Social media transformed how we receive and consume news. With over 30-million internet users in South Africa, over 53% of the country’s population, this trend is set to grow.
Digital platforms have become an extension of our daily lives, especially in South Africa where there has been a significant growth in the use of social media. It makes sense then that for political parties to win constituencies at the polls, they need to win the social media race first.
Brand intelligence company, Ornico, today announced the results of the first Africa Brand Index powered by Fuseware. A benchmark that ranks some 500 of Africa’s top brands in South Africa, Nigeria and Kenya according to social media performance, the top five brands monitored and analysed for the month of July 2015, included Supersport in first place, The Expresso Show [second], Idols South Africa [third], Woolworths [fourth] and Vodacom [fifth].
