Vodafone's #LookUp Movement to Keep Relationships Real is Winning Hearts Across India

NewsVoir Monday, 14 August 2017 ()
Millennials today across the world are obsessed with their smartphones and are getting more dependent on their devices and the internet by the day. This has led to a new phenomenon called phubbing which has become rampant in our everyday lives. Phubbing is the term used to describe the habit of snubbing someone in favour of a mobile phone. Knowing or unknowingly most people today choose to look into their phones even as they sit across the table from someone.

“Relationships have moved from being warm and personal to being online and distant. While one can argue that the internet brings the world together, it also is making people grow more apart. As a brand which is a partner to one's relationships, we wanted to take a relevant stand against Phubbing and ask the youth to indulge in real conversations with each other", shares *Hirol Gandhi, EVP Ogilvy India*.

Research and data on India embracing feature phones and social media usage is erupting everywhere. A recent study by Kantar, IMRB and MMA on the feature phone usage in India indicated that people in India spend about 3 hours a day on the phone. “In our Friendship Day film, we chose to showcase the youth and their relationship with the internet and social media, and how they are today sub consciously choosing to ignore the connections that can be made offline while enhancing their connections online. It really is a representation of a lot of us,” shared *Kiran Anthony, ECD Ogilvy India*.

From the launch of the *#LookUp* movement around Valentine’s Day, to building momentum on Father’s Day and now releasing the 3rd story on Friendship Day, the LookUp movement is gathering huge applause. "The LookUp campaign has struck a chord among millions of Indians - with over 50 Million Video Views, 80,000 conversations, almost 260,000 people engaged & industry best Video View Completion rates, the #LookUp movement in only growing from strength to strength, and continues to inspire the Youth & grow brand love for Vodafone", concluded *Siddharth Banerjee, EVP - Marketing, Vodafone India*.
