The rise of digital assistants has presented a growing market that can change the way search queries are performed. According to Google, 1 out of 5 searches already come from voice queries. This changes the search market and we’re expecting to see an even bigger shift towards voice search in 2018.

That been the case the role of regional languages in the social media cannot be undermined. A majority of the Indian rural population is not well versed in English and is most comfortable in their regional tongue. Some of the top brands have realized that if they want a greater audience they must make the foray into regional language on social media. They have realized that close to 60% of the urban population too access content in regional language when compared to English. And that is the reason that Facebook is available in several local languages. According to Google, local language consumption is four times that of English language. According to Mindshift, a social media research agency vernacular websites are growing at a phenomenal rate of 56 % per year when compared to English websites which are growing only at 11%. T o get maximum returns are in regional languages because 45% of online users consume regional language content. According to IMRB if regional languages are made available online then 10.72 million rural population will opt for internet which in turn will increase the reach to 43% of the population. Hence the switch to regional language will usher in an era where there will be more internet consumption, greater growth, more literacy, better health and greater economic boost for the country.. This results in spreading the name of the website which ultimately promotes branding. Native advertising generates higher purchase intention as readers are highly accustomed to these kinds of ads compared to traditional banner ads.
