According to the study, 58% of respondents checked updates on their social media account multiple times a day, and contrary to what we would have expected, a larger percentage (76%) of the 25 – 34 year olds did so, as compared to the 18 – 24 year olds (50%).
Going by the research, Facebook is by far the most popular social app on mobile.
There’s some good news for advertisers here.
According to the study, majority of respondents (86%) admitted to clicking on ads that appeared on social media. In addition, 89% also said they followed their favorite brands.
