Social media usage in Poland - Statistics & Facts

Social media has become very popular around the world. Each year more and more people use it as an effective way of keeping in touch with relatives, friends, colleagues, brands and products. Poland is no exception. In recent years, more than half of Polish networkers have used social media as a way to communicate.

Although social media is still a source of many threats, such as the FOMO effect, fake news, and inappropriate posts, etc., the Polish internet users agree that social networks are an integral part of their social lives. Invariably the most popular and most engaging social networking platform for Poles is Facebook. In May 2020, nearly 78 percent of Polish Internet users used Facebook. Polish Facebook is constantly expanding, although YouTube is becoming more and more popular. Aside from Facebook, Polish social media consists of Instagram, Snapchat, YouTube, Pinterest, Twitter, LinkedIn and many more. Every social networking site is used by internet users for various purposes and is perceived in a completely different way.

Traditional media still plays a major role in Poland in providing information and developing people’s perceptions and opinions. However, new media (internet, social media, etc.), despite their still secondary role, have become serious competition. As of 2019, over 83 percent of Poles are regular internet users. The importance of new media in Poland is constantly growing. By 2022, the number of monthly active social network users is expected to reach almost 24 million, and this number will grow as long as individuals, companies and organizations use these channels of communication to improve their social and customer relations or marketing strategies.

Due to the growing popularity of social media, companies started to use this tool as a new communication channel to promote their products and brands. Polish Internet users actively searched for information, inspiration, and opinions on social media during their purchasing process.
Increasingly, social networking sites (including LinkedIn, Twitter, etc.) are used during the recruitment process to advertise vacancies or find potential employees, as well as a tool to improve communication within the company, enabling the exchange of opinions and ideas among employees. Every third company in Poland used at least one social network in 2019. Nearly two thirds of companies in the information and communication sector had their own social media profile during this period.

The coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has had a significant impact on many areas in the lives of Poles in 2020. One of them is the use of social media. The quarantine and economy lockdown period has contributed to increased involvement and consumption of media on the Internet. During the pandemic, practically all social media recorded an increase in the number of users. On the other hand, the reduction of interpersonal contacts and social distancing contributed to the rise in the popularity of instant messaging.
