The majority of businesses have some kind of presence on Facebook but how many are really utilizing the social media giant for its full potential? Probably a lot less than you think. For those who are missing out, I have to imagine that they fail to understand the benefits that Facebook marketing can bring to their businesses. The numbers are astounding – 1.15 billion users, 700 million daily users, average time per Facebook visit is 20 minutes and 8.3 hours is the average amount of time each user spends per month.
