The Korea Social Network Services Operator Association (KOSOA) held a regional forum on November 11 in Daejeon to share the prospects of the SNS market in the year 2020.

The KOSOA president Unsup Baek said: “There is a saying circling around in this industry: faster fish eats bigger fish. In other words, no matter how big the company is, it is likely to fall if it is dumb in catching up the latest trend. So the forum such as this serves us as a foundation to share the prospects of the trend in coming years.”
