Trending in Ramadan; What Do People Tweet about During the Holy Month?
2Presented by The Online Project / Powered by
Introduction
The constant growth of consumption of Social Media platforms
in the Middle East has made it one of the most instrumental
vehicles for brands to connect with their audiences. Online
platforms became an essential part of their marketing strategies
specifically while engaging through bigger campaigns. Such
campaigns are usually done during the Holy month of Ramadan.
Our “Social Media in Ramadan” report in 2013 already
established that the Holy month has a clear effect on people’s
behaviors and daily routines in the Middle East. This reflects
also on consumption habits of social media. Such a surge in
activity levels inspired brands to flock to social media to drive
engagement and increase their share of voice. Brands are
dedicating bigger budgets for social media because they
understand that more users will be online and will be hungry to
engage.
Inthisreportwewanttoexplorewhatexactlyarethoseaudiences
discussing online during the Holy month. The key insights we
want to provide are the main trends and habits we learned from
analyzing this increase in growth and exposure. We decided
to use Twitter as the main focal point for our study since it’s the
most public platform and we can tune into user conversations
and pick up on those trends liberally.
The findings of this report will give brands an insight on the
habitsoftheirconsumers,enablingthemtounderstandwhatare
their interests and the main topics they discuss online. We hope
this will inspire brands to better cater to their desired audiences
by providing valuable, engaging and entertaining content that
speaks the language of their audience.

Recommendations
•	 Not only do people change the entire course of their
daily lives during the Holy month of Ramadan but they
also change their online usage behavior and activity.
Brands and marketers must in return anticipate said
behavioral changes and adapt to them accordingly. Some
of these changes include a shift in posting times and in
customizing their content according to fan interests and
tastes. Capturing the attention of your audience when
they are most online promises a positive ripple effect.
•	 In order to optimize social media best practices for
brand engagement during Ramadan, publishing times
and content mix must be altered according to the shift in
the habits of the fan base across all platforms. By tuning
into these habits, brands and marketers will have a deep
and thorough understanding of their target audience in
regards to their characteristics, preferences, lifestyle, etc.
This in return will ensure greater relevance of content and
will humanize the brand in the eyes of customers thus,
creating a stronger relationship with followers.
•	 It’s important to note that the period in which the World
Cup and Ramadan overlap for two weeks will affect the
users’ behavior for this Ramadan in terms of activity
level timings and topics. Brands should take this into
considerationwhentheychoosetheircontent,depending
on their target audience.

•	 Moreover, investing in post/tweet advertising budgets
duringtheHolymonthallowscontenttoreachitsmaximum
potential. Advertising content that is customized to match
consumers’ interests and that utilizes trending topics will
exceed organic engagement rates.
•	 Go beyond conventions by communicating your message
throughintegratedmarketingcampaigns.Thiswillunleash
a great domino effect as the increase in social media
usage is synchronized with that of TV, radio, and print.
Supporting online campaigns with offline activations will
secure an increase in brand equity. Consequently, this will
keep the conversation going throughout the year.

Methodology
We partnered up with CG imagine+invent* to develop a tool
that tracks tweets from 11 different countries during Ramadan
2013, in which each country has its own sample size. As a result
we were able to extract and gather valuable data, analyze it and
come up with the conclusions.
The tool created retrieved the tweets from each country and a
code was developed to differentiate the data and filter it based
on language, tweet types, tweet content, tweet source (Twitter
client), tweet times and topics.
The sample size for each country is:
Bahrain: 234,151 tweets
Egypt: 235,860 tweets
Iraq: 169,947 tweets
Jordan: 277,031 tweets
KSA: 224,804 tweets
Kuwait: 111,231 tweets
Lebanon: 183,864 tweets
Oman: 116,859 tweets
Palestine: 128,716 tweets
Qatar: 135,902 tweets
UAE: 170,765 tweets

  • 2. Trending in Ramadan; What Do People Tweet about During the Holy Month? 2Presented by The Online Project / Powered by Introduction The constant growth of consumption of Social Media platforms in the Middle East has made it one of the most instrumental vehicles for brands to connect with their audiences. Online platforms became an essential part of their marketing strategies specifically while engaging through bigger campaigns. Such campaigns are usually done during the Holy month of Ramadan. Our “Social Media in Ramadan” report in 2013 already established that the Holy month has a clear effect on people’s behaviors and daily routines in the Middle East. This reflects also on consumption habits of social media. Such a surge in activity levels inspired brands to flock to social media to drive engagement and increase their share of voice. Brands are dedicating bigger budgets for social media because they understand that more users will be online and will be hungry to engage. Inthisreportwewanttoexplorewhatexactlyarethoseaudiences discussing online during the Holy month. The key insights we want to provide are the main trends and habits we learned from analyzing this increase in growth and exposure. We decided to use Twitter as the main focal point for our study since it’s the most public platform and we can tune into user conversations and pick up on those trends liberally. The findings of this report will give brands an insight on the habitsoftheirconsumers,enablingthemtounderstandwhatare their interests and the main topics they discuss online. We hope this will inspire brands to better cater to their desired audiences by providing valuable, engaging and entertaining content that speaks the language of their audience.

Brands and marketers must in return anticipate said behavioral changes and adapt to them accordingly. Some of these changes include a shift in posting times and in customizing their content according to fan interests and tastes. Capturing the attention of your audience when they are most online promises a positive ripple effect. • In order to optimize social media best practices for brand engagement during Ramadan, publishing times and content mix must be altered according to the shift in the habits of the fan base across all platforms. By tuning into these habits, brands and marketers will have a deep and thorough understanding of their target audience in regards to their characteristics, preferences, lifestyle, etc. This in return will ensure greater relevance of content and will humanize the brand in the eyes of customers thus, creating a stronger relationship with followers. • It’s important to note that the period in which the World Cup and Ramadan overlap for two weeks will affect the users’ behavior for this Ramadan in terms of activity level timings and topics.
