Well the simple answer is YES, but if you ask me as a digital marketer then the answer might not be that simple. When we look at Facebook from a marketer’s point of view then we can see a lot more than the average user who’s just browsing this social media for entertainment.
Facebook is the largest social media platform when it comes to providing its users the ability to connect with each other, sharing life events, creating collaborations, gathering a community or just entertainment. The users who are visiting this platform daily are more interested in knowing about the happenings around their friend circle, school, state, country or the world. The intent of the users here is not precisely “shopping”, but as per the latest observations, it has been found that these users are slowly becoming used to browsing brand products along with consuming the regular social media content.
