Social networks let us learn what our friends are doing and to share experiences online. When you sell event tickets through Facebook, you reach customers in the social space where they spend a significant amount of time. The New York Times reported that users spend nearly one hour of their waking hours on Facebook!
Nearly 2 billion people use Facebook, and 1 billion actively engage with the service every day. No other service reaches an audience that large. And while Facebook shares stats in daily usage, other social sites report in monthly terms. Instagram boasts 700 million monthly users, Twitter connects with 328 million monthly users, and Snapchat trails with 250 million. In sum, Facebook is a huge market.
Savvy venue owners recognize Facebook holds an edge over traditional advertising (TV, radio, newspaper, etc.). For certain types of event demographics like live music and nightclubs, Facebook's reach is actually larger than all traditional advertising combined. ThunderTix's technology helps venues sell event tickets on Facebook easily.
