SOMA Award Winners Shine at Event-Full List Here

written by EatOut 10th August 2013

Held last night at the Laico Regency, SOMA Awards fittingly raised a storm in the online KE fraternity. As live tweets and Facebook status updates flooded our timelines with the winners, it really showcased how truly social media has taken a large integral part of our day to day activities.

And it’s not only about talking about our personal lives, social media in kenya has evolved into a platform for saving lives, fighting for civil rights, campaigning for worthy causes, highlighting the plights of the weak in society and even a form of taking care of customer relations. A whooping  2.5 million+ tweets are sent out by Kenyans per day according to the ICT Board.
