With social media expanding and becoming an integral part of marketing, businesses are reaching out for new and better ways to utilize the medium. Gebze Center in Turkey developed a system to monitor social media traffic in real-time.

The mall tracked customers responses to their shopping experiences and then engaged with them creating an instant and personal connection.  For instance, after a consumer posted a picture or comment, the shopping center would respond with a thank your or guidance.

The project increased the mall’s social media mentions over 1800 percent from the previous six months.  In addition, a data bank of 50,000 new customers was created for a five month period.
