Here at Creative Content Company we offer social media management and training for a wide range of social media platforms, but the three most popular social media platforms for business, and the ones our clients prefer are Twitter, Facebook an Linkedin – so we thought we would put together some facts that we have come across for these three business social media platforms.


Did you know it took 3 years, 2 months and 1 day for the billionth tweet to be uploaded on Twitter, yet today it takes just one week for users to send one billion tweets and this is due to the growth in popularity of Twitter as more people engage with the platform and use it.

A whopping ten tweets per second mention the coffee shop Starbucks; you can imagine how busy their social media manager must be!


Did you know that one in every 13 humans on the planet is on facebook and has an account and more than 30% of users of Facebook with a social media account are in the 35+ year’s age demographic and 71.2% of the users of Facebook are from the USA.


Linkedin is one of the older social media platforms; launching in May 2003 it is now over 14 years old and is present in over 200 countries around the world. It is the most business focused social media platforms of all social media platforms and has over 3 billion different company / brand pages on its platform.

Social made can be a really effective marketing tool for your business; but only when it is done right. If you are unsure where to start when it comes to social media for your business or you don’t think you have the time or skills to engage with people from your business social media profiles then please contact the team at Creative Content Company directly as we would be only too happy to help.
