82 Social Media Platform Examples

From Immersive Virtual Fashion Shows to Busty Seatbelt Campaigns

— October 7, 2014 — Marketing
Social media platforms have a wide influence that makes them perfect for introducing a concept or launching a new product.

Social media is a great way of solidifying your brand identity, connecting with your consumers and establishing an online presence. Customers appreciate brands who are active on social media because it is a way to ensure transparency and authenticity.

There are also plenty of ways to get creative with social media. Take, for instance, the way Topshop Unique chose to unveil its Fall 2014 collection. The brand live-streamed the show in an immersive visual experience for a select few customers. Users had the opportunity to become involved by tweeting #topshopgoesvirtual on Instagram. This example showcases how accessible social media can really be.
