SAO PAULO, June 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In addition to being known as the soccer country, Brazil also leads the ranking of countries that most access social networks in the world. According to IBOPE, social networking sites have had the highest percentage in recent times (36%), led by Facebook, with almost 44 million single visitors in December 2012, 22% more than in 2011.
With a high level of influence, social media sites do not only represent something fun for users, as a mini blog with personal posts. They´ve become so successful in the country, that most people use them as important corporate tools.
An IDC study shows that 34% of Brazilians use Facebook for work. Employees access the site at least once a day for business and personal purposes. Advertisers have already realized the power that social media has in leveraging sales and have been investing full swing in this sector.

For him, now is when publishers (content developers) need to organize and prepare a strategic plan. After all, there will also be FIFA Confederations Cup this year, a heated event for televisions, and the social media with marketing initiatives and product and service advertising will extract the benefits of technology.
