In 2005, just five percent of American adults used at least one social media platform, according to the Pew Research Center. Today, that number is closer to 70 percent. We’re using Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and other platforms more than ever—not only to connect with each other, but also to share content and stay informed. 

It’s no surprise, then, that social media has become an increasingly important marketing tool in the financial services industry.

  • Actionable tips and advice for staying compliant and secure
