The total number of Facebook pages has topped the 15 million mark, up from 13 million in December, Facebook Director of Small Business Dan Levy said at Borrell Associates’ Local Online Advertising Conference in New York Tuesday.
Earlier this week, Borrell Associates released data suggesting that Facebook generates 74 percent of their advertising revenue through local businesses. More specifically, $229.47 million of a total advertising revenue estimate of $310.069 will come from local advertisers. How accurate is this estimate? Who knows, but considering that the company is projecting Twitter to be generating $288.061 million in ad revenue this year, there’s a good chance the numbers are way off.
