About this entry

CAPRICHO was able to see the potential of Instagram from the beginning. Unlike others within Brazilian media, CAPRICHO knew how to take advantage of this new technology trend.

CAPRICHO’S Instagram was one part of a larger endeavor for the brand to firmly establish itself in social networks in 2012. At the beginning of the year CAPRICHO restructured and redefined its specific goals for each social network while coherently integrating them all under the CAPRICHO brand.

Today the brand carries an important line of licensed products, and holds an annual event that brings together more than10 thousand girls. CAPRICHO also has an important online presence. With 72 million monthly page views and 5.5 million monthly unique visitors, is the largest teen magazine website in the world. It became synonymous with fashion, beauty, lifestyle trends, and entertainment information for adolescent Brazilian girls. CAPRICHO’s commitment is also reflected in social networks: the brand has almost 2 million fans on Facebook, 1.6 million followers on Twitter, and since 2011 has been building its presence on Instagram. From April 2012 to March 2013, went from 11 thousand to 132 million followers. During that time CAPRICHO worked on its brand identity by bringing the adolescent dream and aesthetic to its image network.
