Why should your business have a company profile page?

In today’s modern society, social media has become a main occurrence in every day life. The U.K has 47% of its population using face book and half this amount of its users regularly logs in at least once a day. Statistics show that Facebook reached one trillion page views in the month of June 2011, making it the most visited Web site in the world (excluding search engine sites). Twitter is another online social networking and micro blogging service that allows its users to send and read text-based posts of up to 140 characters, informally known as "tweets". With 14% of the U.K actively using this social media it’s steadily increasing to be one of the most popular social networking sites.

Businesses are recently making note of these statistics realising what a fast, easy and cost effective way it is to advertise and reach thousands of people in a short space of time. Companies can regularly advertise their services through use of their online social networking site knowing that its bound to be seen by users.
