Women and Facebook: Brands, Deals, and Friends They Hate
Women use Facebook to keep their friends informed and up-to-date, but they quickly switch off if friends start bragging or sharing too much. A survey from Eversave shows how brands can learn from the way women respond to their friends behaviour and change the way they interact with women.
Facebook is loved for allowing access to friends’ photos and videos (91%), find long-lost friends (76%), and women also say they like to learn about promotions and deals from their favorite brands (75%).
Other findings from Eversave’s online survey of 450 women who use Facebook include:
Most women say they post status updates on Facebook to stay in touch with people and share interesting content:
- 77.6% post updates to keep friends informed
- 64.0% share interesting or funny links and videos
- 44.5% promote social causes
- 24.3% post updates to brag about something
Checking in – a daily habit

Very, very friendly

The survey showed that many women use Facebook to keep up with new offers:
