These retail social media campaigns range from charitable food initiatives to rooftop Instagram stunts that celebrate milestones and exclusive promotions. Whether giving consumers access to limited deals or raising funds for a good cause, these web campaigns illustrate our growing desire for personalized shopping experiences that relate to our love of technology.
