In the first week of the World Cup, Facebook clocked a total of 141 million interactions from people who have either, “liked” or shared World Cup related posts on the network, in addition to 459 million other interactions on the site in connection to the games.
What does it mean? Facebook rules, yes. But it also means is that digital media has made communications global –the moment a message is online, it has the potential to go viral or runs the risk of dying unnoticed.
To ensure successful communications therefore, companies need to adopt a global approach to their strategy and effectively engage and influence media contacts, wherever they are in the world.
