The Commission communicates with the public mainly through the website, traditional forms of media and on social media. The website remains the gateway to knowledge about the Commission’s work and a repository of information for use by all, both within our borders and beyond. The media community remains one of the Commission’s key stakeholders as they are the most effective means of informing the public about the Commission’s activities. Social media is one of the fastest growing industries worldwide. The advent of social media is one of the most significant game changers in the realm of communications since the invention of the mobile phone.
When it comes to immediacy, news reporting, marketing, public relations and the art of doing business, social media is king. In the world as we know it, social media has rapidly evolved from a nicety into a necessity. For this reason the Commission is constantly developing its social media platforms in order to: raise awareness about its activities among all stakeholders including the media; to educate, inform and engage with the public; and to inspire dialogue around competition issues in South Africa and beyond.
