Introducing the IIE Diploma in Digital Marketing at IIE Rosebank College
The world is online and social. According to stats released in early 2022, there are over 4.5 billion active social media users globally - active, meaning users that frequently use social media platforms. Over half of the total world population, 58%, is on social media. These numbers make sense, given the number of statuses and video uploads on platforms such as TikTok. It is reported that, on average, most active social media users spend two and a half hours on social media daily.
