MTV Things That Matter 2014 - Have YOUR Say!


With 2014 coming to an end, MTV invites you to reflect and reminisce about some of the things that impacted our personal lives and the lives of people across the globe.

Apart from sharing more and more SELFIES on Facebook and mostly Instagram, we’ve also learnt to share the good things in life. Yes! I’m talking about the WEFIES.

But that is not all, the DIY dance videos to Pharrell Williams’ “Happy,” the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, #OOTD, #TBT, #throwback and a string of numerous trends were continuously spotted throughout this year storming social media. And then, there were things that bound us together and even aided in building perspectives on certain issues for some of us.

In continuing to inspire and evoke youths to have a voice for what they believe in, MTV launched Things That Matter 2014 (TTM) at comprising a list of topics that made the news in 2014. To kick start public votes and conversations, MTV has invited some of their celebrity friends such as Joe Flizzow, SonaOne and well-known personalities such as MTV’s VJ Alan to share the things that resonated with them this year at the Star Buzz page. 

The initial list includes Selfies/Wefies, 2014 FIFA World Cup, Pranks (yes PRANKS!), music streaming services such and...well, you get the picture. Which of them will take top spot on MTV TTM 2014? If you’re wondering what else is making the list, check out and proceed to vote for the Things That Mattered to YOU.
Launched on the 8th of December, the campaign will be live till 4th of January seeking votes from you, you and you! So make sure you get your friends and peers with an opinion to share their thoughts with MTV!
This is the very first pan-regional list that looks back on the year’s pop culture trends, digital advances, major events or social movements which transcended geographical and cultural barriers to influence and have impact young people’s values and lifestyles.
The millennial population stands at 2.5 billion worldwide. MTV had set out previously to create a definitive guide to this generation’s distinctive attitudes, behaviours and aspirations via its The Next Normal study.
