Digital media trends 2011: Asia Pacific

The good folks at Edelman have recently released data on the use of social media in the Asia Pacific region for 2011. It is perhaps expected, that Facebook features as the most popular networking platform across most countries. In China, Renren rules whereas Twitter and Cyworld are the most popular in Japan and South Korea respectively. Overall, Facebook seems to be the common denominator across the region. However, it is interesting to note that there is variance in regards to what each community uses the internet to do. For instance, more than 90% of Vietnamese netizens read and write blogs whereas only 50.7% of Indians spend time on the blogosphere, preferring to use the internet for social networking.

In order to delve deeper into these variances, we will be studying one country each week to explore how and why people use social media. We will also look at trends pertaining to that particular region and what this means for companies and brands operating there.

Look out for our upcoming feature on China!

Singapore, 3 September 2010 – Asia’s leading Social Media Monitoring solutions provider, JamiQ, today announced the launch of a new social media reputation management solution on the SingTel myBusiness Cloud Computing portal.
ReputationWatch is an easy-to-use reputation management service designed for small and medium-sized businesses. It is built on JamiQ’s unique social media monitoring technology to allow businesses to track real-time online conversations about their brands in their local market.

Users will also have access to a comprehensive dashboard which provides a trending analysis of conversations, as well as a complete historical archive of past conversations tracked.
“A restaurant could use ReputationWatch to understand which dishes their customers like the best. A bridal boutique could listen for brides-to-be looking for a wedding gown,” said Kelvin Quee, Head of Partnerships at JamiQ.

Which Singapore-based Coupon Startup Gets The Most Buzz?

This post first appeared on YoungUpstarts.

Singapore-Coupon-Startups

Taking the lead from posts on coupon startups in Asia, we at JamiQ embarked on an experiment to understand the buzz taking place on the Singapore social media around these brands.

Trends & Insights

  1. The best tactic for spreading the word on current offers is best done on the real-time social media. In this case, it’s working for Beeconomic who gets most of its mentions out on Twitter.
  2. BrandsFever gets the most coverage in the news and blog coverage. In fact, it is the only coupon startup in our list that gets mentioned across all media types.
  3. It’s a pity Voucherous and SGsavings.com didn’t get any mentions in the week. In today’s fast moving consumer space of coupons and discounts nothing matters more than buzz on the social media.

Mining black gold

Found this quote on B.L. Ochman’s blog and thought it was lovely how The Economist managed to put it so aptly. If raw web sentiment is black gold, then JamiQ is a massive drill.
