It’s not about the games; rather it is concerned with the understanding of how interested actors following a set of rules, react to varying stimuli. In this game of social media, users, both consumers and the brands, are the players. With the help of social media, brands can approach novel customers, establish a loyal audience, and answer to the reviews given by the consumers.
Cooperation and interaction
How each brand makes, an influence on the society is important. Both consumers and brands have different aims, but the way they gain their purpose is the same. All the users struggle in making an influence, and their voices to be heard. Cooperation between the brands and the followers on Instagram is important in achieving their aims and thus winning the social media game. Brands have the responsibility to give users the instruments they require to upgrade their level, and also their influence. Hence, to win the social marketing strategy, brands need to flourish in their messaging and acquire the vocal support and cooperation of a large audience.

Increasing the status within the social media marketing game is important. Creating, sharing, and challenging content can do it. These methods contribute to the value of the conversation, offering a novel concept, promoting, or critically viewing the existing idea, which then enhances the position. In the most social platforms and sites, these factors are incorporated using “likes,” “shares,” and “comments” making the users able to allocate status to others and assess our own quantifiably. Hence, these features tell how famous a brand is in the community, and leverage the users’ wish to accumulate, interest in forming connections, feedback appraisals, the satisfaction of personalization, and pre-occupation with social standing. These factors make the social media rewarding and engaging.
Thus, such perspectives and insights offered by the game theory are used by the brands to win the social media marketing game and to make effective strategies. Enhancing the social status and position establishes win-win circumstances for both the shareholders and consumers.
