Social media has become one of the most effective tools at holding brands to account because it has enabled consumers to directly & immediately interact with brands. Because consumers can now give quick feedback, fans or those who object to a brand can influence the opinions of complete strangers online. Social media is truly ‘social’ in that it means real-time interaction, where if there is sexism, racism, or otherwise controversial messages in advertising, it will be noticed and ultimately called upon for action by the greater public.

Prime Day Is Coming & Voice Shoppers Will Be Able To Jump The Line
Amazon is trying to encourage more people to try out voice shopping ahead of this year’s Prime Day, Amazon’s own version of a Black Friday sale but only for Prime members.
