It might be hard to believe, but almost a quarter of the world’s population uses Facebook. That’s a lot of people. While your small business might not be selling to all of them, you can bet that a majority of the customers in your local market are using channels like Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter on a daily basis.
Facebook continues to be the most widely used platform in America, capturing roughly 79% of internet users, with more than three-quarters of those users accessing it daily.
