Facebook is one of the most regularly used sites that exist today. Without Facebook, people admit that they do not always feel completely connected to their friends, family, and coworkers. As a result, more people are signing up for a Facebook account each year. What does this indicate to you? It indicates that if your business does not have a Facebook page, you may want to think about having one. Think about all the consumers you are not connecting with on a daily basis by NOT being there. Another case in point: the image below comes from Pingdom, an uptime monitoring service firm. They put together this graphic to illustrate Facebook’s user base into context.
We cannot deny how Facebook has grown since its inception in February 2004. I remember when Facebook first started, I did not think it was going to be anything big—just another MySpace. How wrong was I? Now I am only wondering: what will Facebook do next? How will they continue to remain on top of the Internet charts?
Did you think that Facebook would evolve the way it has? Does your business have a Facebook page? If so, what impact has it had on your business?
