Five websites accounted for 20 percent of all search activity during the fourth quarter of 2012, and Facebook sat atop that list, as the subject of 8.48 percent of all searches during the period, according to the latest research from Experian Marketing Services.
Facebook is not very difficult to find, but that didn’t stop the term “Facebook” from finishing atop the list of most searched terms in the U.S. in 2012 for the fourth consecutive year, according to Experian Marketing Services.
The Facebook custom audiences bandwagon has a new passenger, as Experian Marketing Services announced the launch of a new service to create and deliver targeted Facebook advertising via its Alchemy Social ad manager, allowing Experian CheetahMail clients to synch targeted ads on the social network with their email campaigns.
