Social media and messenger app LINE continues to enjoy wide popularity in Thailand and in this article, we will explain to you why LINE should be part of your digital marketing solutions when setting foot in Thailand.
LINE in Thailand by Numbers
LINE’s roots can be traced back to Japan, when it was first used as an alternative communication tool during emergencies, particularly in disasters.
As it evolved to become an instant messenger app, surprisingly, its popularity rose not only in its home country but also overseas – particularly in Thailand.
Fast forward to nearly a decade since it was introduced to Thai consumers, LINE remains one of the most widely used applications in Thailand.
