It is now safe to say that post Corona pandemic, most of the things around us will never be the same. The lasting impacts of this pandemic can easily be witnessed especially in the terms of shopping, dining outside, and commuting to the workplaces. As we accommodate these lifestyle changes, businesses and brands are re-strategizing the way they communicate to this new normal.

It is essential to make a note of the focused platforms on which the audience interacts and utilize their potential. Here is a list of trending platforms that have replaced traditional ways in the present times.
Unbound growth of Digital Media
Digital media has been a very important tool to keep the world sane amid the pandemic restrictions. Now that everyone is working and studying from home, digital media has proven to be of great assistance. It has served as a multi-purpose platform to cater to the news, entertainment and social requirements, keeping everyone connected to their near and dear ones during the lock-down.
OTT Platforms replacing the usual entertainment-
With India witnessing stringent restrictions due to Coronavirus, theatres and cinema halls have been shut for over six months now. As a result OTT platforms have become extremely popular among the young and the old alike. The OTT platforms have very conveniently replaced the same old Indian soap operas to fast paced engaging stories. Several films due for release on the big-screens were premiered on these platforms amidst the lock-down. With the roaring demand for entertainment, the OTT platforms were on a roll to meet the demands of the audience. Everyone is now totally glued to their phones and laptops, breaking the ceiling in the binge watching trend.
