There are more than 644 million websites on the World Wide Web and 3.01 billion active internet users around the world and yet 6% of all internet traffic happens on one website – Facebook.
There are currently almost 1.6 billion active Facebook users per month. This is your best and biggest market place and an opportunity to expand your business to places around the world and into communities you never believed possible, even if you think your product is just local.
936 million users go to Facebook every day and spend at least 55 minutes on the site over a 24 hour time period.
Facebook is the number 1 Smartphone App in the United States because 974 million users log on via their mobile / cell phones.
Facebook is currently crushing YouTube in mobile video minutes watched per month – which is over 4 billion video views per day.
This is a network for you to tap into. This is where you can build a business and a brand people can start to recognise, get to know, like and trust. The average Facebook user has 130 friends so this is an opportunity for people to do a lot of your marketing for you – word-of-mouth marketing is still the most effective form of advertising.
Mark Zuckerberg, the passionate founder of Facebook said, “I want to connect the world”. And you can use the Facebook connection to get yourself, your business or your organisation connected to the largest, most engaging and exciting community in the world.
