Facebook Is a Big Deal- Is Your Business Taking Advantage of It?
According to Facebook stats, there are more than 750 million active users- wow! People are spending over 700 billion minutes per month on Facebook. The average user is connected to 80 community pages, groups and events. Facebook is consuming people’s time. Let’s face it; Facebook is a reoccurring daily activity for a lot of people. Wake up, drink coffee, check Facebook, go to work, check Facebook, take a mid-afternoon break… check Facebook, and of course, you’ve gotta check Facebook at the end of the day for the latest postings.
Does your business have a Facebook page? If you are not currently using Facebook for your business, you’re missing out on a large chunk of the pie. There are more than 70 translations available on Facebook and about 70% of Facebook users are outside the United States- talk about global reach! Think about how many pages you are personally a ‘fan’ of on Facebook. Although you might not return to those pages very often, you do get updates on your newsfeed when new postings or status updates are posted from those pages. Bingo. Businesses should take advantage of this opportunity to connect with, engage and educate fans.
