With wireless Internet on a rise and 3G and 4G slowly setting their foot into the nation, broadband companies have been trying to attract consumers as well as retain the existing ones. And there is no denying how important social media has become for the urban masses. There have been varying surveys and researches how social media is having a huge impact on people. In India, the scene is no different. The most recent survey by Kelly services said that Indians feel that social media is gaining a strong foothold in India. In fact, its research also showed employees using social networks for job search as well.
