In spite of this, few of the traditional giant corporations have adopted this model. The likes of Alibaba, Google, Amazon, Microsoft, Facebook, Tencent and Apple all rule over huge pieces of the pie. They also have tremendous reach especially through social networks emanating from Instagram, We Chat, WhatsApp or YouTube. This gets leveraged by companies for their digital marketing activities.
