More than 70 percent of online Americans use Facebook at least weekly, and 20 percent of those have made a purchase after receiving a marketing message on Facebook, according to ExactTarget’s recently released 2012 Channel Preference Survey. The survey of nearly 1,500 consumers found nearly a third (32 percent) of teens (ages 15-17) have made a purchase after receiving a marketing message on Facebook.
