This month’s most interesting trend is an increase in consumer purchases through social media ads. Based on our findings, marketers targeting wealthier consumers may want to consider increasing on their social media investment—especially on Facebook.

Almost 15% of consumers reported purchasing a product via a social media ad in the past month, up 2 percentage points from December. And consumers are still most likely to buy a product via Facebook ads with Pinterest coming in a distant second.

Who is purchasing these products? Age and income are a big factor when it comes to a consumer’s likelihood to purchase. We found that respondents ages 30 and 44 and those with household incomes above $150,000 or below $24,999 are the most likely to buy a product through social media ads.
