‘More Together’ is the marketing campaign for the Facebook App, to share stories that celebrate and highlight the power of connections
Facebook today launched a new consumer marketing campaign in India, ‘More Together’, to showcase how people across the country can do more together by harnessing the power of their connections on the platform. The campaign marks many firsts for the company. India is the first country in the Asia Pacific region where such a campaign is being rolled out. It is also the first time that Facebook is rolling out a high decibel campaign of this stature in India.
Consumer marketing is a new strategic area of focus for Facebook and is part of the company’s priority of transparently communicating the role its services play in the world. ‘More Together’ is the marketing campaign for the Facebook App, to share stories that celebrate and highlight the power of connections. It is built on the core belief that people can do more together, than alone.
Ajit Mohan, Vice President and Managing Director, Facebook India, comments, “India is at the heart of Facebook and one of our focus areas this year is to tell the exciting story of a service that is deeply embedded in the fabric of India. While at the company level we remain focussed on building trust, we want to showcase the many ways that Facebook is intertwined in the lives of Indians - from connecting with loved ones, to growing businesses and supporting local communities, to finding ways to come together to learn and share and celebrate. I could not be more excited that we are telling our story – it is a story that is lived by people across the country every day.”
It will have multiple campaigns going on air, across India, over the next few weeks, in 8 languages. This is a 360-degree campaign that will span mediums like Digital, Out of Home, Radio & Cinema. In the words of Agnello Dias, Co-Founder, Taproot Dentsu and Creative Chairperson, Dentsu Aegis Network India, says, “Taproot Dentsu is delighted to develop such an important campaign for one of the most loved services in the country. The world of Facebook represents a canvas of connections that’s huge, vibrant and full of serendipitous outcomes and surprises.
The out-of-home ads have been created by Bharat Sikka and feature people like Sanjyot Keer from Your Food Lab, Kamiya Jani from Curly Tales, Madhura Bachal from Madhuras Recipe, Paula McGlynn and Sarang Sathaye from BhaDiPa, Chhavi Mittal and Mohit Hussein from SIT, Varun Pruthi and Maithili Thakur, who leveraged the power of Facebook to fuel their aspirations
