New York, NY- Facebook is having a good week; the social media marketing giant just became a publically traded stock, which will earn approximately $102.4 billion for investors and founders Mark Zuckerberg and Eduardo Saverin. And a report from Experian Hitwise showed that 10 percent of all page visits in the U.S. go to Facebook, emphasizing their importance in legal internet marketing.
Facebook has experienced consistent growth since its inception. In April, 1.6 billion people visited the site with an average of 229 million visitors every day.
Ahead of their IPO, Facebook submitted its S-1 filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, showing they have 900 million users worldwide, and continues to show significant growth in the U.S. and Canada.
Legal internet marketing experts utilize social media such as Facebook and Google + in their SEO and online advertising campaign because of their extensive reach. Thousands of people can be reached simply through sharing information and this can help attract new clientele.
When Facebook and other social media users share content on the platform it also helps with SEO efforts. Frequently shared content can help increase a corporation’s or small businesses’ websites, allowing them to reach and garner the trust of consumers.
Even though, some in the tech industry think that social media is just a fad, the very fact that Facebook has grown to be a billion dollar business with millions of users, shows that it has value to users and internet marketing experts and will likely be around for many years to come.
