The top social channels where consumers interact with brands

Key stat: Facebook was the No. 1 social media channel where US internet users interact with brands in 2023 at 61.5%, according to February 2024 data from Attest. But YouTube is catching up (60.3%), growing 10.4% from 2022.

Beyond the chart:

  • TikTok had the biggest change in how much internet users interacted with brands, increasing by nearly eight percentage points YoY.
  • Brands should have a presence across social media platforms, but content on each platform should depend on the optimal format and audience on the platform.
  • Facebook’s users skew older than YouTube’s, so edgy, experimental content may not work as well on the platform.
  • Interactions with brands went up between 2022 and 2023 on all platforms evaluated except X and Twitch, showing that social media is still a vital place to reach consumers.

  • Evaluate social media strategy.
  • Prioritize social platforms.
