WeChat, Filipinos likes freebies and with the internet or data in our mobile phones, Filipinos can use it right away with so many features to enjoy.
WeChat, with a wide range of social features including Live Chat, Video Call, Moments, Voice Chat, Group Chat, Shake, Look Around, Friend Radar, and Sticker Shop, integrates ease and convenience into the whole mobile experience making it more enjoyable and worthwhile. But more than an enhanced way of interacting with our peers, WeChat, through partnerships with brands that have become part of the Filipino lifestyle, is now a gateway to everything that Filipinos love and enjoy.
