Description

86% of millennials agree that brands should use chatbots to promote deals, discounts and offers.

As with any innovation, it’s not always immediately clear whether your brand needs to get on board with the tech or how exactly it will integrate with your existing strategy.

So how can you understand and navigate this shift in the social landscape? We’re here to tell you.

Did You Know?

One in five internet users have at least tried purchasing a product on a social site with others forecasting this number to grow to over ¼ by the end of 2017 as brands continue to make the process more seamless.

Facebook has indeed been pushing users to spend more and more time within its Messenger app, even at the cost of visitors to its regular app. But with more than one billion users now using the app, it’s clear that this was a smart move.

Social media use surged by more than 20% in 2016, with Facebook in particular, posting impressive increases, despite already being the world’s most popular social platform for the past decade.

Nearly 2.8 billion people around the world now use social media at least once a month, with more than 91% of them doing so via mobile devices.
