According to a survey, 91 percent of dads say they use Facebook every week; 60 percent use Twitter weekly and 49 percent use Instagram weekly. That’s not really a surprise, especially when mobile gaming becomes a hit but what’s interesting is that parenthood or parenting drives them to spend much of their time on social media. In fact, more than six in 10 fathers surveyed say they currently use social media more than they did before becoming parents. Sixty-five percent say they use social media to share content about their kids, and 45 percent say they use it to follow what their children are doing on social media.
Communities of moms and parents are often the pickiest when it comes to products and services which is why when parenting influencer recommends a product, audience members are more inclined to buy.
Parents have the best convincing skills because of their ability to think logically, behave authoritatively, communicate confidently, and build rapport with other people.
