Last Monday (24th August) Facebook announced that it had reached 1 billion daily users. Or to put it another way, 1 in 7 people across the world used Facebook to connect with friends and family.
The social network service, based in California, was started in 2004 and has shown phenomenal growth. It has allowed people to connect with each other to share news and photos. More latterly it has become a tool for companies to launch products, keep their customers posted about special offers and generally reinforce their brand. Indeed, many organisations include their Facebook URL (internet address) on promotional material, adverts and even email signatures – just to make sure their page can be found and “liked”.
The top five most-liked companies on Facebook are
Coca-Cola 47.6 Million likes
Disney 37.8 Million likes
Converse 32.7 Million likes
Starbucks 31.3 Million likes
Red Bull 29.6 Million likes
There is another angle to the success of Facebook – and that is the profit made by shareholders. Bono, lead singer with U2, has reportedly made nearly £1 billion from shares bought through his investment group Elevation. The pop star bought a 2.3% share in the social media network back in 2009 and this venture has earned him more in the last six years than the whole of his music career.
As a small or medium-sized business owner, the number of “likes” listed above may seem a million miles away, but your Facebook page needs to start somewhere. The benefits of a well-managed page with interesting and relevant posts cannot be underestimated and any way you can connect with potential customers online has to be an advantage.
