January 20, 2014 | By

Many social networks were launched in the last few years and attained a respectable amount of popularity. They’ve found their place in brands’ social strategies. But, it looks like Facebook is not relinquishing its hold on the market anytime soon… A recent study by Pew Research Center found that Facebook is the dominant network for user engagement followed by LinkedIn and Pinterest. 71% adults had Facebook accounts in 2013 as opposed to 22% and 21% on LinkedIn and Pinterest respectively. What Facebook is also succeeding in is drawing users to login multiple times in a day. While 63% of Facebook users check the site at least once a day, 40% login multiple times. According to the study, 36% adults use only one social network. A whopping 84% of those who use only one major social network said that Facebook is the chosen site.
