The Background Welcome to digital Britain and long may it live. According to the Office of National Statis-tics (ONS), in 2013, only a fifth (20%) of UK business turnover was generated by e-commerce sales. At the same time, only 44% of businesses used social media as part of their business operations. A staggering estimated £557 billion was spent via e-commerce in the U.K in 2013 according to ONS and nearly half of this taken up by the few largest (more than 1000 employees) companies. And while these figures suggest that the U.K. is the third highest of any nation in the EU to take up e commerce, there is still clearly a lot of room for growth is this sector. The figures for business social engagement are slightly better but again still present a lot of leeway for increased scope and opportunities especially for SMBs.
Did you know that Facebook has 24 million daily U.K users more than a third of the entire U.K. population (Guardian 4/022014), and 1200 million worldwide? Who really benefits from this? Yes you guessed it Mark Zuckerberg and co.
