    We expect US social commerce sales to rise by 35.8% in 2021 to $36.62 billion. That’s only a slight deceleration in growth from 2020, when sales surged by 38.9% thanks to the pandemic-driven boom in ecommerce, increased social media consumption, and brands continuing to leverage these platforms to sell directly to consumers.

    However, social media and messaging users were relatively modest in the number of services they engaged with—compared with internet users in Brazil or Mexico, for example. In Canada, more than 6 in 10 respondents said they used no more than six platforms in these categories. By contrast, consumption of music, podcasts, and other digital audio content was rather subdued, except in younger age groups.

In most Latin American and many Asia-Pacific countries, internet users spent more than 3 hours each day on social networking and messaging. That was also true in Egypt, South Africa, and Turkey. Across most of Europe, though, social media occupied fewer than 2 hours per day.

    At the same time, print magazine consumption stood at 60.3%.
