Middle East using Facebook for Marketing

The middle East and North Africa are becoming important places for the Facebook population. They have both grown 29% since the beginning of 2012. Qatar, Libya, Iraq are the fastest growing social media markets. They are growing at very high rates as well. The biggest groups on Facebook are media groups, commerce and airlines. The companies have found out how to connect with customers online but are not too good with engagement. The facts from SocialBakers shows that there are 21 people registering per minute. The majority of people registering are 18-24 years of age. There are 65% male users and 35% female users. The SocialBakers even posted charts on which media form is using the most advertising and is most responded to. http://mashable.com/2012/12/07/facebook-middle-east-africa/iStock_000018758746Large_MENAmap
