SmartInsights.com tells us that ten years ago, 7% of the US population used one (or more) social media sites. In the past decade, that figure has jumped to more than 65%. That’s right, well over half of the US population is active on social media.
The largest and most well-known social media site is Facebook, currently with more than 2 billion (yes, with a “B”) active users. Three-quarters of US social media users visit at least once a day.
