Social Media has turned out to be a real business driver in Asia. Be it a national or an international business, an online presence and a media-specific strategy is a must to reach the Asian audience, as well as have promising e-commerce revenues.
Even though Facebook makes up for one of the most popular networks in other regions of Asia, in terms of Monthly Active Users (MAU), Chinese WeChat scores the primary position. Other networks such as Sina Weibo are also still highly active and very strong especially for the fashion business. In Japan, on the other hand, LINE is more prominent, with many added features to drive brands' businesses. However, many brands also prefer to open up local pages on international networks such as Facebook and Twitter to manage their local Asian audience through local content, exclusive offerings and celebrity endorsements.
