The social media giant is a serious marketing tool

Facebook may have started out for college students, but in today’s world, 12 years after its launch, it’s no longer just a novelty platform. It dominates the social media world, with almost 81 percent of Internet users older than 16 having an account.

Latin America leads with 94 percent usage

Internationally, Facebook breaks down users by region. Eighty (80) percent of North Americans have a Facebook account.

In Latin America, it’s much more popular, with 94 percent of people having a Facebook presence. Austin businesses interested in gaining a foothold in Latin American should take note of the popularity of Facebook in Mexico and other Latin American countries.

A facet of everyday life

Facebook has been one of the most relevant websites on the Internet for a number of years. Although it is no longer growing, that’s not to say it’s going to go away.

As it adds more features, Facebook will continue to maintain its grip on the social media landscape, even though it does face some tough competition.

Your business may need to rethink your stance on Facebook and marketing. While the old saying “you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make them drink” may be true, if the horse doesn’t know there’s water, he may be going thirsty. Let your potential customers know your business is ready to provide the services they need. They’ll drink when they’re ready.
