Of the current estimated 7 billion people on the planet, 6 billion have a cell phone. And one in every four people around the world are on social media.

Managing a Global Social Telecommunications Company
Using HootSuite Social Media Management Solutions, Orange is able to roll out their social strategy across one powerful social relationship platform to new employees, ambassadors and offices around the world in multiple languages. By empowering and educating employees with the same messaging, the brand and user experience is similar from one country and territory to the next. Nothing is lost in translation.
“Whatever the country, whatever the social network, the brand Orange and the way to identify with it is the same. This helps us be global and local at the same time” – David Anglister, Corporate & Digital Communications Director, Orange.
“Since Orange was active on social networks on our various territories, we have been challenged from inside our company. It forced us to evolve and change how we work. In the past, services and departments were working separately on their field, like marketing, customer service, communication, human resources. Now, these departments work together” – Lionel Fumando, Social Media Manager, Orange FT Groupe.
