From the 7th Annual Shorty Awards Best Large Agency

Maybe the only thing growing faster than the overall volume of social conversation are the proliferation of specialized social media channels, each requiring a distinctive brand approach. As brands expand their social channels far beyond a Twitter feed and a Facebook page, forward looking brands are seeking integrated social content strategies that work across dozens of social channels. This award honors the best large media agency (over 100 people) that has excelled in helping clients orchestrate the pandemonium into a coherent multi-channel social presence in 2014.
