From Progressive Telecom Ads to Anti-Bullying Emojis

These socially conscious tech campaigns range from progressive telecom commercials to anti-bullying emojis that harness the power of mobile communication for a greater good. While major tech brands can often get a bad rep for being environmentally harmful or for contributing to social issues like cyber bullying, these examples of socially conscious tech campaigns aim to change this perception.

While Twitter has upgraded its social channel with a political donation feature that helps users support their favorite candidates, Claro -- one of Central America's largest telecommunications companies -- helped fund a low-income community with its latest commercial. The ad provided female community members with small business funding, changing a rural Central American community's means of earning an income.

Furthermore, companies like Facebook and Google hope to end cyber bullying by engaging in social initiatives that discourage inequality and mistreatment of those on the web, while brands like Apple are participating in environmental programs that hope to preserve the health of our planet.
