(PRWEB UK) 28 November 2012
Recently released social media statistics have revealed that 85% of internet users have Facebook accounts and 49% are on Twitter.
They also revealed that 90% of retail companies have acquired a customer through Facebook and that 80% of people prefer to get coupons, promo and discounts from brands in social media.
Brands are gaining fans at an average rate of 9% per month and 67% of Twitter users are more likely to buy from brands that they follow.
The statistics have highlighted the importance of social media for brands, as the average time spent using social media increases while email use is decreasing.
