New Socialbakers data shows that Fans click on Facebook ads nearly 3 times as much as non-Fans.
Yes, organic reach has declined. But when posts are promoted to Fans instead of non-Fans, marketers get more out of their money. Far more.
At each turn, ads targeted to Fans outperformed those targeted only to non-Fans. They cost roughly the same per impression, but engagement metrics like cost-per-click and click-through rate make it clear just how much more valuable Fan targeting really is.
While targeting some ads to non-Fans will always be necessary for expanding your audience, promoting engaging content to Fans remains the most valuable action for Facebook marketers.

Oh, Canada! This land of maple syrup, Molson and very few people (considering its size) is the second largest country in the world. Canada is a mix of world-class cities like Vancouver and Montreal, and an impressive list of natural wonders including the Canadian Rockies, Niagara Falls and the Bay of Fundy.
But amid these cosmopolitan centres and stunning sites are Canada’s eccentricities. For instance, did you know $1 and $2 Canadian coins are called loonies and toonies? Or, that more than half of the world’s polar bear population calls Canada home? Not to mention, the country has the most doughnut shops per capita. (Doughnut road trip, anyone?)

Snapchat has a reputation for fast growth, and considering that it currently has 100 million daily active users, that’s certainly not a stretch. But how does it compare to the growth of other popular social platforms?
Launched in September 2011, Snapchat is now just under 4 years old. For the sake of comparison, we decided to take a look at how other major networks – Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram – were doing 4 years in.

This makes the fact that their number of monthly active users was almost 75% of what Snapchat’s is today seem pretty impressive.
