Ontario: The Most Connected Province
As a marketer, I keep a close eye on the social trends, statistics, successes and fails. When the social stats were released, I was not shocked that Canada, Ontario is particular, is the most connected.
SOCIALscape, a company that measures Canadian social media usage and messaging patterns, came out with the annual report in June of this year.
The snapshot below gives us the percentage of individuals that have a social network account based by Province.
Though I'm not surprised that Facebook remains in top spot as far as popularity, What surprises me is how businesses are not utilizing the platform more in terms of generating leads, traffic and branding.

Almost all Canadians use Social Media
Social Media is Primarily Facebook-based
Social Media reading is mostly passive reading
69% read a social media platform daily and 85% do so at least once a week.
