  • Useful stats. However, companies should consider that having a Facebook presence alone will not drive new customers. Jay Baer makes good points on his recorded session, 'When Facebook and Email Share a Cab' http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=st6N0-rgjbI&feature=youtu.be. He explains that while 44% of corporate social marketers believe Facebook is a way to get new customers, that's not Facebook's best and highest use. He says, rightly, people don't randomly search for brands to 'like,' but rather like brands they have existing relationships with. Likes from non-customers works for aspirational [status] brands like Bentley automobiles. A lot more detail on the 30 min recording. https://twitter.com/#!/AnnieintheSun
