How the Social Media Celebrated Mothers Day

With the hype of the elections, Mothers Day almost went unnoticed in Pakistan this year. But if there is one thing you can count on in this day and age is a constant and persistent reminder of any global event through social media. This year was the same as posts invaded our Facebook walls with people putting up quotes and pictures of their mom’s  Also, the interactive pages made sure they paid tribute to mothers worldwide in their own unique and personal styles. From emotional love-filled messages to sarcastic and witty humour  it truly was a day dedicated to mothers on Social media. I just hope everyone took some time and actually wished their mammas for real!

Here are a few examples of the posts we came across today:

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!
