ISTANBUL (TR) - Remote working decisions taken by companies within the scope of social isolation measures caused the need for socialization and communication in digital environments. According to Wearesocial's data, while the rate of social media users increased by 8.7% in the pandemic process, 46% of users preferred to use messaging platforms the most and 47% preferred to spend time on social networks. The spread of the remote working model was effective in the increase of these orientations.

According to Deloitte data, 48.7% of companies in Turkey decided to work from home with all employees. Thus, not only business processes, but also internal dialogues began to be carried out remotely. While chats are moving to WhatsApp groups, social media networks and video calls, digital platforms have become the new address of socializing in business life.

They even want the interfaces of the programs they use to be a social networking site. Social networks, which are not only the favorite of the generation Z in the pandemic process, emerge as the main way to maintain the internal communication in a new, more interactive and lean way. We have developed Social for new generations and experienced employees in the business world that have evolved to the present day by foreseeing the next generation of working styles. With Social, we eliminate the disadvantages that physical distance can cause. By combining team or individual business processes in digital environment, we ensure that the information flow is accurate and fast. Thanks to the rich and expandable content of the social application; internal sharing and business processes; We aim to increase the motivation of the employees to the next level by adding functions such as likes, comments, and hashtag (#) and mention (@), which we are accustomed to using on social media.”
