About this time of year, many marketers will be staring to put together their plans for 2015.

To help demonstrate the business case for social media investments amongst your Finance peers, we thought you might like to show them the latest figures for social adoption around APAC.

So, here are the latest numbers for social networking penetration by country, mobile social networking penetration by country, and the percentage of social networking users accessing via mobile devices, for every country in APAC.

Note that these numbers are specifically for 'public' social networks - i.e. they do not include one-to-one chat apps like WhatsApp, WeChat, LINE or Kakaotalk ( if you need chat app numbers, we covered them a couple of days ago in this post)

And if you'd like help putting these numbers to use to generate meaningful ROI, just drop us an email.

Good luck with the planning!
