Effective immediately, Facebook Singapore has picked Singapore-based AKA Asia to handle PR duties, taking over from Weber Shandwick. A team has been put together at AKA to service the client.
This win signals a trend in the region of giant tech corporations choosing to work with small-to-medium sized independent networks. Recently, we reported that The Hofman Agency took over the Twitter account from Golin, and the same agency reportedly works with Twitch as well. Google Singapore, meanwhile, went with local agency Tate Anzur following a review in 2017.
PRWeek Asia has reached out to AKA Asia for more details.
