Social media usage - additional information

Apart from the most common role of social media – socializing and entertainment, owing to their wide-spread penetration, social networks are commonly and frequently used for marketing purposes. In fact, marketers worldwide agree that increased exposure is the leading benefit of using social media for marketing purposes. According to 67 percent of professionals in the field, social networks have the power to generate leads and 59 percent believe they help improve sales. All of this translates to growing advertising expenditures on social media. Mobile is by far the strongest channel for social media advertising and mobile social media ad spend in Canada is expected to reach nearly 1.7 billion U.S. dollars by the end of 2024.

In terms of personal use the data indicates that social network user audiences figures are still increasing - in 2023, there will be over 30 million social media users in Canada.
