According to the latest estimates from comScore, Facebook attracted 87.7 million unique visitors in the U S during July, which was 14% higher than in June 2009, moving Facebook from the sixth largest Web media property in the U S to the fifth. Facebook is already the fourth largest site in the world, behind only the combined branded sites that belong to the big three: Google, Microsoft and Yahoo.
If those figures are not enough to illustrate Facebook’s influence, consider these impressive statistics from their website:
– More than 120 million users log on to Facebook at least once each day
– Average user has 120 friends on the site
– More than 5 billion minutes are spent on Facebook each day (worldwide)
– More than 30 million users update their statuses at least once each day
– More than 8 million users become fans of Pages each day
– More than 1 billion pieces of content (links, news stories, blog posts, notes, photos, etc.) shared each week
Casual use of posting online surveys on Facebook to get feedback from friends has become a regular occurrence. Given the reach of Facebook, businesses are now using Facebook surveys more often in order to gather feedback on a wide variety of topics ranging from new business and product ideas to new company names and logos.
Whether your survey is for business or casual, you can reach Facebook users using Zoomerang to easily create your own Facebook surveys and with the Zoomerang Share Results Widget you can share results on your Facebook profile in real-time. Once you have completed your survey analysis consider publishing select key insights on your Facebook profile, your website, and on your blog to engage visitors: the more that your insights are shared publicly, the greater the number of people who will be seeing (and sharing) them.
