Top 55 Social Media Ideas in December

From Secure Login Apps to Internet Mentoring Novels

— December 27, 2014 — Social Media
The top December 2014 social media ideas feature a wide range of newly released apps, innovative campaigns and tech-savvy social initiatives. Brands become especially generous during the holiday season to appear more positively in the eyes of consumers.

Many brands are also using social media to empower their clients to give back with them. The #WarmWishes campaign by Tim Hortons promises to give our winter hats to children in need for every tweet with the hashtah #warmwishes.

Similarly, Social Feed is providing meals to malnourished children whenever their ads or content are shared online and on social networks. The holidays are a great time for brands to portray their helpful, caring and compassionate sides.

For more a more in-depth explanation of the top December 2014 social media ideas, check out Trend Hunter's 2014 Social Media Trend Report.
