Users and habits

Let’s take a closer look at social media users and their behaviors to get a complete picture of why social media customer service is so important. There are over 2.85 billion Facebook users, 1 billion Instagram users, and 330 million Twitter users.

Most consumers use social media, with 90.4% of Millennials, 77.5% of Generation X, and 48.2% of Baby Boomers using social media in some form. Our customer support stats indicate that globally, millennials and Gen Z-ers have an average of 8.8 social media accounts per person. Moreover, the average social media user spends 145 minutes (2 hours and 25 minutes) daily on social media.

Apart from interacting with friends and family, 55% use social media to look up information about businesses. In addition, 18% of users use social media as shopping platforms and complete purchases without navigating away from the respective social app.

Social media is also used for customer service by both B2B and B2C industries. However, B2B companies experience more engagement on LinkedIn and less on other channels like Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
