Facebook audience estimates are an important way to learn about the customers, with regards to the insights into segmentation of the following and the frequency and type of their interactions with the bank. As such, they should not be undervalued.

In the era of the digital technologies leading the disruption within traditionally conservative industries, such as financial services, the power of social media cannot be discounted.
