Very often the choices that we make are influenced heavily by a family member, friend, colleague or any other person or persons whose opinions matter to us. There are numerous instances when we buy varied products and services such as cosmetics, electronic devices, salon services, restaurants, etc. based on someone’s recommendation. In turn, we too turn brand advocates when we rave about the latest movie we watched or the latest perfume we bought. Such instances are many, as by nature, human beings tend to get influenced by what they see and hear from people around them. Such testimonials instigate conversations amongst smaller groups like friends, relatives, peers, and even larger groups through social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. These conversations snowball into wide-spread discussions and consequently create buzz.
