The beauty of digital media such as social platforms is its ability to connect people in ways that weren’t possible before. Whether it be social ‘influencers’ or corporate businesses looking to engage with their target audience – the instant nature and powerful influence that digital communications provide can allow users to participate in the things they’re passionate about and connect with like-minded people.
On the other hand, the negative impacts of digital media can be extremely damaging and instantly affect brands or high-profile individuals alike. A prime example of this being the recent abuse aimed towards three of the youngest members of the England Football team after the Euro final.

We believe that digital tools such as social media should only ever be used for GOOD, to bring users together in support of the organisations and people they follow, and to spread positivity… with creativity. ♥
After all, digital channels provide users with the ability to engage with topics of conversation across all walks of life.
Social media has multiple positive impacts on business in terms of brand recognition, customer engagement, online revenue, and customer service. It’s a great tool to keep an eye on your competitors and identify gaps in the market where your products and services can be elevated.
90% of marketers say that social media marketing has increased brand exposure, and 75% say they’ve increased traffic to their website as a result of ongoing social activity.
The majority of us use digital tools personally to communicate with our nearest and dearest on a daily basis, however, this is also a key benefit for businesses of all kinds who can now correspond with suppliers and customers via instant messenger, social media platforms and interactive web forms.
