We asked over 1,000 social media users on which social network they’re more likely to follow a company. While almost half would choose not to follow a brand or company online, when choosing between Twitter and Facebook, the contrast was stark. Over 40 percent of the panel said that they prefer to follow a company on Facebook, with just over 10 percent opting for Twitter.
Key research findings:
- 41.2% of consumers say they are more likely to follow a company on Facebook
- Only 10.5% are more likely to keep up with a company’s updates via Twitter
- 47.3% of the panel say they don’t follow any companies on social media
