Saudi Telecom Company (STC) has proven its merit in keeping up with the technological developments in Saudi Arabia. It has become a leader in the telecommunication industry, as evident by its clear influence on social networking. By employing this very influence, it is able to meet the demands of its clients and provide them with exceptional internet and phone services.
STC has successfully established an interactive platform through which it achieved excellence in the world of social networking.
In this regard, Nawaaf S. AlShalani, General Manager of Corporate Communication at STC, said that through its twitter page, STC was able to provide an exciting and interactive platform that enables its customers to express their opinions, exchange ideas, and discuss the latest developments in the world of STC.
Moreover, the platform enriches their knowledge in the cellular phones’ market, offers them IT services, and gets in touch with their world through various educational campaigns such as avoiding use of mobile phones while driving, quitting smoking, celebrating Earth Day, preparing for exams, and returning to school.
AlShalani added that this development comes as part of STC’s efforts to establish itself as an exemplary corporation in the national scene, which commits to its social responsibility and communicates effectively with its clients. This is evident by the recent statistics provided by Socialbakers, one of the leading digital companies in the global scene.
The statistics reported a viewer base of about 86 percent on STC’s facebook page, and an increase in the page’s popularity by about 52 percent in terms of "likes" during the period from December 2011 till June 2012.

These numbers are in comparison with statistics taken from the same period last year.
