Wonder why your social media marketing efforts are not paying off for your brand?
Maybe you should take tuition from that fashionable 20 something student with 100,000 followers on Instagram. Or that “frivolous” YouTuber with his hundreds of thousands of faithful viewers.

This is good news for the naturally introverted and reserved. Like the brilliant Harry Potter actress Emma Watson above.
Do you know that Safer Internet Day fell on 9 February this year?
Yep, that’s the second day of the Lunar New Year. Which was pretty cool because it resulted in a lot more positive posts online – photos of families and friends resplendent in their new clothes, mouth-watering food pics, and lots of good cheer.
