Social Media Use in Arabia [Infographic]
Today we present you with an infographic that details the use of social media in the MENA region.
58% of users in the region visit Facebook at least once a week, while 23% visit YouTube and 15% visit Twitter in the same time period.
And while 72% are not aware visual.ly, a data visualizations and infographics creation tool that launched in 2011, 35% still don’t know LinkedIn which launched 9 years ago.
68% visit YouTube for entertainment, while 32% visit LinkedIn for ‘research’. I predict that the 42% that cited Google Plus as their destination for research were actually referring to Google as a search engine and not the social network Google Plus.
56% visit Facebook in search of like-minded people.
The majority of the study respondents, 88%, download content from Facebook, followed by YouTube in 2nd place with 58% who download YT clips.
54% visit social networking sites to find offers & promotions nearby, while 52% do so in the hopes of increasing their networking chances.
