The Social Media comes to its own in Election 2013!

It has been fascinating to see how the Social Media has been used this time for encouraging people not only to come out and vote, but even in a grander scale as a tool for Citizen Reporting.

Encouragement for voting through brands like Espresso, Ginsoy was made apparent through providing incentives.

But what has been even more interesting than this, was the way Entertainment Platforms, like Manhoos Billi, The Rants of a Pakistani Citizen, Comics by Arsalan, just to name a few! Below we present just a few examples.

All of this has presented and wrapped a new demographic with the spirit and hype of the Elections, which honestly was seen more on Social Media than on the Streets this time, considering the apparent Security threats that were everywhere!

Social Media is indeed becoming a very powerful force in Pakistan!
