Top 5 engaging campaigns: Telecom providers use tech, cricket, silliness

Here is how brands in telecom and digital services engaged their digital communities in the past week, from talking about cricket to asking fans to talk with their mouths full.


Unmetric, a social media intelligence firm focused on brands, uses its analytics platform to uncover the top performing campaigns, content and videos in the APAC region. Unmetric's Engagement Score rates each piece of content from 0 to 1000 depending on the amount of user interactions, which allows easy comparison of content regardless of the number of fans or followers a brand has. For the weekly Engagement Meter feature, Unmetric curates the list to pick the most creative, innovative or unusual initiatives. Here is a roundup of a few of the best in the period of 14 through 20 September.

1. Idea India
Engagement Score - 1,000

In a country obsessed with cricket, even mentioning the sport when there is no match on will garner high engagement. The ‘blast from the past’ photo that Idea mobile posted got a whopping 212,000 likes. This was the most engaging and most liked post in the industry in Asia.

(The post has since been removed.)
